  1. I know this is an old post, but the 997T input shaft is now a proven upgrade. It lenghtens gears 1-3 and also significantly beefs up the 3rd gear. Gbox: http://www.gboxweb.com has many, many external and internal upgrades available. I would start with the ~$60 shift detent which helps engage gears better and helps prevent the dreaded popout issue. I have no affiliation with Gbox BTW.
  2. Does it happen at right around 4500 RPM? If so you need new plugs. A few over boosts and you will foul the plugs. That said, 1.4 BAR seem very high. You are probably running into the factory TB shutdown which is the factory ECU protecting your engine.
  3. Hello All. Long time lurker, infrequent poster. I have owned my TT for 4 years now. Picked it up in 06 with 9700 miles and totally stock. It was the realization of lifelong dream. You know the commercial: ...for teh truely afflicted there is decade or two on betweeen" It was originally an X50 and had basic performance mods added over the first 2 years. For comparison sake Here is my car's dyno with the original K24s with exhaust, wastegates and GIAC Flash. This was a dynojet at an independent third party facility and having gone through rounds of mods after this I am CONVINCED that 500 whe
  4. Sounds like they are re-programming your ECU with aftermaket performace software which is fine. That should give you about 480 HP. What he ARE NOT doing is putting in GT2 software. You have smaller turbos which flow differently, but baically the same engine.
  5. I went FVD Pss9s. They will give you smoother cruising and harder handling. The best of both worlds.
  6. I live in CA. I believe we have THE most stringent tests in the country. My car easily passed emission testing WITH all of my mods installed. I'll try and answer everyone's questions. I have an 02 X50 with 11K miles. It is rated at 560HP/TQ. YES, 110HP AND 110 ft/lb more torque. I run 1.2 BAR with spikes seldom to 1.3. Compare this to .8 bar with spiuke to .9 bar stock. Here is a list of the mods: 1. GIAC 91 Octane software with a handheld controller that can return the settings to stock. I do not have the "RACE" program as I don't really care for the extra 20HP/TQ and only put in the
  7. I second the C4s lip. It is thicker material and doesn't flake as easily. The factory aero lip will juts make your problem worse since it sits lower than stock.
  8. Ditto. We (TT, GT3 and GT2) get the GT1 endurance racing engine which is suposed to be head and shoulders more durable than non turbo cars.
  9. In undestand that the stock .6 bar springs tned to "flap" open an closed therefore slowing down boost response. Oveall boost pressure should remain unaffected.
  10. I just ordered a set of brand new Pss9s from FVD for under $2,000
  11. Stock = 400 Same unit as non X50 Most others = 100 Thought to wear out pretty quickly Remus and Tubi = 200 in my mind the best copromise
  12. I think this an emmisions requirement. Does it feel lkike the car is not slowing down as fast as should due to engine braking in gear? Almost as if there is a small amount of throttle built in? If so, we can thank emissions regulation for this issue. Something about the car making less emmission if the throttle is not closed completely.
  13. Most exhausts give you about 40HP increase in the midrange due to quicker spool up of the turbos, The peak power increase is more like 15HP. These figures are for an otherwise stock (non X50 car). I just had a Remus exhaust installed. I find it is the closest to stock (but deeper) under idle and light cruise conditions with an incredible throaty howl at full throttle. There is NO droning when you take your foot off the gas and on downshifts. This exhaust costs 2-3 K less than the competion, is full stainless and performs very well on my 560HP X50 car. It comes with 200 cell cats and will pro
