K04 BOOST LEVEL

Postby turbodub » Fri Dec 01, 2017 3:00 pm

the question i have is how much boost do most of the TFSI generation K04 cars run , this includes the S3 and Golf R as well as the SEATS and BWA engined conversions. I am wanting to know what most guys would consider the max useable boost is on the road and then what guys run on the track for events with octane boosters etc. also with and without tuning for methanol.
thanks for any input.

Boost will be dependent on hardware and more importantly on fueling.
Some strong stage2+ cars will see about 2.0bar spike holding 1.3/1.4 at the top rpm. This also determined by the wastegate spring pressure and that the person tuning the car wants to achieve.

Race files are generally similar files with regards to boost profiles but have higher ignition advance due to the better quality of fuel and reducing the chances of knock.

It is a tuner specific thing. Too much boost means lots of torque and wheel spin also. My G6r spiked at 1.9bar with a Unitronic file and 1.7bar with the CPI file. Made 12 more wkw with the CPI file though. That was full bolt ons.
