My b230f+t was faster then a mk7 6speed manual. But that was a 23psi and it melted a hole in a piston shortly after.

I don't see the harm in racing for pinks, you can buy the car back from the scrap yard for $500 anyways

If you’re racing for pinks boost that bitch to the moon. If you win, sell the vw and swap in a ls3. If you lose, you blew the motor anyways so who cares. Don’t be a pussy.

Don't go to aggressive on the cam, it won't play nice with a small turbo. Don't know about the v16t but just a general remark.

The V16T should be ok with the 19T turbo. Ideally the turbo's hot side would be larger, but it will still be in the efficiency range assuming everything else is stock. Might need more injector if cranking up the boost for real, but LH2.2... 14psi should be fine if all else is working properly and it's not pig rich due to some other issue. *Should*. More *might* be fine, too...

So, how'd it go? Or has it not happened yet?

2 things:
1. From what I've seen on the forums, the 9mm rods max out at 250 crank hp. Any more than that, you're going to throw it out the side of the block. the B230F engine's power output, 14psi will net you 230 bhp/180 whp, but your experience can/will vary due to wear. Aim for 15/16 psi, and avoid stepping on it until you're on the track. After the track, turn it back down.

2. The GTi weighs around 200lb more than a stock 240 sedan. If you can dump weight, do so, and you might be able to win with a few less horsepower.

As a side note: make sure your MAF is tuned, if you've got LH2.2. That's going to help a lot.

thats just internet lore like 5.0 splitting the block at 500hp. ive been running 9mm rods on lh2.2 for almost 10 years between 15 and 20 psi making 220ish whp. someone a few years back made a few passes at 300whp before he slung a rod (red wagon with evo turbo).

Agreed. Smorgesbord is new and just sharing what he’s read so far. You can always make more power, you just need to be smarter about it. Torque, that might be a problem. Hah
