Ill look into the USP lpfp option, if its just a drop in solution ill have a hard time not doing it lol.

As for the valves, ive gone back and forth. Considering building the top end with some fancy Ferrara springs and valves, but have seen guys running gt30Xx turbos pushing 5-600 hp on stock FSI valve trains with 0 issues. Im trying to avoid doing things unnecasarily if I can. Money is not limitless, and 3 projects at once is killing me lol.

Also considering doing a RFD, have not done enough research on this yet and was wondering what the pros and cons are to it. Anyone care to chime in?
The valve springs might be one of those if ain't broke don't fix it kinda things. Tsi guys might have more issues with them then we do? not sure


Here's some good info on upgrading the lpfp

And the pump itself

Stupidly over priced ^

RFD
Cons: cold temperature starts, cold idle, cold acceleration, cost of delete kit and software to code RFD and potential reduction in fuel efficency when cold

Pros: preventative RF motor failure, marginal flow benefits if using BT over GTX28xx

youll get a faster spool. on a built motor, the gains will be better cause youre holding the turbo back anyways.

for op's built motor, i say do it and get dm's new 3.5" dp for crazy spooliness

On a daily driver vehicle in a cool climate I would say not worth it unless you have a runner flapper motor issue.
On a track vehicle when chasing every last pony then yes.
Warmer climate and you have the inlet manifold off and you are getting or changing your tune then breakeven so yes.
Remember that there is hardly any useable spool when the engine is cold if you take care of your engine ;)
I think in the OP's case it is probably breakeven with the FT or K04 hybrid, if I was going GT28xx or GT30xx I would do it no question.

^ how you liking the dm tune? you all squared away

but back on the f23t, i agree that it will take a little extra time before it runs right in the cold, but after about 5-10mins, it will be fine. i say do it. ill be doing it when i take my mani off

Hey Andrew, I have the DM programmer sitting in Oregon waiting to ship to Oz but I am waiting on some Unitronics hardware that I ordered over 2 weeks ago to be despatched to my shipping agent (In Oregon). If I don't have the Uni stuff by Friday I am going to get the progammer shipped as I have some dyno time booked at the end of May and I want the DM tune on by then (It's about 10 days for shipping)

Thank you for the welcome Das, I have a lot of respect for those forum members that are attempting their own builds/repairs/maintenance probably because I do all of those things myself.

Well, being a career diesel mechanic has its advantages, though not as many as you would think lol. Glad to see another member that does their own work as well, there's quite a few of us!

Haha a lot of us on the forums do our own work. That's why we get on the forum. Here is my pos. Previous owner fell asleep and drove it into a ditch. Had to rebuild most of the front end.

How it looked when I got it.

About as far torn down as I needed it to be.

How it looked before the accident.

Update!

Not as cool or good of an update as I would like, but update none the less. My HPFP stud conversion should be here Monday, and my new EJ valve cover is expected on Wednesday!!! So nice having parts show up :-) and knowing I have stuff coming in every week for the next 2 months makes me as giddy as a school girl lol.

Update!

This is a cool one lol
EJ valve cover came in today. Cleaning, polishing and taking it in Saturday to get powder coated . Thanks to the previous owner who shipped it with the fitting to run to my catch can! Now just need a block off for the turbo and figure out what to do with my front vc vent that runs to the intake manifold. I think I can run the cc return through the hose coming up from intake manifold if I can find an adapter.



If anyone has the EJ or IE valve cover can you chime in with your PCV routing?

you can either route it into the exhaust (pre cat would be best), vta cc, or just dump it

im going to dump mine pre cat eventually.

What did you do with the front hose? The one going down to the throttle body.
