Man do I wish, we actually almost bought my buddy Ryan's track mod TA ticket. However, we've had some medical misfortune and are currently down an income so money has gotten crazy right. Would love to finally meet you in person, I'm assuming you are going?

Probably not this year, definitely want to make it out to a grid life event, seems like tons of fun. Problem is that I don't currently have a car suitable for a DE, and bringing one of the racecars would be a bit too much of a hassle, plus putting additional hours on them, ect, ect...

I'm getting really tempted to send this GT2876R out for a rebuild/upgrade and just slap it on my stock motor with a low boost tune. Found a shop in Canada that will rebuild, port and polish the manifold and compressor housing, machine the housing and upgrade to a GTX2876R and ceramic coat the whole setup for around $800 USD. I'd have to do the injectors, lpfp and FPRV at the same time but shes due for a carbon cleaning anyway.

Thoughts on this idea till I can finish my other motor?

Sell it, buy a bigger turbo. As soon as you get it on and running you’re going to want to upgrade

I dont want to go to a 30 series, spool times and power band just aren't what I want for the track. I was considering a 29 series but the more research I do it just doesn't seem worth it. Goal is just over 400whp and I really dont want more than that since fueling becomes an issue. The GTX2876R seems to be the sweet spot.

Also keep in mind I'm still K03 on the racecar. My K04 daily feels great but I just want a little more than what they can put out on the racecar so the GTX2876R is the turbo I'm going with.

I have the S3 injectors and RS4 FRPV ready to go on with the turbo. Hoping the lpfp is up to the task.

I had the GTX2867R for 2 years and the power level I had was amazing, you will need an upgraded LPFP to have a steady power level specially on track.
I would suggest to stick to the GTX2867R.

Needed something to do for some zen time. Harder than expected, still need to replace my temp zip ties and hose clamps and clean it up a little. Turned out pretty good if I do say so myself.

Thanks for this epic thread!!

so much info for me and the new Time attack build on the cards.

Got a question on the DSG oil cooler, If the car was still been driven daily, could you just leave the pump off for the oil cooler and the car would fun fine and then on the track, halfway through the warmup lap turn it on to let the oil get up to temp? Just don't know enough on the DSG systems to know.

Will post a detailed update soon, have not been very good of updating here lately. Not much has chagedbwoth the car hardware wise, but we have been hitting the track. Not as much as we'd like but the most I've been out in a while. Some pretty cool shows and events. Happy to report the car has been trouble free this whole season (aside from stupid minor shit).

So here's a brief recap/update and picture dump.

Attended our 3rd annual Windy City Dubfest, car has one an award every year so far. This is also the cleanest this car has been in years lol.



Took home a top 20 award!



The rest of the year we concentrated on just getting the car on the track and dialing everything in. Biggest event we did this year was also my first time back in competitive driving. The cars been in limbo as far as keeping it a HPDE car or finally building for a specific class and start racing again. Well, one thing led to another and we now find ourselves in Gridlife Time Attack running in Track Mod. Lots of big things on the way for the car and looking to run a full Gridlife TA season. 9 rounds total but points are taken from your top 5 rounds.

Our paddock at Gridlife south.



First time ever having a full pit crew and team support. Very happy to be a part of the VWRacers family.



Track shot dump


















Chasing lap times takes it toll lol.


While this picture was taken on the way back from Road Atlanta, it sums up how I felt at the end of the season lol.



Already started on the winter projects. First up, more aero! Finally got around to getting these done. Had to modify the canards to work with the fender flares.

You should mount the splitter supports to the actual bumper bar, not to the bumper cover. Are you planning on doing a flat floor?

Those supports go through the bumper into brackets bolted to the steel bumper support. I was literally in the middle of fabbing up the flat bottom when I found the class I'm running in doesnt allow it. So now I have a 3/4 done full flat bottom setup just sitting in my garage lol.

Finishing the rest of my fueling parts. As of right now the plan is sticking with the gen 2 GTX2876R, shooting for just over 400whp.

APR HPFP
DW65V LPFP
APR S3 injectors
RS4 PRV
water meth

Keep going back and forth if I just throw the turbo on my stock motor and run a low boost tune or just go for the gold and finally finish my motor build. Money is crazy tight right now so progress is extremely slow. Also contemplating OEM manifold or HPA.
