    ^+1, my exhaust to DPs add different tensile amounts to each bank, each being torqued at a different radius. This will be the same with their fabricated DP. So far, no big deal.

    Is it really that hard to make your own injectors? APR did it for the TSI engine. If someone has the balls and $$ just make an injector kit with a stronger fuel pump and you're golden. That's the first step, the RB turbo's still haven't been pushed to the max yet so... Looks like fueling is more important than the 10 half ass single turbo jobs that is all hardware.

    Looks like I spoke too soon about the other vendors.


    HPF Kit pics, from the other forum. Very promising.

    I wonder how APR is doing it but the entire N54 tuning scene can't. It's comical in a way.

    You know why? Because a lot of the N54 tuners are too comfortable just selling tunes that don't need bigger injectors...everyone is staying away from pushing this engine further as most profits are not up there in high hp tuning...quite sad actually for the enthusiasts that are looking for more hp all the time and aren't looking to trade/sell the car any time soon

    Well, the 2.0T also goes in more cars and is a more widely tuned platform. But they have fuel upgrades, you don't.

    Give me an upgraded fuel system, or tell me the stock one is fine for 500+whp without meth and I'll jump on some RB's faster than you can type RB.. Click here to enlarge I'm not a big fan of Meth for "extra" fueling, for octane and cooling yes, but not to supplement the system itself.

    The 2.0T platforms you are referencing have virtually no money to be made in them anymore Click here to enlarge E85 took care of methanol kits, OpenECU killed the tune market, and bolt-ons can be had for pennies on the dollar used.

    cobb is getting them soon so we'll know soon enough what's possible or not using that method of tuning

    Its not the most efficient and proportional way of fueling but so far it seems to work

    It works, it's just not my cup of tea.. I'll run a meth kit again, but mainly for cooling at Summer track events and such Click here to enlarge

    IMO single turbos are good for track and racing, not good for DD, torque will take a dump at low revs.

    yeah and lots of it too, but that thing will not spool anything below 3.5K to 4k rpm. So again not good for DD. I live in Beirut the capital of Lebanon as a lot of you might know, so no stretches at all and the city is tiny so low end torque FTW. But then again if i want a race car i wouldnt go for the 335 anyway even with a single. my opinion only.

    The solution is to drive at 4k RPM at all times, especially when in drive thru's.

    my honest suggestion, get something non-turbo as a second car Click here to enlarge i got an '07 VW Rabbit 2.5L a couple months back, very reliable!

    Can't believe no one else has asked... is that a spent shell casing in the tire tread?

    On-topic, I also don't get why someone can't go to RC Eng., or ID, and get larger injectors made? Good pump, larger injectors, (maybe) larger lines... and fueling should no longer be an issue...? Shouldn't be more than 1200-1500 all-in, right?

    want something fun to drive with easy mod potential... we'll have 3 cars, so reliability is not so important as long as it can be fixed in the garage. decent room, dog needs to fit and fun to drive for me. leasing maybe be an option, or pre-owned. She prefers a stick also, so this rules out many options.

    injectors aren't the issue as discussed in another thread. pump(s) are the issue and seems like we have more room in pressure ceiling, so line size not an issue either.

    A3 2.0T could be had with a stick, AFAIK. Might be worth a look.

    Good to know, thanks. Don't know a lot about N54 tuning, but a friend just picked one up, so I've been reading up on it a bit.

    we just really need to hit a fuel limit with a flash first...its been done with piggies and seems with piggies ~480whp is where the limit is at the moment WITHOUT meth before starting to lean out...with meth that ceiling on the piggies goes up to 500-520whp...if with the flashes we hit the same fuel ceilings then we'll know 100% that there is a true hardware fuel limitation...i say flashes because they can change IPW/IDCs
