Re: got pics of speed's setup... how about spool2ltr? (badbennyb)

If I find my pictures of it I will post them but I think Spooled should take the honor.

Yah why doesn't eddie show pics of his motor. He never does!! After all he does have the most powerful 8v on these boards. I believe he got 370 hp to the wheels.
Man that is VR territory.

370 next spring!?!?!? What are you going to do to it? Have you not reached the limit yet!?!? Or are you going to hook up a VR6? Please share some insight to getting to 370.

Re: got pics of speed's setup... how about spool2ltr? (spooled_2ltr)

man, i really doont think anything negative about your car.
i just dont understand why people often overlook other people's cars.
(NOT mine, my car is still only making hp in the 100's)
I think you car is really cool looking, and it makes alot of hp#.
your setup is not what i would do but it works.
i have NEVER lied/made fun/or anything about your car.
i guess i have said sarchastic things before in a thread about your car, but in NO WAY was it directed towards you. More like to the people that think the "fast looking" features of your car are what makes it a cool car. I dont know where im going with this, but just trying to say i like your car, and im sorry for anything i said that was against you.

i'm assuming you're talking about the piggy-backing..well i dont really like it either but it does work and that is what counted at first..i am now yanking all that in favor of a new manifold,sds,fuel rail, and bigger injectors..no more piggy backing...
and i just wanted to make sure i did'nt piss you off and not know it...

Speed... who are some other guys with high hp setups?
Spooled... What was the psi setting for 270 hp? What psi would be needed to get over 200 hp? How built is your drive train?

that was @ 17psi....8-9 should get you around 200whp...i'm going to the dyno this friday to get some before #'s and graphs before i swap out the turbo and management system...we'll see what i can squeeze out of the super60 as when we dyno'd it first it was'nt runnin all that great...the car feels 100 times better now..probably puts out the same power but runs a hell of alot better...

Speed, I dont read the forum very day so I only knew about Spooled having a car in the high 200s. My fault.
What turbo are you running Spooled? And what turbo are you going to swap in? Also what do you think the limits of the 2.0 block is?

Re: got pics of speed's setup... how about spool2ltr? (JettaGT)

i'm runnin a super60 right now..swapping in a t3-4..as far as limits..who knows??? with right fueling and management i would'nt be suprised if you could get over 500 to the wheels...i mean honda's do it with 1.5 liters and big turbo's..why cant you do somewhat the same to a dub???granted the vw block and head are very simple compared to those but i dont think anyone will ever know until that one person pushes the envelope..who knows maybe my jetta will be a guinea pig..i wanna go faster...it just cost money..lots and lots of it...

The only thing holding back a 8v from putting out honda turbo numbers is the really comservative head. Honda's make much more power per psi of boost. Also they rev up to 9k unlike a 8v which cuts at 6500rpm.
Anyways keep the turbo boosting proud!! It's a vw and we are not like everyone else!!

Say I want to get 300hp at the wheels from my 2.0, what do I have to do??? I know this has probably been asked but I dont feel like creating a topic for it!
