    Check the reference section.

    Your VW experience won't help much here, since Volkswagen does everything bassackwards, but at least you know your way around cars.

    Well, speaking of bassackwardsness, heres a bassackwards swap that I helped my buddy do:

    The car is a 1991 VW GTI, with a G60 block and a crossflow 8v head.

    It runs 17PSI, Reliably, on 20 year old management, makes 250lbs/tq easily (more than an NSX). And makes roughly about 200hp to the ground.

    At any rate, we found an adapter harness to make the integra harness work with the factory ECU.

    What kinda turbo you rockin'? That's a pretty sweet setup man. I luv veedubs too. Why do these two comunities have to hate on each other so much. We're all sport compacts.

    Well, this is my buddy's car. 91gti_wolfsburg over on vwvortex.

    As far as I know, it is a T3/T04E. The turbo is garbage, XS-Power. He is swapping it out for a Turbonetics unit the same size this winter.

    That is a 3" exhaust, from the wastegate housing to the sidepipe.

    The engine has ARP hardware everywhere, forged crank, rods, and pistons. 9:1 CR.

    The car has bilsteins + H&R's, Audi S4 brakes.

    You should hear it in a tunnel. It is EPIC.
