MKV GTI revo stage 2+ K03
FOR SALE: Brand New Autotech Pumps $400 (VW TFSI, Audi TFSI, Golf R, Scirocco, MK5 GTI, MK6 GTI, ED30 + 35, Audi S3)
Yeah I know and they are valid questions. The truth is the pump can do it and this is even with pressure remapped to 130 bar BUT this is at high RPM where the pump is quite capable, if you were to drop it down under 3K you would really have to wind the boost back to allow for its reduced capacity.
Also WE/I didn't do anything weird as such but the car did and I'm sure this is mainly due to the VWR intake really stuffing up the MAF values hence the ECU sees incorrect load values which really muck up a range of maps but thats another story.
We did a similar thing with Zbeasts tune a couple of years ago but yes afterwards both owners were/are quick to add the cooler and pump plus rail valve etc etc. We log these cars extensively so we know they are OK but it not for general consumption and some cars you simply can't either particularly the Audis it seems
The worst thing out of all this is when the proper ST2 tuned cars get only 208 or similar and after seeing these runs the owners start to complain but they have a way better bottom end and their cars are a fair bit quicker too.
