Hi everyone,

I am going to document my build as best I can (WITH LOTS OF PICTURES) since I am sure there are many people that are curious how my setup is going to perform. I also will update with videos of the car once I get her running. I also plan to hit the track and see what kinds of times I can throw down.

Mods before 034 STK:
Stock downpipes w/gutted pre-cats
UUC VM3 catback
Metal diverters
K/N filter
Jfonz stage 2 tune
H/R street coilovers
Podi mechanical boost gauge
Iforged Flux 2-piece wheels
Everything else stock

On my previous GIAC 93 pump stage 2 tune (w/stock DPs) that I was having over boost/throttle cut issues with (due to failing egts), I put down 295wtq, 265whp on AWE’s dyno.

Upgrade list:
- Precision PT5858 Ball Bearing Turbo, .64AR turbine housing
- Precision 8” x 24” x 3.5” intercooler, rated at 600hp
- 2.5” intercooler piping
- Tial MVR 44mm wastegate
- Tial QR recirc valve, 10psi spring
- 2.8L V6 exhaust manifolds – ceramic coated
- 034 up pipe/downpipe – ceramic coated
- Custom 3.5” 304 SS exhaust, 1 or 2 – 3.5” magnaflow mufflers (rear is removable via V-band)
- Southbend stage 3 drag clutch kit, Fidanza LWFW
- Custom 90mm intake/MAF assembly, OEM Hitachi MAF
- EV14 72lb injectors
- Bosch 044 fuel pump
- Zeitronix wideband/5.0 Bar MAP/EGT multi-gauge and data logging setup
- 034 Motorsport race engine mounts
- 034 Street density transmission mounts
- 034 billet diff carrier and street diff mounts
- USP metal clutch slave w/braided line
- MK3 golf coolant tank
- Custom catch can setup
- DM forged rods, stock pistons/heads/intake manifold/TB for now

Onto the Pictures:

The motor is currently waiting for me to install rods, but that will have to wait till Tuesday after Christmas.... Plan is to have the first start by next weekend! And turns out I need two of the smaller oil pan turbo drain fittings, so Max will need to swap out my larger fitting for a smaller one. Hopefully that doesn't delay me too much....

Contrary to what you believe Mike, we have had lots of people with different sizes.

To make matters even worse, we are finishing up our shop 5858 STK build, which require 2x of the large oil pan adapters. This was the first time we ever have seen two large.

People want to guess, we can guess, and we have seen equal amounts of Small/Small and Small/Large. The forum is a very small sample. The only way to tell is to remove your return lines, which is very easy and avoids you having to ship stuff back.

I guess I need to change my statement... I DID order mine from 034 Hahaha
Not only that but my invoice shows 1 large and 1 small... I don't remember ordering 2 different sizes....
I also blindly installed them on the car and I guess I got them right first time lol

So I guess I have 1 large 1 small.


EDIT: I looked and it's the kit that I ordered, 2 x fittings. Must be 1 small 2 large by default.

Just a little FYI. The wrist pin section of the stock rods weights about 40-50 grams less than the H beam rods.

Looks like he weighed all the rods, and with stock heads and a stock rev limit, there shouldn't be an issue. On our newest STK project car, we dropped in rods without a balance. Keep the pistons numbered and such and you'll likely be just fine. Is balancing everything better? Of course, but once you get there, you might as well go a bit further, and suddenly you've spent $10k on a motor build instead of a couple grand on some rods and bearing refresh.

PS. Props Monty for doing everything yourself.

I agree, with stock valvetrain and close to stock rod weight you should be fine...

I guess I wasn't freaking out just asking :) 33 grams is a decent amount off for sure, but if it works, it works. Seems like the weights are not that close either since the rods place their weight differently as the big end of the new rods is much lighter than the stockers (just going by the statment above about small end weights). I guess what I'm curious to is what the bob weight change would have been for a perfectly balanced stock rod motor vs the H beam rod motor. Whats the reason for numbering the pistons?

I'd be all for a setup like this in the future and I understand keeping machine work to a minimum. Guys were adding eagles(stock rings no hone) without balance work on dsm's/EVO's a lot back in the day with no apparent ill effects. Even my twin turbo z06 has budgit written all over it ;), but I need to finish that before I crack open the S4.

Good luck with the build OP and looking forward to seeing the results/power band from this setup.

If your worried then you could always get a fluidampr. When I had my rotating assy balanced I gave them my stock DMF now I have a FX850, so I opt'd for a fluidampr. I'll be revving to 8500-9k so it's a must IMO.

I don't have an invariable belief either way, I'm just skeptical when every single person that has posted publicly about them has had equal sized, small fittings. A single third party verification would convince me completely, that's why I asked and made a thread previously. Do the 'big' stock fittings visibly look different, or does one need to measure to know if their stock is big/small?

The ports you use will depend on if you are running a mbc in straight, bleed off, or if you are running a ebc in straight or bleed off or if you are running a stock n75 and bleeding off air.

Turbo brace was $80. No I am not running coolant through the wastegate. If I was doing track days (road course) I would but I don't think I need the coolant option for a street car.

Is the coolant port on tial wastegates a fairly new thing? I didn't have that option on turbo SHO build back in 2006 but when I bought my 44mm wastegate for my SHO powered camaro it has coolant ports. 50K on my turbo SHO build and I never had a wastegate issue. should I run coolant lines to the wastegate on my current build? I had never herd of people having wastgate issues so i was really not sure why the coolant was added

The newer 44mm gates have them.
Tial says they "are for people who do a lot of road racing"
In other words if you cyctle the wastegate a lot in a short amount of time the water cooling will help keep it cool.
I doubt anyone here needs to worry about it ;-)

Some people plumb the catch can instead of atmosphere to the intake side pre-turbo, same goes for the third port on the N75 valve. Its really personal preference if you want to or not.

Also, I hope you got a ball bearing turbo not a journal bearing :)

That looks like an oil feed gasket.
The journal and ball bearing oil return use the same gasket.
If you get in a pinch I probably have one.

And you're welcome on the vacuum stuff ;-)

My catch can will be run like that because I'm running Blow Through... ;-)
I'm sure some here will argue otherwise but I have always referenced manifold pressure for my boost control.

btw the experience of most people I know, myself included, running ball bearing vs journal bearing is that the difference is way way smaller than people on the internet like to say. In most cases the extra cost isn't justified purely on spool time ;-)

I understand that the ball bearing chra will not spool "much better". I bought it so that I can run high boost in case I ever went crazy with the motor. I bought the 5858 to hopefully help with that spool issue and I would still like to make some respectably power.


Also can someone tell me if this coolant hose that goes to the coolant fill tank is suppose to get a oring on the bottom hose (when the coolant hose is properly installed). All the other female hoses have a gland on the inside that holds an oring, but this one does not, so how does this thing seal????

If you know a part number for the missing oring a part number would be great too!

I'm not sure on that hose I'll see if my junk motor has one of those hoses on it still...

As for your turbo don't worry t will spool just fine if it's anything like my S256 ;-)

Go Blow Through like me then you can dump :-P hehe

As for the wiring harness mine is tucked under the intake manifold in the back... It hugs over the top rear of the drivers valve cover then goes under the intake in the rear then comes out behind the passenger side head.
But in doing this my VSS wire was too short by an inch so I extended it a little.

Looks like you have your turbo sitting more forward than absolutely necessary, making fitment of the fuel rail a bit more difficult. Remember you can position the turbo fore and aft between the manifold and the false firewall by tightening the top and bottom nuts on the exhaust manifold to merge pipe junction.

Did you see the picture the shows the uppipe flange at about 7mm away from the secondary firewall. The spacing is as good as it going to get. Everything seems to fit fine though.

You'll probably end up with a 3" 90 and then a 3 to 2.5...
Just make sure you only get 4 ply silicone... the parts stores don't tend to carry multi ply couplers... and they just blow apart.

I know it looks messy, that will get taken care of as soon as I know she runs properly!!

Also, I shaved my intake manifold post as much as I could and my injectors still move up and down about 1/8", I suggest to everyone: get that hats and spacers! It's not worth the hassle to shave the fuel rail mounting post and then have the injector still not fully seated..... I will be purchasing the hats and spacers today.

Possibly 4-AN to 1/8 npt?
Not entirely sure what they are using ...

That is what he should have received, a -4AN to 1/8" NPT.

It appears you received a -3AN to 1/8" NPT. For the sake of time, it may be easier to source that locally, and when you get a chance you can drop the wrong fitting in an envelope and we'll give you a credit.

Appreciate the patience as we work through the little kinks.

Have to be careful hydraulic shops might have jic not an. Looks the same but the angle is wrong I think.

"AN fittings are a flare fitting, using 37 flared tubing to form a metal-metal seal. They are similar to other 37 flared fittings, such as JIC fittings, which is their industrial variant. The two are interchangeable in theory, though this is typically not recommended due to the exacting specifications and demands of the aerospace industry. The differences between them relate to thread class (how tight a fit the threads are) and the metals used."

Thanks Max, I also understand that it was a simple mistake with the fitting. It's an easy fix. The most important thing is that all the hot pipes fit perfect! This is a very well made kit and I will recommend it as far a fitment to anyone. Next on the list is to test the performance[evilsmile]

I also ordered my ev14 hats and spacers from 034 today! Also, where is the shop STK car's wiring harness? I need to redo the routing to make it look a little neater....


And was I suppose to recieve fittings for the -6an ss braided hose for my brake booster, because I didn't receive any fittings? I did not see the check valve either...

Latest progress:

I started the car up, drove it out of the garage and backed it into the street yesterday right after work. Then the low oil pressure warning came on and I drove it back into the driveway and parked it. I took the connector off the pressure switch and I have continuity to the connector, so I am going to replace the switch and install and oil pressure gauge today to verify oil pressure. I never touched the oil pump so I didn't think I would have any issues with oil pressure, but now I just want to make sure [wrench]

Finally, out of the garage:

01-09-2013, 10:44 AM
Oil level is perfect. I have only ran the motor for about 5-10min total so far. I would think the ecu would be good by now. I am going to reset my CELs (IAT sensor and coolant level) and install a new oil switch after work and see if the warning comes back. If that fixes it... time for a ride [cool]

So I got my Zeitronix pressure sensor ordered so I can display oil pressure on my gauge. I also plan to install my PPD this weekend so I can get some logs to JFonz shortly.... I am one of the lucky customers of Jfonz to win a free PPD

In case you haven't seen the cool features of STE's PPD, here they are:

- Display Boost, AFR, and other performance data in the cluster driver information display LCD
- Built in MAP sensor capable of reading up to 44 PSI!
- Peak Boost Recall: Boost & RPM.
- AFR run replay - Provides a quick snapshot of your AFR data & RPM from your most recent WOT pass.
- Plug and Play Installation: Each unit comes with built in factory connectors and hand built harnesses for a "Plug and Play' Installation
- (2x) Auxiliary 5v sensor inputs: Can be adapted to display data from various aftermarket sensors such as wideband O2, oil temp, fuel pressure, water/meth flow, etc.
- Automatic Data Logging! - PPD creates a time stamped log with the following data elements every time the driver goes wide open throttle (WOT). The logs can be retrieved at a later date using your computer.
- TPS, RPM, Speed, AFR*, N75 Duty Cyle* Note: Optional external feeds required.
- Programmable Audible Alerts- RPM limit, over boost, etc.
- Performance run monitor: 0-60, F.A.T.S, etc
[U] - Extended capabilities through external add on modules. The following optional add-on module will be available at product launch:
- Plug and Play Micro Shift Warning LED
- Plug and Play integrated N75 electronic boost control provides the following features:
- Complete control over the OEM N75 valve.
- 3 driver definable boost maps (low boost, mid boost, HIGH BOOST)
- Instantly change boost map via menu control stalk (I love this feature!)
- RPM Compensation: Eliminates boost tapering (drop off) at high engine RPM)
- Gear-based Mapping: Adjust your boost based on gear (will be added later via firmware update)
- Factory connectors are provided to facilitate plug and play installation and is designed to KEEP THE ECU HAPPY! (No check engine light related to disconnecting the N75).
- The addition of external modules and upcoming firmware updates will continue to expand the device's capabilities.

I know you have a different bumper but do you think the fogs will fit?

Fogs fitting is dependent on how you route your intercooler piping and where you position your intercooler. I test fit the fogs on mine and they fit with a 45 degree right off the intercooler core, but the way my coworker welded his piping, they do not fit.

If you plan it from the start it shouldn't be a problem, and worst case just dimple the pipe for the corner of the lamp.

Auston. the car drives really well! I am very happy with my base tune. My car will stall when I push the clutch in though. I believe it's due to my primary O2's being screwed up and possibly my LWFL. The Fidanza LWFW/Southbend 6 puck clutch setup drives great as well!!! I have not experienced any noticeable chatter and engagement is not bad at all!

I don't think you can plug them into the secondary sensors can you? They have a square in the corner... plus the colors should give it away haha ;-)

Those codes take 3 starts to show up... see if they come back soon :-)

You need to fire up Vagcom and check the voltages for the sensors... see if they are getting any input.
I believe the actual codes you have are to do with the warm up period of the sensors not being what the ecu is expecting...
I actually get the same code on my simulated narrowband even though they are working perfectly... I believe it's the warmup period and / or resistance.

Let me know if your sensors are bad, I kept my stock sensors I can mail them to you...

Oh, I know. I am glad I have company now, with you two up and running. I just hope none of the unfortunate chain of events happens to you guys, and we all keep them running.

Well I'm on a stock bottom end right now, but I've started to build my 3.0 built motor up :-)
I'll be putting that in when it's Spring time out... that's my goal, 68 days :-)

It sounds awesome. Is the 15psi just for break in?

Yes this is my break-in/base file from Jfonz. I'll try and get some nice driving vidz on my way to church tomorrow.... lots of windy roads[:p]

Love it, that spool looks pretty damn good, I'd love to see some logs showing transient response vs K04's, logs showing time from 0 to 20psi going full throttle at 5500 rpm would be very interesting.

haha sorry man, I'll get some better videos. My clutch only has 150 miles on it. My father has a 1999 procharged Mustang GT and he wants to see how our cars current stack up, so there should be some better videos shortly....

And Maple Grove raceway opens April 28th.... who going to be there????

Are you still at 15psi?

Monty23
01-14-2013, 08:40 AM
Yes, its actually running 16psi tapering to about 14psi by red line if you look at my logs... I will be getting a revision to up the boost once my clutch gets 500+ miles on it... early Feb...

I ran a larger 1/4" line to my tial bov, and now it works much better... no more compressor surge! I know it's not true compressor surge but you know what I mean [:p]

Also got my oil pressure sensor in the mail today!

What do you mean 1/4" line? What were you using before? I use braided steel lines on all that kind of stuff, but were you using a line that was collapsing under vacuum?

Monty23
01-17-2013, 11:40 AM
I stuffed an 1/8" ID line on there because I thought a smaller line would allow the BOV to respond faster (less dead volume), but I was wrong.... 1/4" ID line fit perfect and now the BOV works correctly...

Soooo.....I guess my thread got deleted, but I still wanted the information that got posted in it to be available for others to reference.

So what I got from that thread:

When running pump gas with the stock Hitachi sensor:
80mm MAF housing is good to ~ 400awhp
85mm MAF housing is good to ~ 500awhp
90mm MAF housing is good to ~ 550awhp

Anything more than 550awhp, just upgrade to an HPX Slot style maf sensor (either draw thru or blow thru) to avoid idle/part throttle problems...

I am not even sure I would use the 85mm that far. The only way I have gotten mine to work is by underscaling it A LOT, and I am sure I am no where near 500awhp.

I like that boost ramp up for the single!! 5858 may be the ticket, eh?

YES, if I rev out to 3000 rpm and go WOT, spool is pretty much instant imo... and I'm sure it will get better when some timing gets thrown in there...

Definitely... Sounds great too. How much boost was it running in the videos where you hold out the gear?

As far as power, I always want the car to be DD status (even though it will most likely be a weekend warrior) so we will see what Josh is comfortable with as far as aggressiveness of the tune.... and we will see what the butt dyno says ;) 3 more weeks till my final tune!!! I have 500+ miles on the car and she is running great!

I will be going to a local dyno day in early April at R/T Tuning in Lansdale, Pa. So we will get some numbers and there is usually a large turn out so we should have a nice pool of cars to compare mine to power wise....

Also, my car was stalling a lot after I would press the clutch in, turns out I just needed to recirculate my BOV.... And now drives perfect!!! (Sorry, I forgot to take pictures of the finished intake tube)

I drive through New York to go to lake Sacandaga in the Adirondack Mountains every labor day weekend... maybe we can meet up this year for bit ;)

Maybe Britishturbo will join and we can be the "Silver Single Turbo S4 Trio" lmao
