FWIW, SAE corrections really are not applicable to FI cars.

rilly? I had assumed it's a correction for elevation and temperature. We're at 400 ft elevation so there's not much correction to be had there, so other than that it would have been temp and humidity.

O well. Either way. Uncorrected

The problem is that the compressor substantially changes the air's properties in ways the correction doesn't account for. For example, if you were driving your Miata way up in the mountains and were still making 15psi, a normally aspirated SAE correction would give you, well, FM's numbers.

Yea, you are correct.
I don't know if I've seen a s-wagen with a GTI conversion. Hurry up and buy it so I can fap.

I would probably also put the GTI wheels on it. Or these:

We're both truly confused by the PO. Afraid of over heating? Let's put a TSE radiator and reroute in, but run it with no thermostat. Afraid of blowing an engine? Let's build it with forged goodies, and then run it pig rich, low psi, and most likely extremely conservative spark maps.

His low boost setting is 8psi! Boooo.

I could get into a measuring contest over confusing POs, but for now, i'll just say "I feel his pain."

No need. You win. At least mine didn't put a 2554 on a built motor

Just a heads up on the GTI front end Ed. It will fit, but you also need to modify the fenders and/or buy GTI fenders and then modify the top that meets the A pillar. It will not match AT ALL. You either need to weld a piece of filler metal in or fiberglass it because there will be a 1 1/2" gap. Also the rocker panels may need some tweaking as well

Sadly the Sportwagen was built on the MK5 chassis but with all the Mk6 revisions added on(MK5.5). So a lot of parts translate over but sadly the front bumper swap is not as easy and bolt, clip, drive.

Sorry to keep the side track going, but I think the 2015 GTI wheels are badass as far as VW's oem wheels go. Way better than the Detroits.. and I want to see them on a new Golf wagen or a Sportwagen.

I had understood that there was some part you could swap and there'd be a bit of a gap but not bad. Interesting that you're pointing it that it takes considerably more than that.

Honestly if it's going to be a PITA I'll just do a GTI grille and call it good. I don't really care that much for the bumper anyway.

No need to apologize, I'm obviously not particularly focused I like those too for sure. Detroits will be much cheaper but all that is WAY low on the priority list.

My car is on a lift in the shop getting the new throw out bearing installed... and the vband clamp on the turbo to downpipe joint is stripped Trying to get it replaced before dyno time tomorrow night. Wish me luck.

I guess it depends on how much of an *** the seller wants to be. You are obviously showing him that the purchase price is what the market can offer.

Auctions would frustrate the hell outta me.

You can call him Mr. Giantass because he is one. Last time they said their minimum was $7500. This time it's $6400. A couple more rounds and we're there

In other news: My car is currently at KO Racing getting a thermostat swapped, vband clamp replaced, and getting ready for dyno time tonight. Sure hope it works out this time.
