  1. V6 Turbo 24v MK4 AUE

    She was mapped Tuesday, she held well up to 1.4bar at 451bhp then blew a silicone off the turbo. We put the jubilee back on and another for good measure and carried on. From then on the car would not make the same power. We believe a gasket could have gone at the same time. The inlet has gasket paper so we think it could be that. The other little issue is on idle the car is over revving on its own, we are not sure why. The mapper tweaked a few bits but it is still happening. Since then, last night I took the motor out and done some pulls with VCDS plugged in, the throttle is sitting at 5-7% when the car is idling on its own up to 2500rpm which is pointing to a air leak, Pressure tested it and it wasn't holding pressure or the tyre pump at the garage was shot. Tried to smoke test it but couldn't get any smoke out the break booster pipe when I took it off so not sure whats the crack there as the throttle should be at 3% with ignition on. Next step is take the SRI off and Throttle Body, bin the paper gaskets and Silicone them up. Need to order a new Recirc Valve as my mapper was not impressed with the cheap eBay crap I installed Any advice on which Recirc Valve to go with? Dual 710N's was my idea but they blow alot. Ideally 34mm or 40mm inlet/outlet. Dyno video below 20170808_185126.mp4
  2. Digital Dash - RealDash

    Yeah i know Phil personally but thanks. I was looking to find any MK4's that had done it but I guess not yet.
  3. Digital Dash - RealDash

    Thinking of installing RealDash into the centre console of my Mk4 Golf. Has anyone done this or replaces their OEM cluster with a Digital Dash? Pics please
  4. Ok, so this is going to be interesting for me as I am wondering which cars my engine would be easiest to swap into. The engine is 24V 2.8 vr6 from a mk4 V6 4mo. I am interested in which newer cars with newer gen haldex i would be able to swap this into. I know i can swap from mk4 golf, audi TT mk1, Audi A3 8L, Audi A4, Cupra etc.. earlier models basically. If anyone has done this please inform of what you have swapped and how hard it was/details on what you had to do regarding the newer gen haldex. I would be going standalone as it will be fully forged and turbo. Thanks guys.
  5. I thought I would put my photos/videos up from my AUE V6 Turbo build because there is not enough info on the AUE engine out there. Power target is 500bhp, if I can get more safely and practically it will be going up. I've seen a stock motor get 474whp/576bhp on YouTube, be interesting to see if it is achievable. My engine is not forged. If anyone is interested in the build let me know and I will do a spec. Also ask any questions you want, I am happy to answer. The car is going to Stealth Racing UK next week for stock management (ME7.1) mapping, I started this build around 4 weeks ago. R32 Side skirts are being left off as Stealth Racings Dyno is risen from floor level. The kit does need a respray at some point and the Aristo wheels will be going black. The current wheels have Rainsport 3 tyres on which are nearly new so ill be using those over the winter and then put the Aristo's on next year. 335i is my daily at the moment 20170801_200554.mp4 VID-20170801-WA0142.mp4
  6. R32 rep exhaust route 3"

    I have a V6 4mo Turbo with a R32 kit on. I am building the exhaust myself but just curious how others exhaust routes for the same situation look. Going 3" turbo back with 1no 18" silencer. I am passed the rear sub frame now but wondering how you routed the rear pipes out and if you used tips or straight pipe. cheers One pic is my undercarriage without the exhaust on and the other is my V6T in production a couple weeks back.
  7. The definitive remapping thread

    OK so in this case, I can get a tuner to flash my ECU for my engine much the same as the BDE? Take UnitedMotorsports for example, I can I a UM flash for my car and build the car to the supporting mods? Is this availabile? Thanks
  8. Yeah I've tried to contact them but not had a reply unfortunately, thanks though. I'm interested in others who have used ECU flash or Megasquirt for their builds on the AUE 24v block if anyone has done this. Cheers
  9. The definitive remapping thread

    I know his is an old thread and this is a lot of information that I need to read a lot more detailed however I have been informed that the AUE engine is not as easy to mod and it is non VVT. Is this correct? If so what route is best to take with this engine. I am only asking here as you have stated all 24v variants are the same. Thank you
  10. Hello Gents and Ladies, I have a 2001 mk4 golf VR6 24v, AUE engine code. I am shooting for 450-500bhp on stock internals, except decomp plate & ARP head studs. Turbo will be along the lines of GT35. I am interested in anyone else's setups / part list and where you got your parts, any reputable companies you have used. I will be building the engine myself. I am in the UK (if you hadn't noticed) and will be having my ECU flashed with a UM.. would this be doable on the AUE or would I have to go MS3? I appreciate any help/information but don't appreciate BS. Thanks in advance.
