Internal wastegate
by Shawn M.
Does anyone know how much boost a stock internal wastegate can produce with having boost creep. For example a T-3 turbo---

Wastegates
by Dolemite
We were anticipating boost creep,But found the oppositte,With the internal wastegate we were only able to get 18 psi before the back pressure in the manifold forced the vent open.I think the vent itself flows plenty,Just holding it shut is the problem,We have found "boost spikes" with various methods of boost control,But no boost creep yet....

Turbo 16V manifold
by Dolemite
Most are custom tubular type,But AMS marketed a rough casting that the end user has to drill.

turbo manifold
by DannyBoy
I'm going to start making a few turbo manifolds.
Tubular style using s/s pipes... (I own a complete machine shop). For now i'm building one with un-even length runners, for my turbo 16v project.

I have no idea what kind of pricing I would charge though. maybe trades...

I have a couple of t3's SAAB turbo,Volvo turbo.The Saab one is sized really good for a VW.The volvo would be a bit big,but would have more top end.

AMS Manifold
by B Honnold
AMS is still selling the 16v turbo manifold.....I think they now run about $550 shipped, I paid $450 for mine a year ago and am in the process of having it machined.

They come very rough..the end user has to machine the mating surfaces flat, drill the holes for the head studs and install the studs for the turbo.

IMHO it's worth it. The manifold is brand new, a proven design and a custom one (not do it yerself) will run over $450 from somwhere like Matrix or Momentum anyway.

CIS turbo
by Chuck B(UFO motorsports)MN.
First thing you need to do is put the knock sensing ignition on your car.The second thing I learned from the Audi guys.They have been taking the 5k turbo warmup regulators off,and puting a rabbit one on.Then they put the porsche 924 turbo airflow meter on.The meter head off your rabbit should bolt right on the airflow meter...In the 924S that fuel system made 245 HP.I think hat solves the main prob. for turbocharging a CIS rabbit.

from IP address 216.17.8.168





why?
by vlksdragon

why would they take the 5K turbo regulator off? I thought it produced more fuel and it was vacuum controlled? What advantage would using the CIS warm up regulator provide over the 5K turbo one?
I have heard of using the porsche meter, however the 924 turbos are not that common out at the local pick-n-pulls, and I can't see spending the kind of $$ a Porsche wrecker would want for one.
Any suggestions on where I could find one for cheap to experiment with?

2.0L 16v
by Joel
I have a 1.8 16v with tt euro intake cam,tt race down pipe, tt exhaust,tt fuel enrichment,nology wires w/amp,k&n filter,and also a Queiffe. Now my engine does not have a lot of torque so I can't really utilize my queiffe. I am going to do a 2.0l block on my 1.8 head, what is there need to know? and special tips? is it basiclly a bolt on item? what else needs to be changed? Also what about are the hp's gains and torque gains? Thanks Joel Rothermel

2L
by Chrisp
Simply bolt it in. The 1.8l head produces more power than the 2L head cause of the extra airflow with the intake ports. So HP should be would be around 140-150. So you already have the advantage with the 1.8 head and euro cam. More power there. You will notice a gain in torque 2500-5000rpm. It's well worth it. Good luck!

2.0
by James
THe 2.0 block is definitely the way to go.

As for the comment about the 1.8 head being a serious mod, I think this is all heresay. by all means use it because you have it. But for anyone with a 2.0 head, swapping to 1.8 is a waste. It is true that the 1.8 flows better on the intake side, but the 2.0 head flows better on the exhaust side.

Just my oppinion

et for vw
by soch

i got a chance to make a few passes at the track this weekend, and my dub ran really well except for one problem.. i couldnt put it into fourth gear! Thats not a problem, i just wanted you to know what a all motor vw could do in tip top condition... on my last run i hit a 14.62 @ 89 mph i just put it in fifth so i lost all the momentum...on previous 2 runs i hit 14.90s @ 74 mph-76 mph coasting i wasnt pissed or anything cause i know im close to a 13 which was my goal for the quarter..also i cut a 1.997 60ft.

Heres how i ran it

1989 16v golf
was a 1.8 but i put a passat 2.0,(i didnt see any difference in performance in either the 1.8 or 2.0 head), so i have been using the 2.0 head.
autotech cams
techtonics fuel enrichment box
crane hi 6tr ignition
unothodox underdrive pulley
6 lb flywheel
magnecor 8mm plugwires
velocity diff kit
headders
also have euro bumpers, dumped the ac and power steering, and probably another 100 lbs of unwanted weight. i have raced the car with some chopped doors before and ran a 14.65-85 but those were clean runs at speed in the 90s +. This time i cut my best 60 fts and and 1/8 mile speeds 3-4 miles faster than before with no 4th gear! Lastly, the clutch was a korean special from autozone, so i was really surprised that it grabbed so well. One last thing, the motor and the head are stock.

ps i have 1/4 times for every mod i ever have done to the car, from the day it was stock to now to the vortech charger im in the process of putting into it.

hesitation problem after turbo install
by vlksdragon
hello all, here's the problem:
I just installed a 6psi, no wastegate, old skool BAE turbo kit on my 1.8 JH motor in a '83 Scirocco.
Went for a test drive and it hesitates a LOT under 3500rpm. Once the boost hits, the motor runs fine and pulls hard. It also idles poorly. The motor ran perfect before the install.
Details:
the downpipe isn't hooked up to the rest of the exhaust, but I don't think that matters.
There is a euro curve distributor on the motor, but it's set at stock timing. Could it be bringing in too much advance too soon?
So what else could be causing it to hesitate this bad, and then clear up when the boost hits?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
-Alex

Turbo Trouble
by Dolemite
I had a euro distributor and had problems as well,But hearing your having idle problems to leads me to think maybe you have a vacuum leak somewhere.

euro disty problems?
by vlksdragon
What sort of problems were you having with the euro disty? Fortunately, I have another scirocco with a stock disty that I can switch with.
Also, the idle problems go away as soon as the car is completely warmed up, so I don't think it's a vacuum leak. And there is a brand new O2 sensor on it as well.

many moons ago
by Dolemite
It was a long while ago,But if I recall,The problem was total advance wasn't right,I think it was too little as opposed to too much,I think something was broke inside.

On your poor idle maybe something is wrong with your cold start system?Too little fuel? Kinda hard to diagnose on-line.....Is your lower RPM power better when the car is up to temp?

Posted on Mar 7, 2000, 9:22 PM
from IP address 209.204.91.170





ok, let me elaborate.....
by vlksdragon
so here's the deal in it's entirety:
the car is an '83 Scirocco with a JH motor, euro curve disty, g-grind cam, eurosport exhaust.
I had the motor running perfectly before I began the install several weeks ago.
The install has been taking me awhile because I was doing other things as well like corrado brakes, 16v radiator with Passat dual fan, oil cooler, etc.
So after finishing the turbo and starting it up the other day, here are the problems:
Won't idle well, but will idle better after completely warmed up (but still shakey).
Drives very poorly (major hesitation) up to about
3500 rpms. Then boost kicks in and it takes off like a rocket. This happens even after it is completely warmed up. I made NO changes to the fuel system or ignition. I did leave the vacuum advance connected, and left the vacuum retard open on the disty. I also reconnected the aux air regulator to the throttle body. The O2 sensor is brand new, and the downpipe is not connected to the rest of the exhaust yet. Ignition timing is set at stock specs right now.
What else should I look for besides vacuum leaks?
Any help is greatly appreciated coz this is just pissing me off right now... =)

Vacuum leaks
by James
You might want to replace your injector o-rings, if you haven't already. As they age, they crack and cause poor idle when cold, as the car warms the idle improves because the o-rings expand due to the heat.

It's worth a try
James

not o-rings....
by vlksdragon

I replaced the o-rings several months ago, so I don't think that's the problem. And like I said, the car ran perfectly before the turbo, so it's related to the turbo or what looks to be my shitty install job.......

O2 sensor
by jerry
if it runs rough until the O2 becomes
active, its probably fuel mixture .mine
does this a little bit before it becomes
active. what fuel pressure are you
running? have you raised it since the
install?

Posted on Mar 7, 2000, 10:14 PM
from IP address 209.240.216.86





no changes
by vlksdragon
The car hesitates even after about 20 minutes of running, which should be more than enough for the O2 sensor to enter the loop. The sensor is brand new, by the way. Fuel pressure is at stock settings, as I didn't see any need to add fuel for only 6 pounds of boost....
