I had my tune upgraded at TDIFest, and ever since then my mileage has been even better. No idea how it's even possible because Mark upped the fueling in the tune, but the numbers don't lie. I'm not complaining thoughI lost 1-2mpg but thats probably associated with the hot stage III tune I'm running.
Yukon and I are at 3.5++ or something like that. Its real smooth. I also notice light chatter/shudder in 6th if it gets bogged down but 5th is the remedy. Other than that its now scary fast for what it is. I ordered a real egt probe but i would suspect that as long as i am not towing a car hauler up mt washington And use common sense all will be ok. With the higher egts, i have thought about making a cookbook for stage 3 enginebay recipesNot to get too far off track here, but is there an update to the stage 3 tune or are you guys referring to the stage 3.5?
Not sure how much further I'm willing to push my tune at the moment. I get light flywheel shutter at decent throttle in 6th gear. The shudder isn't too bad though, I just pass in 5th gear (which is more fun anyway). Honestly I only get shudder when I purposely try to get it to see if that's actually what's happening or if its road noise/tire noise.
Gtb2566vk may be a good place to start turbo wise. You'll NEED a LSD and also strengthen up the transmission if you have a manual. And obviously a clutch upgrade.So on the CP3 front. Now that we'll have all that fuel, who wants to work on a fun project to get a bigger turbo in place to take advantage of it?! . I am thinking stock injectors are good for a longer pulse/quantity. Air becomes the next challenge (again)
Good point on the low end torque. I'm guessing that's why hutchens went with the 2260.The gtb2260 will provide as much (or more) air as an unported head and stock injectors can handle. I personally wouldn't want to lose any more low end and response than what the 2260 provides.
Same here. Manually calc'd (and SGII) 56.6 mpg to Boston and back yesterday... That included a few moments of spirited drivingMy MPG's have definitely gone up, and I'm loving that side effect! I'm stage III with an aggressive tune, and my mileage is the best it's ever been. Even with spirited driving each tank, I have been averaging 45mpg or better. Car is running beautifully
Nope, luckily the CP3 has such a proven track record it is unnecessary for any containment.Just curious, for the CRs with the CP3, are you using 2micron's contain flow and pure flow, or is there no need to? Looks like a worthwhile upgrade.
