I am trying to decide what turbo to get for my 90 Tsi AWD. I am leaning towards a Big16G from TRE with all the mods. My car is a daily driver and I want to keep it that way, but be able to run low 12's at the track also. I figure I need 350 HP to the wheels to do that. Here is what I will be supporting the turbo with:
Stock MAS with hacked can, K&N, silencer removed
2.5" downpipe, test pipe, 3" cat back
Dejon upper IC pipe and TB elbow
255 Walboro with 550cc inj. and S-AFC, Greddy Profec B
2g ex. man, TRE ported O2 and maybe their big16G
Do you think this setup will get me what I want with that turbo? Let me know what parts I need that I didnt list already. Thanks
step up the 16g to something bigger. mutt turbos do not require an external wastegate so it would fit into your system. i would personally use a 2g throttle body elbow (which i do) to save you a few bucks unless you want a specific color from dejon. i have seen some awesome times from big 16Gs and 16Gs but if you want to belt out some real horsepower, i would personally go bigger. weight reduction would probably come into play shooting for low 12s on a 16g. also you can make your own intake.
my setup will be quite similar. i have a 16g now i need to put on. i am going with a 2g mas (which i have sitting here) and the dejon inlet which i need to order. 550s and an intercooler of somesort, probably indy street core. and for an o2 im not sure yet. most of my engine mods are listed. i wasnt planning on anywhere near low 12s with this setup. its going to be a street car 100%. hope this helped.
Yeah, I am also looking for around 350 WHP. Have you picked a FMIC yet? I want to get a quality one that can support up to 400hp but I don't want to loose my fog lights or get one that is too heavy. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Holy Crap, i just got an email about a reply to this post, this was for my first DSM which has been sold for like 4 years now lol. If anyone even cares, from what i remember i put a used FP green on it with some random FMIC and an SAFC and went mid 12s on a beat motor. But, so much has changed since 2002 its hard to reccomend that setup to anyone, good luck though
