Why a Q45 TB and not a V8 vw/audi unit?

For the downpip, TT=audi or TT=Techtonics Tuning?

Can't wait to get home from work so I can see your webpage.


V8 vw/audi tb is drive by wire I believe, and the q45 was what I had at the time and a flange was readily available as well, not to mention it is 84mm.

The downpipe is TT as in Technonics Tuning



Problem I ran into this week.

1. rear main seal appears to be leaking

so while I have the transmission off I will open the transmission back up to do some things I wanted to do in there!


2. with the car down I might possibly make a header

yes.

what often happens is the rivet that holds the fork to the shaft breaks and the fork comes loose and is free with everything spinning it will break easily.

here is a pic I found:

Wow. So if the rivets break what are some of the symptons from the trans?

well if it breaks then you can't shift into a gear. because if the rivet comes loose the fork most likely breaks.

its in some ways a common problem with 02M's
Not my problem. My problem is a constant grinding at idle and after its in gear and i let off the clutch it continues to grind, but there is no grinding into gear. Its almost like the disk or pressure plate has cracked or something.

I havn't been to the dyno. but my goal is for 300.

Right now I have the car down fixing a leak and redo something in my transmission, will update the firmware in the megasquirt.

also I will try to get better suspension since the one thats on the shell is blown.


right now school is in full effect so its hard to get time to work on the car so bear with me. But ill answer any questions you have keep them coming! :thumbup:

All that for 300?

You could have boosted a 12V instead, made much more power, and enjoyed actually racing the car over the past 5 years instead of just running your mouth to people that actually post time slips.

The years roll by and you still haven't made a pass.:laugh:



reasons I didn't build a 12v turbo.


1. i dont believe in having a turbo 6cyl powering the 2 front wheels it is a poor way to make a car fast. (I prefer rwd for that combo)
2. My next door neighbor/child hood friend has a 2.9 fully built vr turbo jetta that has dyno'ed 600whp already. I help him plenty of times with the car why should I build a similar car.



Iam sorry I didn't built the car in a shorter time frame but being that I couldn't find a full time job and then returning back to school had a huge effect on the project. but at the end of the day i didn't build it for you or anybody else. I built it to hopefully run it in the 11.5 index for Charity.

Charity I mean organization(s) that help out in the community locally.

That was touching. I built a bolt-on VRT while working full time and getting a Bachelors degree at night. Posting time slips all along the way while e-thug trolls like you ran your mouth in my threads. Glad to see you having issues:)

thanks for the hate. but my previous post boiled down to 1 point:

300whp all motor is faster then 300whp on FI. in the 1/4 mile for a couple of factors.


this whole build has nothing to do with you. Its funny, the younger me would just call you out. But honestly this car has a different purpose. thank you for stopping by though with the hate. it doesn't phase me.

iam not here to argue with you this is a build thread. take care
