my plans


PERFUSEME

I have a slate gray 02TT tiptronic that i bought about 9 months ago for $42K. It is absolutely perfect and i got lucky with this one. since i have had it iv driven it about 1750 miles and only plan on about 3000/year. i had an 02 C2 6 speed that i totaled about a year ago. i opted for the beefier tiptronic this time because i knew my HP goals were bigger than stock and i dont want to go through all the clutches or cost associated with. plus, i dont think i can out shift the computer, and missing gears with lots of power can be a big mistake.

my HP goal is to stretch the use of the factory fuel system to just under its ability. if i recall correctly this is about 650ish HP depending on who u talk with. so ultimately id like to see 600-650 HP.

exhaust is first i suppose. having the tip and hearing all the complaints about the drone, i have narrowed choices to the speedtech quiet 2.5 X flow altho id like to run it with cat bypasses. but i must be honest...i dont guess i know what the drone sounds like!! i had fabspeed cat bypass on my C2 and it sounded great, maybe it had drone and i didnt know it! my other choice would be an X design from Markski. i think im ok with stock headers but have entertained the idea of stock extrude hone. guess it depends on the turbos i get too.

regarding turbos, i have the stock k16's and it seems that the 24/18 upgrade and tune is the way to go. seems like i can pick up some good used ones for 12-1500$ and have them upgraded. with this in mind im totally open to other applications but i like the direct bolt on for ease. Markski, i looked at your custom ski 850gt's and like the idea of big power with lower boost. i expect this would preserve my engine internals as well. but the pricing was unclear if this is an upgrade and requires a core.... or is that a purchase price for free and clear turbos?

i think a set of new 900$ or used 600+ GT2 intercoolers oughta do the trick and for the price u cant beat it. i dont mind boost hoses and Y pipe if airflow limits require it, plus they look cool. throttle body and MAFS should be easy enough too if im stressing the limits of stock intake flow, if not leave that stuff alone!

id like to do all this myself, and im pretty handy around a car as i have built a hand full of ford motors. if i have to pay for installation, that pretty well breaks the budget. hince the 02TT!! if my math is correct i can do this for about 8000$ if i buy all new but i dont mind being patient and buying roughly all used (exhaust, IC's, Turbos)and be done around 5500-6500$ these are all plans for next 6 months as id like to collect the parts at get them all on at once. let me know if you guys think this gets me up around 600+ HP

for some reason i cant respond to any of my post on 6speed, so il come over here for a while

thanks for any help!!

Ok so with the tip you can not go more that 500-550whp first of all, if you want to go higher you must reinforce the gearbox.

Go with a 3" exhaust, check out Markski exhaust (911tuning.com)

And if i where in your place I would go with the K16/16g turbos and check the 997.2 intecoolers ;)

right! im expecting 600-650 crank HP, so 475-525 WHP is plenty. i dont want to mess with tranny rebuild for sure, but i dont drive this car much or hard. i actually just bought a single K24 and its in the mail. it was a very good price and supposed to be in very good shape. at first i was a bit hesitant to do injectors....but its fine il do it if it comes to it, but i expect to keep the boost on safe side and should be fine with FPR. id LOVE to do the 3 inch exhaust but i dont want the drone everyone claims. im not sure i even know what it sounds like. either way, we gonna be based on 24/18 it seems. thanks for advice for sure!

It is your choice but you are spending too much money for nothing, k16/16g is what you need for that power and the k16 will spool faster that the k24/18g! who said that the 3" it has drone?

Sell the k24 and do the k16/16g + 5bar fpr + intercoolers + dv's + hoses + intercoolers and if you want the IPD plenum and you will be more that happy!!

Hi Frank! :D
