Seems to be pretty flexible, which is what I was hoping for. Just getting boost control setup is a learning experience. I'll be using it for boost control, meth, and lastly switching my apr lpfp kit out for an 044 in an Integrated Engineering surge tank.

thanks
Did take it out for a quick cruise and actually felt like I noticed a difference. Granted i did this and the throttle pipe at the same time. I'll try to get some good pics soon, but i mainly wanted it as it fits the thunderbunny front really well.

What's your take on the SPM Mounts? Do you have the full mount kit (enigne/trans/dogbone)? I ask because I'm getting ready to buy the kit for my MKV.

Thanks.
I dig the mounts, i just have engine mount and tranny mount, but I'll be adding an HPA subframe puck soon. It's definetly got some vibs, but nothing in comparison to the clutch noise.

No I liked it just fine, but I figured I might as well make full use of my BMP. Got a hell of a deal on the 044 and the surge tank.

Interested in the APR LPFP if you're getting rid of it :-) Does it bypass the in tank pump or used in conjunction?

Awesome build by the way!!!

Great build. In particular I like the great deal you got on that stage 3. The TDI cup style front end is trick too.

Hoping to start very soon, starting to pull the current turbo kit off this week. Finally have everything, accumulating all of it has been the hardest part. The only thing I have yet to buy are the fuel injectors, and frankly I'm not sure what i'm going to do there. Going to be running an auxiliary injector for sure though.

I'd throw you 300 for em. Otherwise probably not.

So I'm finally getting somewhere. Got this pulled out and shipped off to the new owner.



Engine coming out next weekend, hopefully. Otherwise righter after the holdays.

Was cheap, might as well.

On that note this happened today. Took me and eurocars ~2 hours to get it pulled out. Starting the teardown next weekend

I didn't see it in the pic but there's a plastic baffle inside the sump. I'd rec replacing that, most of the time people don't and it makes a hell of a noise that you wouldn't guess it was that. Learned that the hard way.

Time for an update.

So ended up getting new piston rings as well. Just wasn't super happy with the shape of them. Head had new seals installed as well as valve guides. Waiting on a few gaskets.





Eurocars built me a turbo brace, like a badass.
