    • APR Stage IV GT28 turbo upgraded GTI takes on and walks away from a JB4 tuned BMW135i

      Here is a very impressive GTI we have seen before over on VWBoost racing a GermanBoost Network member (bigdnno98) with a tuned Mistsubishi Evo. The GTI is certainly impressive and features a GT28 turbo upgrade, built motor, race head, and 30 psi of boost. The 135i gets walked fairly easily but in its defense it is running a BMW JB4 tune on pump gas (Map 5) with the only other supplemental modification being a front mount intercooler.


      135i owners with a tune definitely should not underestimate tuned VW Golf's although this particular one is built to a fairly high level. Would be great to see a rematch with the 135i running race gas/E85 and downpipes.

        I took off the direct port. Wanted something more simple. I have a 125ml/min nozzle right now, in my throttle body pipe. Got a 675ml/min nozzle going in tomorrow (gonna turn down the pump duty cycle). More meth will help my car stop breaking up top end. The tune RAI left me with f u c k ing blows. Even 21psi breaks up randomly. Oh well. Still like 360-380 whp (my guess) so it's still fun lol.

        i wouldn't put that in your TB pipe, unless you want to replace your TB by the end of spring.

        If anything leave the 125 (bump it to a ~200ml) in the TB pipe and get a TB spacer, but even with that 675 is way too much -- you won't get equal distribution in your runners, perhaps go with a 250-300 there.

        Or just go with the HFS-4 or 6 and get a solid tune for that and see if you can push 450whpClick here to enlarge

        but seriously, who is tuning eurodyne? don't hear of any GOOD reputable VW eurodyne tuners, at least not for our platform.

        I've sprayed 575ml for a few months in the throttle body pipe, last year, and my throttle body is fine. If it goes, then I confirm that's not a good idea. Plus, my pump duty cyle will be at 50-80%, not 100%, so it's not gonna be spraying a full 675ml/min. more like 400-500ml/min. Gotta run some data logs and figure out the sweet spot. All I know is I need more meth to supplement for fuel due to my horrible tune.

        Any reputable tuner can tune eurodyne. It's just like tuning K Pro or Hondata or Motronic, etc. . Its all the same, just a tuning suite on my laptop. I just haven't had free time that matches up with Franz Diebolds free time. He's the guy I want to use, he's pretty close to me. He's huge in the STI rally world/ australian based ECU's.

        Oh yeah, to answer the second part of your question... My eurodyne "boost manager plus" controls my meth pump and my bosch 044 pump. Gives you a sweet RPM x MAP 3d diagram to give you great control over the duty cycles.
