I am not trying to steal people from AudiSnawb's GTG, I actually wish I could go to BOTH! Nevertheless, my wife's birthday is the 26th, so I started looking into the 19th.
Saturday 2/19 10:30 AM at Uno's in Waltham. Details are here:<ul><li><a href="http://forums.audiworld.com/newengland/msgs/8313.phtml">2/19 GTG</a></li></ul>

I am currently running a large injector file from GIAC. They worked with someone on 389cc (I think)
injectors. It is nice beacause the injectors are sufficient to run a KO4 and maybe even a tweaked KO4.
So now they are getting ready to release their KO4 software. They have been running it on a few cars on both coasts that way they get a good sample size. I will be running a GIAC file, not yet available but close.

keep me up to date with how things are going. Are you going to dyno again at KTR?

It is kind of my home dyno. They know my car so well. We have done some winking in the past. I actually have been very pleased with the car.
Keep in mind I am not running a big turbo, I thought about it and in all honesty it was too expensive and extensive and I was not ready to take the plunge. My car is still so new.
The current set-up is nice. Quick, not a monster and runs out very quickly up high, the KO3 just gives so much that it eventually can't push any more good air.
I am not hoping for any miracles with the KO4, 10-20 increase in whp and 10-20 in wheel torque. I would also be pleased if it can hold a little more on the high end.
Ray sorry I did not get back to you via e-mail. Sounds like you have a lot going on. I will hop on later and touch base. How is the car running?

I suggest an intercooler upgrade even with the K04. It's definitely the easier way to go and a great comprimise of value and performance. The k04 route is definitely going to be more bang for the buck. When I raced LaserK04 his car was super strong with injectors and FMIC.
As for my car, I've had it back a week now and I'm loving it. The potato is in and rocks. At 11 psi the thing was reasonably fast. Right now I have it at 14.7 psi and I'd say it's as fast as my old setup was at 20 psi. I seem to have some more room left with fuel. I'm going to keep bumping up the boost until I run out of fuel. I would guess I can run 16-18 psi until I need the 550cc injectors. I'm also seeing no timing correction at all. If I can get away with running the 100 oct program I will. I was actually running it now realizing it the other night. I didn't hear any pinging, but I was logging and that's the only thing I trust. If I have to dial back some timing with Lemmiwinks so be it. This turbo is not laggy at all compared to my old one. I have the high flow cat on the car (I passed inspection :>P) and I'm making 15 psi a little before 3200 RPM.

Thanks not bad for the little turbo. Much better than what I started at. Yea, the Potatoe rocks. Congrats on that project, such an efficient turbo and many believe it is the optimal big turbo for the 1.8T..
I believe the RS is designed for a quicker spool compared to something like the GT28R or the T28. Your were running a GT25 prior I think right??
I appreciate the FMIC advice. I am actually going to wait until spring and use the Ecode FMIC, it fits behind the stock bumper and it has shown to be effective.
I am looking forward to seeing your car.
Have a good one.

the .64 trim GT28RS is still not a big turbo by any means on the 1.8T...but it will probably bring the engine internals close to their limits on pump gas. The hot side is exactly the same in this turbo and my old one. The cold side is similar, but slightly different trim between the 2 turbos. Another stage 3 guys is experimenting with the GT2871R right now, but he's been having some engine issues so there are no numbers to report on that front. Hopefully we can catch up soon.

The Get together schedualed for this Saturday (2-26-2005) has been canceled due to lack of interest and cold weather... we will defonitly go ahead and get it going in a month or two when things warm up... another reason, is because There was a G2G last weekend, and most of the people around these boards went to that one.... hopefully we can all meet up sooner or later and have one big g2g.... Sorry for the inconvinence... but a new date will be announced in the future!

in CT on March 12. Hopefully it will be a little bit warmer by then. This will be a fairly large event so I'm sure it will be worth checking out. It's on a saturday and only about 1.5-2 hours from boston. I'm probably going to be leaving around 9/9:30 to check this out if.
