    My shop is much better with photos than I am.



    Thanks to Bluewater Performance for an A+ job and service to this point. Looking forward to wrapping it up in the next week or two.

    Should be about done right?

    This build turned out really well and was pretty harmless.

    Looking forward to the performance although I understand the elevation issue.

    Thanks, my goal was generally stock'ish appearing and right sizing the turbo for the application. In this case, it is just enough turbo to outflow the stock fuel system (at sea level) while retaining good spool and will hold moderate boost until 7,500rpm.

    I don't want to push it too hard, but I think it will be good for a high ten on race gas on a cool day here. Others have been able to push the turbo further after upgrading fuel delivery at sea level and that makes me hopeful that it will still reach the limits of the stock system at 5,280ft. Unfortunately, I broke the clutch in just in time for everyone to take off for the holidays so it is looking like it won't be running to it's full potential until mid January.

    I haven't had the chance to drive the car without traffic, but my shop did offer to throw it on the dyno free of charge while they tested out new software so I jumped at the opportunity. The runs below are at 25lbs and a 91/100 blend of around 96 octane.

    Please note: These numbers are from runs at 5,300' in elevation.

    I'm not very familiar with the Dynocom and how it reads, but they said it reads low. I'll have to track down a dragy or wait until spring to get an idea of what the car is actually putting down in the real world. They also sent a corrected dyno at 525whp, but that is attempting to compensate for runs at sea level so I'm not putting much weight on that number.

    It doesn't but I'm not sure if they have a large variance among them. Generally, they read high.

    Mind posting it? I feel it's accurate.

    I think this one is overstating pretty significantly (might simply be applying correction factor to get an N/A car to sea level numbers when my turbo could be covering half of the discrepancy). 513wtq out of 2.5l at only 25lbs seems preeeeetty optimistic. The strip will tell the story.

    Video of the dyno run + corrected numbers at the end... (someone may need to format this thing for me)...

    The turbo is having to work a bit harder to hold 24lbs at 7,000 RPM here and I am seeing some IAT creep and timing pull after 2 pulls so I'm likely going to be looking at WMI options ahead of summer temps.

    I need to find some more road! I can't get the raw data out of this thing so I'm not sure if I was on the brakes before or after the 1000' mark, but I'm fairly confident it has a low 11 at ~123 in it as it sits.

    1/8 mile split was 7.6@93mph.

    Update for my first trip to the track on the Xona hybrid. DA was approximately 7,250, my launch was atrocious and shifting was not much better. Race weight of 3,515lbs. I'll be back in a week or two after adding WMI and taking ~200lbs out of the car (summer wheels/tires, rear seat delete, light battery, low fuel).This run was on ~102 octane (11 gallons 100 + 2.5 gallons E85) and my intake temps have been out of control and were north of 50c sitting at the starting line. I'll have to review the logs to see where they ended up.


    I'm hoping I can get a 10 out of this setup without having to pull any weight that would be noticeable to a passenger.


    Overall, I feel the turbo showed very well, especially considering the altitude, and that I need to get back on a day where I can get a good launch in.

    I don't think that is bad at all for the DA.

    Obviously more practice won't hurt.

    Thanks. There was an Apr stage 2 rs3 on e85 there trapping 122 that day so its making good power. I just need a few more runs to get a feel for the clutch.

    WMI install should be wrapped up tomorrow. Rear seat delete, Braille battery, and summer wheels will be on when I get back out. I'll probably yank the passenger seat as well just to see how fast it will go. So, +40hp and -250lbs... Hopefully 127mph? We'll see.

    This alone will make a nice difference.

    IAT has been killing me. I ended up nearly 80*F over ambient on my second run (I botched the 2 to 3 shift so I only had one clean run). Just keeping temps at ambient should be worth quite a bit of power. How much timing we can throw at it is another question...

    Just heard from the shop... nearly 560whp, uncorrected, with WMI installed Click here to enlarge

    I was expecting solid gains, but not quite that much. An rs3 on e85 that went 127mph was at 497whp on the same Dyno last weekend.
