Re: I want to max out my auto 1.8T! help! (nate1.8t)
Have seen that already, but thanks... Vwroom is still well under the 250hp barrier... I want to get as close to it as is reasonably possible.
DBJ must be pushing close to 250 at the crank...
yup, his dyno came in at 213 at the wheels
assuming 15% drivetrain loss
213/.85 = 250.6 at the crank
he has the AWW/evo intake, forced motion 3" exhaust
dam great for all bolt on mods
im not sure what the specs of the auto tranny are as far as max hp/torque tolerance, but if you go to any stage 3 kits, definitely get a tranny cooler to keep it from destroying itself. this is an area where noone has really gone before. i know pes has a tip chip for passats for the 2.8 V6 passat supercharger kit and thats pushing 295 hp (not sure what the torque is). so theres alot of possibility for upgrades, just dont know where the limit is for the 4 sp tranny............
keep us posted
