View Full Version : Full GT28RS setup ideas

I'm putting together a big turbo package (isn't everyone lately?) and had a few questions. I've done quite a bit of searching, and now I'm looking for opinions on certain things:

The basic setup:
ATP GT28RS w/ H/W Kit (http://www.atpturbo.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=ATP-VVW-124)
CTapp Tune
FMIC
Custom Magnaflow exhaust
etc.

Seeing as how the test pipe is 3", will I be best off running a complete 3" exhaust? Just looking for what would work best. I'm thinking on a bigger setup like this, 3" is probably the way to go. Also, the intercooler. 3" inlet and outlet? Is 3" necessary? I would really like to keep the stock A4 front bumper, and I realize this will require a decent amount of cutting. What is the largest size intercooler that you guys have been able to fit behind it? Also, I know I'm a tiptronic. I know this isn't really done very often on tiptronics. I've read about replacing the torque converter, but I have not found much info on what people have been using(somewhere around 3300 stall sound about right?), or would a Tip Chip help in a setup like this? Thanks In advance!![:D]

You can run a 2.5, 2.75, or 3 inch exhaust. Best results will be with the larger two. It is well known that ATP's parts have some fitment issues. Unless you are equipped to make the necessary modifications yourself you'll be better off purchasing higher quality parts from the beginning. Give 034 Motorsport a call. They just released an very nice looking 3" exhaust with options for two mufflers and a downpipe with or without a race cat. I'd go with their exhaust manifold, the catted downpipe, and the two muffler exhaust.

actually, i think the kit he posted was the full 28rs kit with new manifold, not the eliminator kit.

3" is what you want, because you may want to go even bigger down the line, and it's one less thing you will need to upgrade.

make sure you specify it's NOT the eliminator when ordering software, because there may be a difference.

jlien08
11-01-2007, 09:01 AM
Yeah, it's not the eliminator. It's the full kit. Should I be worried about the ATP manifold with this kit? i know ATP isn't known for the best quality castings... Also, I thought I read a thread a while ago that said 034 was using the ATP castings? could have been a myth, just throwing it out there.

I think what I'll be doing is having a local muffler shop install the exhaust. I can't fathom spending anywhere near $800-$1k on exhaust. I should be safe with this kit on stock internals while keeping the boost under 20psi, correct? At least that's what I've been told... What about Intercooler diameter piping? is it necessary to run 3"? The TIP is 3"... Thanks for the advice!!


edit: Also, ATP had an option to switch out the test pipe for a High flow cat, I may go that route.

bump... any other words on intercooler or manifold?

onemoremile

The ATP and 034 exhaust manifolds are different. The 034 unit has approximately twice the flow. It doesn't really matter since both of those manifolds are for K04 or Eliminators.

Intercooler piping should be down in the 2.5" range. It depends on the intercooler too.

What are the options for exhaust manifolds for the GT28RS? I know 034 has the tubular mani for 800 or 900- then theres the ATP one that's known to be a PITA.

Well you could always go full-race manifold with a GT28rs on it. Only problem is that you wouldn't be able to run a stock air box.


If anyone is interested in Full-race products let me know, going to be come one of their dealers for their full product line at discounted prices.

He wouldnt be running a stock airbox either way w/ the full atp kit.

Seems like you know what you need. I hate my ATP manifold b/c the bolts back out off of the turbo every few days if your tune isnt 100% efficient.

Installation of the mani was a bitch but i must say its a tough manifold. I bought mine used, beat the hell out of it , engine rocks plenty bc of my unadjusted setup and it is still yet to crack, etc. With that being said, it brings me to the subject of the tapp tune.

You arent going to get a perfect setup right away, but in the end it will be worth it.

Dont forget that youll need a 3bar or Adjustable fpr and gauge. Dont sweat the FMIC right away if money is very tight. (which was the case for me) It ran great until the stock smic was heatsoaked, and that didnt take very long but lasted a few pulls.

Again, the tapp tune requires a bit of extra attention and adjusting after initial installation (im running pig rich)

Its a fun setup and worth it , untuned and w/o a fmic, I pulled on a stg2 srt4 and modded evo but i didnt want to push her too hard being stock and not at full potential.

The tapp tune I opted for came w/ the option for a race gas file. Make sure you get the meth file instead of race gas file as an alternate. I find it much more worth it in the long run


Edit: Your tiptronic? O man, idk how thats gonna hold up for you....

Bwahaha.... It should be fun. Well, interesting anyway. I'm up for giving it a try. Thanks for all the help guys.

I'm planning on doing this piece by piece over the winter. Ideally, I'll have the major components in place by March. This car is no longer a daily driver, so I'm not needing to rush it.

About the mani: I guess I'm a little confused now. I'm not hell bent on the ATP setup from my first post (http://www.atpturbo.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=ATP-VVW-124), but it looks like a good, all around kit. Rosati, is this the same mani your running?

Currently I've got an EvoMS CAI, stock air box is out.

1fish2fish Thanks for the offer, I just may take you up on that in a few months..[:D]

That looks like a really nice tubular mani, but for 1300.00 it's just a little out of my price range...........

I guess you missed the "discounted prices". The $1300 is the retail price on that manifold.


Here are some pics I took at the full race booth while at sema, this shows why their manifold sells at that price.

I cant really tell from that pic, but Id assume they sell their own manifold w/ their kit.

Here are some pics of the setup:

I love the atp manifold in the sense that it keeps the turbos higher up in the engine bay compared to the APR or pes, etc.

Full race mani would be sick, but all in good time.

I hope you really go through w/ this , there arent enough guys w/ this setup around, its a real kick ass setup for the price.

When the time comes, You will need to bend a 13mm wrench to get the ATP mani on. You can always pm me or IM me for any help.


The only problem w/ the chris tapp software is that i dont have the handsome engine bay anymore :(

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v673/Rosati/07-25-07_1958.jpg

To utilize the 90mm maf that the tune calls for, it needs a straight section, so i had to that, or you can run it underneath the turbo.... I may switch to that setup later on.

jlien08
11-05-2007, 10:58 AM
That's got to be the same mani.

What FPR are you running?

Oh, I'm definitely doing this, I just can't guarantee how long it will take me to finish... it's not often my wife actually encourages me to spend this much money on a car, lol.

Why would it confuse people? The display says it is for AUDI/VW 1.8t, pictures of my car were used to just show one of their manifolds in a car. Lets not forget that this was SEMA not some car show open to the public, so nearly every person asking about the manifold isn't some less then avg car owner. I guess they didn't have enough room to add "longitude" along with that "transvers" at the top of the board. It would have been better if they left that out and just said "fitments for all 1.8t Audi/VW engines".

Hey Mike you might know about this what makes a manifold fit a transverse engine but not a longitudinal? I dont understand how it could be different

and also, what turbo is that on their manifold in the picture?

onemoremile
11-07-2007, 11:27 AM
Fitting a turbo between and engine and firewall is different than fitting it between an engine and frame rail. This isn't a big issue with log manifolds and small turbos but when you get to tubular manifolds, large turbo housings, and fat downpipes it is. The longitudinal manifold has to carefully position the turbo so that a proper intake can be fabricated as well.

probably a little too late to chime in, but just for a few more threads to read through, here's my setup which I love and have had very few problems with (aside from the aforementioned mani bolts backing out). My approach was pretty much against the grain with regards to the plumbing, but it has never given me a single problem.

apparently the correct answer is to not use the ATP mani. I've thought about taring it apart this winter and doing some sort of safety wire setup for all the studs/nuts in the entire system - onemoremile suggested I look into alternative safety fasteners - I have yet to look any further.

I figure if I can pull it all apart, fasten up all the studs/nuts once and for all, my system will be rock solid.

<<edit>> btw, to clarify, the studs/nuts from the head to the mani have never backed out on my setup. I've had two instances where other studs/nuts/bolts backed out. One time, the nuts from the mani to the turbo backed out. the other time it was the bolts from the exhaust side of the turbo the the downpipe were the ones that backed out.

jlien08
11-08-2007, 09:29 AM
I was thinking that might be the answer... I'd like to stay away from it, but right now it will have to do... I do like the 034 mani, and those tubular full-race mani's are definitely sexy, but it will have to wait!

My manifold to turbo bolts back out, not the actual mani bolts.


I heard that the only way to stop this is to carve channels into the studs themselves, but like most, I am yet to try it.


It is quite annoying , I have to tighten them every two days or so and makes a BIG difference in power and spool time.

Snapr, Did you ever install your EBC?

oh damn! mine backed out once, I cranked on them and it's never done it since.

yeah, I did. It's been in for a while now. Sadly, I have never done any logs [:(] All my time has been devoted to the race rado - she's put away for the winter, so now I need to give some love to the wagon.

Stage 8 locking header bolts are what you need. Great on the turbo too. They come in a couple configurations designed to fit different surroundings.

jim, is it safe to assume that they have something like this in a nut version? there's that whole argument about studs/nuts being a better clamping solution vs. bolts.

<<edit>> never mind - jojo, you don't need to respond

Summit carries most of what we would need: http://store.summitracing.com/sitemap2.asp?N=700+115+400197

<<<edit>>> before anyone runs out and picks these up, there might be some clearance issues with the little tear drop thing that surrounds the nut/bolt. the nuts and bolts of the full GT28rs setup have little to no room - not even enough room to get a socket around the the hex of a nut/bolt, so these may not be an option. I'll have to look at my setup one of these days and see if it can work.

I was just going to bring this point up. We can probably fit one or two locking rings on this turbo. (left side)

To reapply the right side bolts, i had to dremel the actual stud for clearance to get the bolt in.

Check their site, they also have 2 other types of fasteners that may benefit us

Perhaps maybe the spindle system will benefit us http://stage8.com/spindlesystem.html

ARP also has a stud nut combo, but the 12 point nut requires a socket, which just won't fit clearance wise. While these all look like possible fixes, nothing aside from going to a bolt and nut and or a mani that doesn't mount to the turbo parralel to the ground. APR is having issues with the studs backing out as well and has started to send out a special glue/sealant, it worked well for a hot second and then faded/burnt off. The heat, the vibration and parralel stud to ground is inherently going to cause things to back out and or nuts to walk off.

audisnapr
11-09-2007, 12:22 PM
there are three locations in ATP's setup that need to be addressed...

1. head -to- mani
2. mani -to- turbo
3. turbo exhaust -to- vband flange adapter

correct me if I'm wrong but the hardware is as follows

1. studs/nuts
2. studs/nuts
3. bolts

No. 3 would be an easy fix without removing the entire assembly. No. 1 & 2 there is no way to replace some of the hardware because its inaccessible (obviousily for jlien, this is a non issue)

I can see replacing No. 2 with Stage8 bolts, but I'm def. leary of replacing all of No. 1 with these bolts. Seems like it would be a lot easier to strip the threads in the alum. head when tightening a bolt vs. tightening a nut onto a stud.

If No. 2 & 3 became Stage8 bolts, but No. 1 became Stag8 nuts, the only issue of something backing out would be the studs from the head; which I have never seen.

Sorry guys, just thinking out loud. No real point to my post.

haha - coming from a man that is having problems of his own and tightens turbo bolts every other day - wow you must be in love! [up]

btw, jlien - I'm sure you realize, but these are just preventative measures and are not required. these stage8 bolts won't be cheap and when all is said and done - prob. a good $100/worth for a complete set. But if you want to avoid this issue down the road, either use a crap load of thread lock, be prepared and have a 12mm wrench in your in-car tool kit, or upgade the hardware [;)]

lol, actually I'm really interested in all of this. Hopefully it will save me time and money learning from all your experiences. The more we get into it, the more money is added to making the mani a non-issue, which makes some of the other mani's seem not-so-far-off in price!! One of these days I think I'm going to call 034 and see what kind of comparable package they might be able to put together for me. My biggest problem is still going to be the tranny improvements!

034 doesn't have anything at the present. I went back and forth with Javad and Christain about this last week in email and on the phone. They have a new locking nut retainer, but on for 10mm studs and won't be doing it for 8mm. You can use these though http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3528556 Looks like it may help. To be honest I'd think long and hard about the ATP. Even having the 12mm wrench in the car at all times doesn't help. If you do use it NO GASKETS!!!!!!!! Lots of thread lock and grab the orange permatex sealant for high heat (1600* kind).

I dumped the ATP mani after a whooping 3.2K miles! Switched to a tubular XS power should be running on the car by next wed) that uses BOLTS and NUTS and allows me to use a wrentch and socket with plenty o clearance to torque em tight!

jlien08

Yeah, I meant a turbo kit from 034, in place of the ATP kit. Something with a better mani from the get-go. what did the new tubular mani run you?


034 doesn't have anything at the present. I went back and forth with Javad and Christain about this last week in email and on the phone. They have a new locking nut retainer, but on for 10mm studs and won't be doing it for 8mm. You can use these though http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3528556 Looks like it may help. To be honest I'd think long and hard about the ATP. Even having the 12mm wrench in the car at all times doesn't help. If you do use it NO GASKETS!!!!!!!! Lots of thread lock and grab the orange permatex sealant for high heat (1600* kind).

I dumped the ATP mani after a whooping 3.2K miles! Switched to a tubular XS power should be running on the car by next wed) that uses BOLTS and NUTS and allows me to use a wrentch and socket with plenty o clearance to torque em tight!

the simple solution is not to use the manifold bolts as load bearing bolts and add a brace.

thats my mechanical engineering opinion, likely to be ignored [:D]

You took time out of your life to type "search" what a waste! BTW i did search and my conclusion is that aside from the GTRS all u NEED is Injectors, and programming. Of course that alone wont get you to the 300whp mark. Correct me if im wrong.

Most BT tuning kits that I've seen include the injectors the tune is made for.
