UPDATE !!! - Dyno day GTG?
« Reply #120 on: March 17, 2005, 04:36:11 PM »
I'm working on a new CAI of my car. I don't know if it'll be done in time for the dyno day. But it might be an interesting thing to see the before and after HP numbers for this mod.

ABD just released their version of a CAI for the 1.8T Passat/A4 and it looks very nice. So nice in fact that I'm trying to copy it. I have the filter already and am waiting on the 3" diameter pipes from JCWhitney.com to arrive. And the actual hardest part of this whole mod is mostly done and waiting to have it's finishing touches put on. The heat shield. It's HUGE! and covers more area than most sold by aftermarket manufactures. Also, this design will incorporate as much of the factory parts as I can. Including the stock air feed tube and the plastic cover over the top of the airbox. I just want it to look stockish at first glace.

Here's the ABD offering.



Here's a few pics of the heat shield sitting in it's spot.

Rusty - you break my heart, but I understand.

All the above changes are noted and there are three spots open.  3:00, 5:30 and 6:00.

As for events after, what do we want to do?  I am not sure how many of you are planning on hanging out (I will be there all day) but we can plan to meet later in the evening if that is what people want.


I won't be hanging out...my parents are in town and we have alternate plans so I'll be showing up, dynoing and leaving again.

Chas, looks nice, but we have a forum titled, "Modifications."  :wink:

I just got on a roll with it. I didn't want to put it in there just yet as there really isn't much more to see just right now.  :)

No I didn't say your Passat was badly tuned. I said that Mazda you used to have/still have was badly tuned.

I would never knock your car man. Maybe in jest, but never for real. :D

Why aren't they doing this in JR's car? Something tells me they are and he's just not telling us the full truth. Or maybe he doesn't know any better. Did you ever see the POS Mazda he used to drive? A badly tuned,loping idle Passat would feel like sailing on glass smooth water compaired to that wreak!


Tsk tsk...it's what you implied :wink: But we shall see how "badly tuned" it might be a week from Saturday.

Mismatched Spoiler? You're just gelous that you don't have one that is even badly painted!

And I think you laid down a challenge in the way of this offering:

I guess we will see how many ponies we each put out. I know where my money is going... :wink:  8)  :lol:

And now for sure I'm going to be putting that LW crank pulley on. Just a little insurance. Well, that and I spent $200 for the stupid thing. I should have put it on a long time ago.  :roll:

I have a feeling that the results from Saturday's Dyno day are going to start more controversy then they will end. :roll:

But just the same it will be a kick in the shorts :!:

You know JR, I think you're taking this all in the wrong way. It seems that you are really pissed at me, so I'm going to stop right now even though you have said some fairly inflamitory things.  :?

Hmm...can't take the heat. ;) I'm not pissed about anything...doggone typed forums...can't hear voice inflections.
I didn't mean to offend you or 'cause anything to burst into flames. Sooooo...

From experience, his Zender matches his car. Chas seems to think that there's too much blue, but I couldn't see any difference. Also, the aluminum in his car is very well-crafted a nice looking aluminum that I must say improves the performance of the car where used, namely suspension, engine bay and front bumper.

His car employs numerous handsome mods from HID headlamps to removed resonator in the muffler. His lightweight crank pulley is indeed a long time in coming as I remember the original replacement being last Feburary durning the timing belt changeover.

With that said, my injectors don't make my car idle funny in anyway. I have noticed some issues when the car is cold, but not at idle, but the disappear once the car is adequately warmed up. My Passat maybe badly tuned, but I really have anything that needs to be "tuned."

And we shall how well we all do come a week from Saturday. Now that the fight is duely broken up, I'm going to go pick a fight somewhere else. :D

Randy, you crack me up.

However, Chas is one of the orginal founding outlaws of RMCB5. I feel like we're running him off. This club is brotherhood with the occasional razzing. I didn't mean to start anything...I was just playing :?

No worries, I am sure you would have just embarrased us all. :lol:

Next step will be for me to hit you up on the email dyno and see what those numbers look like compared to what I get on Saturday.

Randy, maybe we could ask everyone who is coming to do a little printed sheet of all the mods they have done to their cars and put it up in the window for all to see. Sometimes the mods we do to our cars aren't that noticeable. It might be fun for other to see and compair what other folks have.

Just an idea I had today while driving around...  :roll:

I think that is an excellent idea!  DV's and injectors are examples of mods that are not "visable" but have an inpact.  As do things like Big Brakes and aftermarket rotors - weight of these effect power to the wheels.

So to all who are comming - list of mods in the window of your car, please.
