Hi Guys and Girls. Thought i would share my car with you all. My aim for this car is to leave it looking fairly OEM. I like stealth.
However, a stealth car needs to have some punch. Thats where my story starts.
Most of my mods at this stage are bolt on parts with some slight customization here and there.
I have done all the work myself as i enjoy doing it and have been working on cars for many years. I like to get things right and i always take a common sense approach. Everything on my car has been well thought and no decision has been made lightly.
1 of the most important parts was the tune and also gaining a good relationship with your tuner. I was able to do this wit BPS in Brisbane. Excellent service and excellent results.
Plenty of questions have been asked and answered throughout this build thread. They are a little hard to find so please feel free to PM me or ask any questions on the thread.
The second build thread i create will go deep into reviews on all the parts and build that goes along with my GTX3071R Turbo Upgrade.
Im open to suggestions from you all
MY12 Golf R
19" Silver Talladega's (now black)
On Order: This will be all put into a seperate Build Thread
GTX3071R Turbo, 0.64 A/R
T3 Flange Cast manifold
Tial V44 External wastegate.
V-Band Hot side
New Dump pipe with V-band and EWG piping routed in
Full TBE Scorpion exhaust (non resonated)
Will be chopping the top off both and attaching the V-Band EWG DP to the scorpion DP......hopefully smoothly.
Oil Filters x 5 (to keep in stock)
ECS Tuning Billet oil filter housing
36mm socket to suit
Brake bleeding valve (very special)
Motul RBF600 Brake fluid.
eboost2 40 psi boost controller.
This is a full custom tune. Tuned to suit my car and my cars modifications. I was there with James the entire time and saw all the runs on the dyno. Even after the car was basically finished and there was some fine tuning we turned boost levels back down to stock standard and witnessed it run 348nm of torque which is stock standard. Then back up to a massive 505nm and 193awkw. Ambient temp was 23.5 and intake temp was 24. Shootout 44. The stock standard run was done with zero modifications, as is from factory. Then i made my modifications and James worked his magic. End results are excellent, car is smooth and has excellent power delivery.
