Re: HA wut is he thinking

Im simply saying turbos are not fully boosted for a good long while into the RPM range.

And knightinwhite86... You dont know what your getting yourself into...

Hopefully you may have worked on one of these before... But VG's a pain in the ass man.

I know first hand!

If your going to tear apart the VG30DE anyways, do this:

Get the: (this list is for all TT components)

-8.5:1 compression ratio pistons
-Oil pan
-Exhaust manifolds, and turbos
-Heads
-Fan, and clutch fan assembly
-Radiator
-Intercooler ducting
-Intake ducting
-MAF
-Injectors
-Boost lines, and miscellanious items
-Crankshaft

It will all fit in nicely, and if you have the facilities, it is the easiest way to go about a NA (Naturally Aspirated) - TT swap... In my opinion.

That is how we did ours.

Note though, it isnt exactly EASY, but if you are mechanically inclined, DO IT!

Here is an AWESOME site on this... We used this as a guide for our project.

Thats a cool site, for a 11g that guy got a pretty good car, but I plan on pushing way more than 400hp, that car would be a nice daily driver
