so i took my car to the track for the first time since i installed the apr stg3 in december. ever since i finished it its gone like a raped ape compared to my k03s well at the track something just isnt right heres the mods.
awp w/ apr stg3
3" dumped exhaust at the d.p
carbonio intake
hks bov relocted to the upper charge pipe
evoms front mount
vf eng. dogbone
*stk clutch*
koni adj's full hard in the rear
now heres the times http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif
60' 2.549 2.753 2.994
1/8 9.686 9.980 10.145
mph 78.8 74.9 80.5
1/4 14.65 15.0 14.96
mph 98.68 98.78 102.15
any ideas why these are so high? i know my 60 ft are ish but the mphs are way low! could it be the clutch slipping half track? NEED HELP!

also was on the 91 oct. program... gotta love the west coast

ur problem is traction......60fts need some work (hence traction)....Also ur traps seem what a chiped 1.8T can get close around to 97, 98, 99 even i think

how in the world did you manage to get a carbino intake with your stage 3 setup? what did you do with the air horn and air flow straightner? and another question how are you running a blowoff valve on a awp motor?????????awp motor run like crap if you dont use a recirculating dv!

please ignore this guy: ^^^
Clutch man.. If thats the stock clutch it will slip with those kinds of mods. Ive seen it. (rather heard and smelt it) guy though he was breaking his tires loose in 4rth...
ah... NO.
Clutch wasnt in bad shape initially either. But the stage3 killed it real fast.

Re: (Cypher2k)

Im suprised APR Stg. III hasnt ate your clutch for breakfest! If your clutch was slipping you'd probably feel it, did you notice anything?

Re: (Kem)

What octane gas? The 102 trap was close to accurate if you're running 91. 93 will be about 103-105 range. How do you have the Carbino attatched to the 3" APR Maf adapter? Did you keep the flow straightener in? It's highly suggested you do so.

What were some of the other car there trapping? You said you raced a STi. Can you look on the slip and see what he trapped at? Any other 1.8T there? Is so what were their traps looking like?

Re: wtf! crappy stg3 qrt. mile times (wsaenotsock)

ok first off i just got a 3.25 to 3 inch reducer from hose techniques to run the carbonio, there was no change for the worse after reinstalling it in stead of the airbox. second the hks works great! i tried several months with both the forge006 and the bov and the bov seems to actually make the car run better, ive relocated it to just before the throttle body and the differnce is nothing short of amazing as far as between shift boost response. finally i couldnt see what the other cars i raced where trapping because they only give you your half of the timeslip at l.v.m.s.....lame-o
