Re: Need advice from modded guys (MirzS60R)

Umm, I just had a new ACL constructed from two of my hamstring tendons, does that qualify me as a modded guy? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>MirzS60R</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">ok so I am ready to mod the R, this is what I have planned---> for sure<p>Custom Exhaust 3 inch<p></TD></TR></TABLE><p>Just so happens that I'm selling one of only two custom double resonator + magnaflow Svenske full 3" ceramic coated exhausts in existence at half the cost of new...will bolt right up to Evolve DP. IM me if interested.<p>Should know in a week from two sources if BSR is now compatible with DP, preliminary reports are yes. <p>Where are you having your turbo ported?

Re: (MirzS60R)

The BSR will not help as your other mods will change it from stock. Unless you managed to get BSR to do a custom tune, I'd suggest you ask ipd or mte.

If the biggest thing the ECU tune is turn up the boost, then as long as you aren't planning on running more than 19-20 psi, you can take advantage of the softloader capabilities of BSR, or Torque Removal of others. <p>EVOLVE confirmed my belief by saying no diffrerence in results for software tuned for filter/DP/exhaust and not. <p>Now, if you are doing extensive mods, then this probably doesn't hold true. Especially if you wan't boost to go above 19-20. But I didn't think porting a turbo did much but allow it to spin up quicker, is that an "extensive" mod?<p>I would think water injection and maybe FMIC mods would benefit more from custom ECUs, but not an engineer, so I don't know.
