At what RPM do you see full boost and do you feel like it's laggy until then or does it pull right out of the gate?

There will be dyno time in this car's future. I'm thinking it can make 24psi safely and keep it there quite high in the RPM range. It's almost like a stock TDI up to 2000 rpm, then it comes unglued - gets to 20PSI real fast, and takes off. I think the bigger nozzles will also change the spool characteristics.

Don't let my situation scare you too much

I think 20psi by 2000rpm is probably safe. I was doing 25psi by 2000rpm and prior had spikes even higher by 2000rpm.

I still don't cruise around above 75 mph for long or flog the brakes though - so maybe the MPG makes sense. The lifetime average for the 12,000 miles since the swap is still over 60mpg.
VERY impressive
Id love to see what kind of Dyno numbers your getting with this set up.
60mpg and fun as hell to drive.. I frigging love TDIs

No - much better deal.

Just needs a timing belt - due right now. I suppose I will need to do that before they start driving it...



The trip down to get it was rather exciting - we drove it to Temecula Friday night (500 miles) after work. We ran into some heavy wind and rain going down 5 and then got into a bit of a snowstorm over the Grapevine. We barely made it before they closed the road:

L.A. Times:Snow forces closure of Interstate 5 over the Grapevine

Saturday morning we accomplished our goal - get my mom her first TDI. We then drove the 500 miles back home.

And the weekend didn't end after that 1,000+ miles in the GTI TDI...

Sunday was great - My wife and I attended the Niello ranch run for the first time - over 400 VW's showed up!

2012 Niello Ranch Run - April 13-15 - Sacramento, CA




And we got stuck in the mud there... here is the mess:


I guess I need to resurrect the lifted TDI monster...

Hell yeah Mk4 shift linkage conversion!

I need to drive this thing some time... You're making me want to do a Mk2 TDI now!

My other thought is a TDI-powered Porsche 944 using one of these: http://shopping.boraparts.com/produc...roducts_id=690



Though, for emissions reasons, I may have to swap a 1Z into it first, get it approved by a referee, then tear it all back out to install this motor...

The 55+ MPG is particularly awesome considering the setup and how you drive

Got to the grapevine hours later than you, they closed it. :-(

Had to drive around through Mojave & Palmdale.

Your mileage is insane!

And yeah - the MK4 shift linkage is WAY BETTER than the old Corrado box it had before!

And that 16V PD would be sweet in anything - especially a 944! - and don't you dare take it to a referee - that's a good way to get screwed into a very long worthless process. If you go back into my original swap thread - I describe in great detail how to fill out the REG256 (Statement of Facts) form and have the DMV fix the title.

And I am surprised by the MPG myself - though I don't tend to spend a ton of time cruising at high speed... I only do it in bursts for fun. I'm also trying to make my brakes last until I get the Boxster over 300x25 on VR setup done and installed... I'm sure this is good for MPG.

I vote MKII Simplest conversion - most useful on a daily basis - TONS of parts bolt right on to make it unbelievably awesome... Rallye bits, MK3 bits...

Update:

Recieved the Titan 764 Injectors from Frank Saturday - Fixed the damaged insulation on the 3rd injector and installed them Tuesday. It's got a bit more power now - but has a bit of a shudder that improved slightly when I bumped the IQ from 2.0 to 3.2. This video is with the IQ at 2.0 it is now at 3.2 and there is no smoke.
