Default How to make an AHF go faster!

Hi all.

I'm new to the forum, so go easy haha.

I've just started reconditioning an AHF engine and would like to know what to put on the shopping list to get 200bhp out of it.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply!

GTD1752VRK looks lush but it's abit out of my price range. I was thinking along the lines of hybridising a pd130 turbo, would that be any good?

As for the cam, can recommend one?

I would always choose a newer generation turbo where possible. GTD > GTC > GTB > GTA > GT. For excellent spool, GTC1549VZ (very cheap in the UK); else GTB1752V (found in the 174 HP R5 TDI.

IMO going to a GTx20V frame size sacrifices more low-rev response than I'd personally like but will become necessary past say 230 HP.

For the cam, I'm biased toward NPS's, else Dbilas 240/250, keep it mild if you're not doing any head porting. Can't speak for Newman and Piper but some like them and they are both in the UK. If you have more fabrication/customisation skills than money, you could adapt a petrol 2.0 Mk3 ABA (048 109 101D) or 050 109 101 A cam.

Edit: @mk1-83: If you're selling more than your private holdings, you need to register as a vendor.

I had an AFN engine VP110 with GTB1752VL from Renault Master 2.5 dCi with 0.280 DSSr nozzles and 11mm pump and it was already a really interesting little beast on the road

Hi guys, thanks for the info!

So - I picked up a GTB1752V for a good price and was thinking it'll need a custom manifold, is that right?
Also went for Darkside Developments cams and lifters, and have a set of .280 nozzles on order.

A couple more questions, if I may..

a) I'm going to keep the mk4 golf gearbox that came with the engine, any recommendations for an uprated clutch?
b) Do waste gates and/or dump valves work on TDIs?

Thanks for all your input, really appreciate it.

Also - which models have 11mm fuel pumps and are they plug and play? Or do I need to change other bits to get one in and working?

Thanks

Anybody that says big turbos are bad hasn't tried one.

Hey GMO, cheers for your reply.

Plan is to keep the mk4 gearbox and put it in with a Vr clutch.
What do mean by dmf or smf?
Planning to get a custom rolling road map so I can get a good balance between power and economy.

Know any about headbolts? I've read that they need uprating if the power goes past 150hp?

For your knowledge:

DMF: dual mass flywheel
SMF: single mass flywheel
