Just ran a 5.66 caps after fixing my boosting issues and running rich issues. =) Car hauls ass now.

My car runs a little lean at redline so I'll turn up my fuel pressure some more.

On a side note, what is peoples sampling rates on their b5s? Mine seems very slow. I'm using an ebay cable though

aren't the MAF readings a little low for pc-16? i get similar readings with my k03.. and the BTDC [eek] !!!!

but damn, that thing must be a fun ride

I think its reading lower because of the colder weather. What should the BTDC look like? Not sure if my maf is on its way out or not. In the summer i pulled lik 190ish.

umm am i wrong here but the AEB maf maxes out at around 187. you will never see a maf reading higher than that on an AEB.

im 99.9% sure of this.

btw, thats a pretty rediculously fast CAPS time. i think its the fastest K04 to date.

Damn that is pretty fast. How much boost are you running?

^ yea it's quick right? he's running faster caps than some Stg 3 cars on the caps chart. good job Poop!!!!

btw, if you don't mind, I prefer calling you "POOP". It's just a bit more masculine than "poopie". hahahaa

haha you can call my poop or poopster. I'm running whatever the pc-16 is set up for. Spikes around 20-21. Spikes 16-17 in freezing temps.

That would be correct.


94jedi - this is because the CAPS rpm range is in the K04's favor vs any other larger turbo that makes more power.

Yeah....the PC16 set up still wont be anywhere near APR Stage 3...PES...and of course a HB set up.

then i better get my log a done and submitted for caps time.
see how my PC16 compares. POOP if your gonna bump up the fuel....disconnect the negative terminal for like 2-3hrs to have it reset. the 3mins or 20 minutes never worked for me. ECU was just pull off anything i was adding. it took a good 2-3 reset for it to work for me.

good time by the way!

DAMN! never knew i had to reset my ECU for fuel pressure changes. No wonder when I made changes my o2 sensor voltages never changed. Thanks for the tip!

Yeah the k04 pulls in just the right range for the CAPS. The top end sucks with the tiny ass turbo though.

Guys...its no doubt poopie has a rediculously fast K04 that is running well. A CAPs time is real life...from about 40-80mph 3rd gear, Poopie's car would own eveyone with CAPs higher than 5.66.

Anyway here's a reality check, look at the comments section of the BT cars with times greater than 5.66. All of them had issues or were Tips. You have about 5-6 BTs there...then the K04 section starts.

(sort the list by clicking on the headers...highlight a row by clicking on it)

The k04 is definantly not int he BT range. They are easily 50 whp over my set up. I think a can squeeze a bit more out of my turbo. I think a highflow cat or test pipe will help me on the top end. Maybe I should just go BT eliminator =). I also have a lwft and clutch needing to be installed.

Only problem is that once both cars get into 4th gear the K04 is going to get passed with no problem, this is because the K04 will be out its power band most of the time. Yes the K04 will pull on the BT at first when running from 3800 but in a real race no one is going to start that low. It is really hard to look at the caps run as "real life" seeing that it is only a 40mph pull. Allow the BT setups to run in their power band and the Caps times will shift into the BT's favor.

we've had this discussion and we disagree :)

No doubt... A GT35r powered A4 starting @ 3800 RPM may have a slower caps time than a chipped kO3.........LOL

Anyone racing from 3800 shouldn't be racing.[:p]

sorting the CAPS logs by time is making me think that a 71r elim is enough power seeing as the only thing beating them is mikes 2.0L.. but of coarse, like you guys are saying, CAPS is not a true measurement of real world power

actually it is. the proof is in the data. sort the chart...BTs are at the top of the list, followed by K04s followed by chipped K03s and each transistion has some overlap, which is to be expected.

Faster cars are FASTER. The CAPS database correlates very well with horsepower.

Here, I went throught the effort of putting this information visually. I sorted the chart by turbo, then divided the data into three parts...K03, K04 and BT (all turbos > k04).

Note how 90% of the BTs are faster than the K04s.
and 99% of the K04s are faster than the K03s.

This is all from the CAPS database...all weather conditions...all cars...all software...all setups.

I hope this puts the controversy to bed.
