With Turbo and Super charging you can create massive horsepower with vw motors.

2165cc turbo on DTA S40 engine management being mapped on the rolling road:D
233hp @ 10psi
265hp @ 15psi

compression set @ 7.4:1 so 20psi should be no problem :wink:

It really runs beautifully!
What intercooling/chargecooling do you have? Any idea on intake air temps?

Cheers,
Walter

I have bought a race tech meter which can monitor the temps on both sides of the charge cooler. I will try and get it in when I get a moment and see what the results are like? I may need a larger water tank depending on results as mine only hold 1.5 litres.

'may' ?
Better substitude that with 'will' :lol:
Or do you have a large radiator and a big waterpump to make the 1,5ltr work?

Quite a large fan assisted radiator above the gearbox and a vw electric run on water pump. I need to get some data first then may replace the tank and pump.

Here's some video of the first autox this season, a very technical, tight course with lots on switch backs. The entire course was done in 1st gear, topping out around 50-55mph. Even though I was out 1st group on a cold morning I still managed 15th in raw time out of 160+

First test drive in my draw through turbo 1600 I just finished building plus a video of a (smokey) cold start. Working out the issues one by one, she's gonna be fun!
