Yes it is, but surprisingly light.
Last pic of the motor parts is one of my rods.
Proof that something happened.
That happens when an injector driver fails. Best send it to someone to get tested and fixed. We can help email us at kandpperformance at gmail dot com or send me a pm.
Yeah this is still the stock longblock w manifolds, ms3 pro and vp m5 fuel. Tires are huge at 26" which is a good point. I have some 185s I can try ;)
New motor pics.
I gotta upload the vid but she made 289whp before I had to stop. Starter shorted and took out one of the ecu fuses took too long to diag and I didn't have one. Still some power left on the table.
Thats only true if the sensor is narrowband. If they are wideband they need to be wired and work completely.
Egt isnt bad to have but thats more about melting valves than what turbo you have. I do all cyl egt or none. Wideband is more helpful.
It is cold out and you are doing more short trips during warmup?
Stock pistons will hold 900whp for a little bit. Forged 1200whp easily. Rods become a problem before good forged pistons do.
I use JE personally but literally any forged piston will hold more power than most people can put through the tires.
Just don't raise the compression past stock with the piston design. You can use a spacer headgasket when you finally do the turbo install.
There is usually only one (green) sensor there. It could be someone installed a second as a replacement or for a separate gauge and left it.
Generally no, the output of the vw sensor is 0-5v. So unless you just use the sensor portion and not the amplifier, you may be stuck.
I normally just use a grommet or wire in a bulkhead connector.
None of the firewall penetrations are particularly weatherproof.
Wow, I have had that happen a handful of times over the years and it is not an easy find. Especially if you think the tb port is on the manifold side! Usually happens with the booster check valves as...
I use king for the street builds and king x series on the higher hp ones. Ring choice is usually up to the piston mfg if you are going w aftermarket pistons.
