Re: Do all of you on here even have turbos? (turbo8vjetta)

My car is almost completely disassembled and me and some friends are repainting it. When the paint job is complete, we will begin work on the turbo setup. I am always on the FI forum so that I can get ideas and advice from fellow vortex members who already have turbo setups. I think this is one of the major purposes of the forum and is probably what most people use it for. BoB

I have a turbo, but It's only half way installed.
I don't think having a turbo necessarily qualifies someone to answer questions about it, though.

Re: Do all of you on here even have turbos? (turbo8vjetta)

nope...im a know it all...dont even have a turbo...just spend all my time online reading and researching ...and then telling other people how it should be done right without even having any first hand experience. I have though owned a BB t3/t4 50 trim turbo, a t3/t4 60-1 turbo, TeamPsi manifold, Turbonetics deltagate, TeamPsi downpipe, Apexi SAFC, Stock Mitsu Blowoff valve, 020 quaife, 02A quaife, rebuilt o2o trans with 3.94fD and quaife, ive torn apart a 2.0 engine, im also a know it all when it comes to programmable engine management systems...ive never owned em but i can tell you how you are doing things wrong and the way you should be doing things right...never even tuned one myself, although ive played with the free software online, and participate in several forums dedicated to programmable managment tuning. I am someone who you would say has patience. I understand the fact that i will save money in the long run if i do my research first and make sure things are done right the first time, rather than not knowing a dang thing and getting all boost happy, and A. BLowing my engine. B. tearing my tranny into pieces. C. buying the things i need not want etc etc etc. Im almost to the point where im finding that a high horsepower fwd is useless, as in no traction...Unless we are allowed to run drag slicks on the street. Basically what im trying to say...is What kinda thread is this?

Re: Do all of you on here even have turbos? (oneflygti)

My problem is everybody is always saying some dumb thing about someone or something.It just sounds the cocky,arragant attitudes are those of juveniles that should not even be driving VW's.Maybe should be rocking their Pep boys'd out Honda listening to Eminem.Like i said,wan to be's or the business.

I'm with Peter on this one.When you already know everything,then you must have one hell of a fast car.Do you?
I have a turbo MK1 GTI,that I'm sick of trying to keep on the road(trannys blow apart).I also have a MK2 that will be getting a G60 turbo with a cableshift(should be putting it in this weekend).

Re: Do all of you on here even have turbos? (GTIRACER2.0t)

Listen to these guys with experience. Yes, I have a turbo. Yes, I know how it works. If you want good information, go to http://www.howstuffworks.com. Look under "cars", then "turbo chargers." Edumicate yourself and then come back here and tell all these "know it alls" that they are full of crap.

What IS your problem exactly? One Fly GTI says What kind of thread is this? Do you have a turbo? Do you want a turbo? Are you happy with it? pissed at it? All of thee are relevant topics to post on this forum.
Apparently you have nothing to say about it which brings me to the point first stated by One Fly, and What the hell are you saying with this thread?

By the way something cool did actually come of this thread, so don't goout there and commit suicide with humiliation: Golf Cart, that is one cool graphic in you signature!!! That is totally awesome! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
