Thanks Martin. Can't wait for laz to be back out there.

I'll have some video up later today. Got all my sessions recorded and have some footage of my fast lap and also some play time with Oregonmon.

Screwed that video up. That was my second fastest lap with the fastest data overlay on it here is the real one

Yes, I find it pretty impressive that your optimal time and fastest lap were so, so close. very cool.

Had a chance to do a 8/6 enduro at PIR in April, but the motor blew.

plan was always boost with the 99 motor, just gotta figure out what and how. Really want Kris at KO to build something baller, but don't have the proper turbo on hand yet.

Does it have rods?

Also, anyone who was behind me can tell you about the crazy amount of smoke coming out of my car on up shifts, and flames on downshifts. I think that the new catch can I added isn't flowing enough. Going to pull it off and confirm though.

If it's bad you put the 1.8 in.

No time/$$$

Both my motors need a rebuild. Which means rods. Which means pistons. Which means BE pump....

The list never ends.

JDM import bro!

Seriously though, a B6 with trans and <60k miles is $700 here, BP with the same is $1200. Buy, drop, zoom until you can rebuild the 1.8. I am sure there has to be an engine importer over there somewhere.

I have 2 VVT motors in my garage. $1200 is halfway to an engine build. Also can buy a dirt bike. Or new dirt bike stuff. Or some of a ring.

Car drives. Makes boost. Rotella is $15 a gallon. Burning oil is the least of my concerns.

There is literally no reason to put in another engine besides a built VVT motor.

1. Sell 1.6 stuff for profit (minus labor)
2. Install/wire VVT with stock header. Make only 30 less hp and probably more torque than current 1.6t setup.
3. Build 2nd VVT while trashing other VVT. Use VVT in car for manifold mock up.
4. Install built VVT and turbo stuff.
5. Sell used and abused VVT.

My "good" VVT came out with rod knock. So it needs a bottom end anyways.

Also I'm really trying to not spend money on the car right now. Hailey leaves for school sometime next year hopefully and I will dive into it then.

Really no reason to dig into this 1.6 (or to do the VVT swap now for that matter). The car runs damned good and is reliable. Keep running it til you can comfortably build it right. I think you're very much on the right track.

Would really like you to get about 200-220 whp on track though. I think that would make us even on the straights, so we could have more fun dicing it up on the track.

Don't think i'll ever run that much. I'd like to be in the 180's by the end of this year or next year.
