This whole project originally started because of this... Any idea what part of the motor this is?
So this was supposed to be your run of the mill 06a rebuild… new rings, bearings and some stronger rods, add a larger turbo, possibly an eliminator kit and be on my merry way… well, not anymore. After sending the block to the machine shop for a rehone, it was apparent that the wear in the cylinder walls was going to require an overbore. And as many of you know, the cost of overbore pistons are roughly equal to the cost of stroker pistons, and that’s where it all went down hill…
So 400 whp is my new goal.
All right, let the fun begin...
The current plan is to Bore and stroke the motor out to 2008cc…
I got all of my rotating assembly this week from Joe @ Axis Motorsports who I highly recommend. That includes Supertech 83mm stroker pistons w/ 8.9:1 compression, Scat 144mm/20mm Rods, Forged 2.0 FSI 92.8mm crankshaft, SB Stage IV Clutch/Pressure Plate/SM Flywheel. I dropped everything off including my block and cylinder head at D&D's, my local machine shop.
The machine shop will be balancing the entire rotating assembly, rebuilding the head and boring the block. And just for good measure, I rented one of IE’s torque plates for the final hone to get everything perfect.
I have chosen to keep the AWM (small port) casting. I have purchased Supertech nitride coated SS intake valves; inconel exhaust valves and the full high lift spring kit with titanium retainers. Again, I got all of this thru Axis Motorsports. I plan to run the 3652 CAT camshafts… however this detail is still undecided. I may start with the stock cams and add the 52’s later.
Edit - looks like the 52's aren't for me... too much low end loss, meant to be spun way high. I have decided on running a set of custom "Purple" cams from QEDpower.com. Here's to maximizing the area under the curve!!!
I will be running a GT3076R turbo (4in cold inlet//.82 A/R T3 with 4-bolt T31 outlet), SPA manifold, 034's 3" down pipe and v-band adapter (034), and Tial 38mm black 0.9Bar external waste gate.
I have yet to determine this… however, I am starting to sway toward the Eurodyne tuning suite. ON a side note, since I have an 01, my ECU (Motronic ME 7.1) can be tweaked by some tuners.
The deciding factor here is support. I’d like to put the car on a dyno and have it tuned once finished, however i’m in Cincinnati and 4 wheel dynos are not very close to me. So basically the shop I decide to take it to will determine my software setup. This is something I need to determine soon because that will also determine my intake plumbing (i.e. MAF versus MAF-less)
Edit - Decision made! I will be running Eurodyne w/ Meastro Tuning Suite. SAHWEETTTTT!!!!!
I have a set of new 630cc Dekka injectors, a Walbro in-line pump, Adjustable FPR.
Edit - sold the Walbro inline and upgrade to 034's drop-in Bosch 044 pump. This provides me a cleaner install without having to splice into the factory fuel lines and fuel pump harness.
I will also be changing the 630cc injectors to 1000cc injectors to assist in future fuel delivery at high RPM and boost levels
The 034 Motorsports B5 kit. I'm just going to have to fabricate the hot side plumbing for my setup.
I will add more pictures and developments as the project evolves.
I’d love your comments, suggestions, and/or recommendations… or just your prayers!
