Mk5 General Area / Re: GTi Mk5 or Mk6 as a race car?
« Last post by bricksnmortar on Today at 10:02:36 AM Started by bricksnmortar  »
Hi Neil,
thanks for the reply, unfortunately the Ed30 and Ed35 both put me over the power to weight ratio for the class so I need to start with a bog standard Mk5 or Mk6 as the base. It does appear that the chain tensioner has been solved and I'm happy to check it fairly often. The pistonheads page is a good explanation of the differences.
On APRs website it shows the following

Mk6

APR Stage II w/ Intake and Downpipe   93 AKI   98 RON   278 HP   341 FT-LBS

Mk5

APR Stage 2+ w/ HPFP, Downpipe and Intake   93 AKI   98 RON   285 HP   321 FT-LBS

It's just a screw so will turn to back off.
I've been looking for a replacement also as mine is perished but im going to use one on a mk2 as ebay specials are dodge and might not not work.

Performance Modifications / Re: VWR Intake disappointing
« Last post by csrigo on Today at 01:47:49 AM Started by 99hagued  »
The car really does drive so much better the closer to zero the LTFT is. Mine currently sits/fluctuates between +-1.5% of Zero, depending on driving style and whether the WMI is in use, and the difference is night and day over the old RamAir which used to sit at around +12-14%

It feels like it did with the factory airbox low in the RPM range, but with the gains of a free flowing intake at the top end.

Hopefully the revised part from VWR will get you guys close

Took my LTFT values and were at 10%....horrible. I'm going to reprofile the maf sensor orrafice like @Pudding and see if I can bring it down any...I would be delighted with your trim values with non standard intake mate very impressive...good to know it shld drive better.

That waviness looks like the ECU messing with the fuelling and/or timing.  Shame most dynos in the UK don’t measure lambda during the power run like they do in America.
If the MAF isn’t sealed properly, or if the scaling is off, that could be a cause. Or maybe the intake/egt temps were getting hot.

£450 is good value for -8hp and +19lbft 😂  Only kidding! I’m sure it will improve once the new intake is ready.

Lol I know mate i did have a wee chuckle myself. Not too fussed tbh it was a necessary evil since I've caved and I'm going the TTE420 route....may need to put it off tho for a bit since this torque steer with the spacers is doing my head in may need to use the cash for a diff first I'm leaning towards...but that's another topic.

Mk5 General Area / Re: Which stereo?

Hopefully it does the job. Otherwise its a good unit and makes the dash look much nicer. Only complaint i have is the screen does suffer from glare somewhat- although window tint would see to that. I also cant find anyway to autodim the screen when the lights turn on. Ive looked through the settings, is there something im missing?

Mk5 General Area / ARB Size
« Last post by MIJ_JAGGER on Yesterday at 09:50:50 PM Started by MIJ_JAGGER  »
Anyone know what the anti roll bar size is on a MK5 Gti DSG?

The bracket that holds the bushing has snapped on mine and apparently can’t buy the brackets by themselves. Looking to get a whole arb instead.

Ps if anyone has one for sale with brackets and bushings then please holler, needs to be in good nick

Cheers

Hope your right. And that they actually come through with it.
Mines only been on a few weeks, and I’m not very impressed.

I've checked ETKA and that's the same part number for the whip aerial of basic antennas (without the shark fin bit).  :wink:

I only saw another part number there but for the Mexican version of the shark fin antenna with the whip aerial: 1J0 035 849 E.

Mk5 General Area / Re: Advice on worn top mounts

I had a knock, but mine turned out to be rack.

During diagnosis they also checked the subframe bolts as apparently these have a tendency to get loose and cause knocking - something easy to check.
