So I dynod the Rabbit on the weekend...

specs: 2002 ALH TDI engine, 1982 Rabbit pickup
custom intercooler, tall-ratio 020 with 3.42 R&P
.205 injectors, ASV ECU, Rocketchip 3.1, 10mm injector pump




They didn't have a way to read the rpm off of the diesel,
so I had to do the calculations myself.

More detailed posthttp://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?778864] over in the Hybrid/Swap forum

Why is it whenever I give someone a ride in the Rabbit,
they end up smiling real big, getting all giddy, and say that it
can't be a diesel?

276 ftlbs of torque!?!?! JESUS!!
I thought HP and Torque lines are supposed to cross at 5252rpm?

They would if he could rev to that.. probably around 50whp/50lbft.
Sick torque though, time to get a tow bar and haul around stuff.

Re: My Rabbit TDI dyno: why bother with a VR6? (MrDave)

You did an awesome job with that swap. I remember following the updates with anticipation. Great to see your results. That is awesome, exactly what a truck should be. Now, build a high revving, hp monster and tow it around with your caddy!

very nice - something for those considering swapping from a diesel to a 16v or 8v ABA. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

And what kind of mpg are you getting?

It's been about 5.3L/100km, 53MPG(imp), 44MPG(US) for the last few tanks. Warmer weather and summer diesel should make a bit of a difference.
Of course, the mileage all depends on how far you push the throttle.

Torque steer hasn't been all that bad. The tranny has the Peloquin 80% limited slip, which seems to help a bit. The scary part is hitting a patch of ice or sand under full throttle at speed and having one wheel start spinning.
The suspension and brakes aren't setup yet, so most of my spirited driving has been straight line.
No quarter mile, 0-60, or 60-90 times as of yet.
The calculators on the web would suggest an ET in the high 14s with a trap of 92 for the quarter. 'Course, I'd be at the top end of 4th gear by then.
