      I actually am really excited to try the engine mounts out! They are the ultra rare DLI Teknik mounts. Look em up, they are made in Sweden and very hard to find. Been sitting on these for years...

      I'm starting with 550cc injectors and not expecting to exceed 400 or so to the crank. Once everything is fine tuned and the cars running well, I'll upgrade the stock fuel rail, the throttle body, and the injectors to try and get some more power out of her. Only issue I will face then is the stock pistons...

      To do list and hoping it's this week.
      Finish exhaust between dp and cat back
      Finish wiring. Need to repin the n75 since it's deleted and use the connector in place for the solenoid( which wasn't stock on the amu motor)
      Mount the catch can and plumb it.
      Replace 2 coolant lines that cracked
      Clamp down all the charge piping
      Intank fuel pump upgrade
      Diesel geek sigma Short shifter

      As she sits, sorry for the shat picture

      2 minor things still needing worked out. The map sensor flange was for the smaller diameter sensor so I need to replace that.
      Also, the charge piping gets in the way of the stock battery. So I need to either replace it with a smaller unit, maybe a high powered Motorsports/atv battery? Or a Braille, which I'd rather not drop 250 on...orrr I could relocate the battery to the trunk, which seems like a real biatch

      This deka battery looks like a good option, anyone have any experience with it? I'd keep it on a trickle charger since it isn't a daily car...ETX30LA is the part number

      Nice! Did you modify the existing intake manifold?

      The easiest might be to just redo the charge pipe to the throttle body to fit the stock battery. Relocating can be a real pain with making sure it is sealed/vented or going to a good dry-cell that will also cost a small fortune.

      I believe there are smaller dimension batteries, not necessarily light weight or racing, that would suffice as well. Thinking like a Civic sized battery possibly. That's what Arnold suggested at least. I'd rather not be hacking up or changing any of the charge piping if I don't have to...

      It's the custom intake manifold from my Jetta years ago, nothing crazy special but gives it a little bump in power I think.

      Smaller diameter MAP sensor is in, it's also 3.0 bar where stock is 2.5 bar, so we had to adjust the tune which is now done. Wiring is done as is the wideband conversion.

      The e85 500 walbro pump I got years back turned out to not be a good option bc we would potentially have fuel starvation issues under a quarter tank...so I ordered, and already received the dw65v fuel pump which is drop in and plug and play. Doing that this week.

      Also need to finish the exhaust still, really just a 12 " section connecting the DP to the cat back exhaust.

      Lastly need to figure out a battery solution and leaning towards the EX30L. 21lbs battery made by deka. Will allow me to use it in the stock location.

      Need to put coolant and oil in, prime turbo. Very close!

      Nice going!!
      But what did you do with the compound setup?? Binned it, or is it laying around somewhere??

      I have most of it laying around still and would be interested in getting rid of it. It was never finished so it's not like it's a complete kit but their are a good bit of hours into the manifold and downpipe. I sold the gt28rs but still have the holset hx35. I also have both wastegates still as well both unused, new tial vband mvs.

      I figured when I finally have my car back and up and running I'd put together a FS ad with details and pics of everything left over. I still have a 2000 donor parts car ( minus the motor and tranny) that I had been planning to swap the twin turbo setup into.

      I’ve read a lot about converting to wideband. What is the purpose of doing his? What benefits do you gain going wideband?

      I’ve got a 2002 225hp amu I believe. Do I have wideband?

      Wideband is needed if you're swapping in a different 1.8t motor like I have for one. I think people also do it bc it gets better readings to the ECU being wideband vs. narrowband and allows for more variation/tuning with the ECU. Anyone else feel free to chime in...

      Updates, very close. Hoping to get it started this weekend and inspected and aligned this upcoming week.

      Exhaust finally done! Fits great can't wait to hear it. No cat, not going to be quiet...


      Went with a deka gold Miata battery. 25ish lbs and good bit smaller from stock. Fits perfect.

      First start up was a success! Bad misfiring at first was concerning, it normalised and idle became nice and smooth. Burping out the coolant system, still need to bleed clutch. We noticed a minor exhaust leak at the dp vband so need to straighten that out. Also need to replace 02 sensor... $hit adds right up hahaha

      Car sounded great though once it smoothed out. Not too loud and the turbo spool and the bov sounds were very niceee

      Getting inspected and aligned this week if all goes well!

      Finally back in my possession!



      Conservative tune boosting 17psi to break everything in. Old greddy ebc boost solenoid is shot, and my p3 gauge won't read afr unless I purchase a lc2 wideband controller, so I'm going to run the innovate scg1 EBC/wideband gauge. I'll keep the p3 still but it doesn't even read engine codes. It has the capability to read codes and in most newer cars it will read it, but our old k-line obd doesn't compute with it I guess.

      Need a new fan control module...

      Also running 550 injectors and have some bigger ones I can throw in there once everything else is sured up.

      The oil and coolant temps would potentially be an issue on a hot day (or if I drive it hard for an extended period of time(auto-x or track time) so this winter we will install the external oil cooler I had on the Jetta.

      So far so good!

      She’s looking really clean! Like mine when I first got her. Few years with no paint and daily driving changed all that though....haha

      A lot better shape then mine at the moment. I’ve managed to dent the side skirt on the passenger side and bottom out over s curb so in dire need of some body work and a paint job right now.

      Great work though! Where did you get the S callipers?

      Thanks man...

      The calipers are brembo Porsche boxster with s line stickers

      Scg-1 gauge came in yesterday. Hopefully over the next week I can get that installed and setup as well as the fan control module.

      Lastly, ordered a couple lcd display screens to replace the one in my cluster , can only get em from China on eBay but they're pretty inexpensive surprisingly

      Some updates... Got her in the Dyno a couple weeks ago...conservative tune, and only ran this at 27psi on 93 octane, this turbo is good in low 30s and I could run e85 eventually if I really want to get the most out of it...



      Also picked this up and haven't installed it yet...



      And these...which should be installed within the next couple weeks

      of course the wheels dont fit over the boxster brakes so now I am going to be upgrading to the R32 caliper setup with 2 piece front rotors from MTEC (UK company), that way I will only need to do 10mm spacers up front. Otherwise I would've needed 20's and there would be a ton of wheel poke...

      Also decided to upgrade the rear calipers to the 225 model so I can upgrade to the 304mm rotor using the s4 conversion kit from cbauto(also UK)

      used one love auto parts for the first time and they have a great assortment of r32 and other VW parts generally in good shape and not terribly expensive. Now I will brake down the front and rear calipers and go get them powdercoated, hopefully have that all buttoned up by the end of next week but things take time so we shall see...Ill post pics when I can, and I suppose I will also have the boxster BBK up for grabs

      any chance you need a nice 42dd downpipe, its stainless and with a tune could get you to stage 2? Its only built for the TT180q and was 700$ new, looking for 350$...thanks!

      Yep sure is... I honestly don't remember the paint code off hand. Thought it was always referred to as aviator gray but may be nimbus gray. Don't think too many were made in this color.
