  • 2010 MKVI Volkswagen GTI with upgrade turbo (EFR7163) versus Cobb Protune E90 335i from a roll

    The two videos below come to us courtesy of VWBoost.com member zhijjawi10 (try typing that screenname 10 times fast). What you have here is a MKVI Volkswagen GTI with a EFR turbo, Eurodyno boost controller, inline Bosch lpfp (low press fuel pump), and a map for meth with pump gas. Boost on the GTI is at 23 psi. The car is tuned by Chris Tapp using the Eurodyne Masetro Tuning suite which is a flash uploading through an interface cable.


    The E90 335i has the N54 twin turbo inline-6 motor BimmerBoost members know and love. It has full bolt on modifications (front mount intercooler, intake, meth injection) and is said to be putting out 420 wheel horsepower with a Cobb Pro Tune for meth injection. That is a stout 335i.

    There are two videos below. The first video cuts out when the GTI starts to pull. The second video shows what happens in a subsequent roll on race as the GTI puts several car lengths on the 335i up top. The GTI is said to spin in second gear even at 40 miles per hour. When it hooks, it is clear what happens. Very, very impressive GTI to take this 335i so strongly. Much respect to @zhijjawi10.

    Videos below.

      is it an '08 or '09?
      if anything revert it back to stock and trade it in for one with lower miles, or even a 335 that's still in CPO warranty for a year or two.

      Well I think coming from the school of though with the n54 platform being a time bomb I'm hesitant to keep going deeper into the modding route with it. I don't think I'll ever sell this car, and have been advised not to do so by everyone that sees it/drives it/rides in it. It is truly a work of art and I really appreciate it. However, I might just invest in keeping the OEM units running flawlessly and maybe get a set of wheels. There are very few times I can really use the potential of 400+ ponies on the road. It's cool to bark by cars with my exhaust or make girls wet when I drive by but I will never go the route I did with my GTI. That is why I'm at a crossroads with it, I really hate to see it get bastardized and I feel that if I keep ripping $#@! out of it and putting aftermarket $#@! back in I'll really regret it. Pipes and tunes and intercoolers I don't care about but I really want to start taking care of it instead of running it into the ground so people on forums can argue.

      The cobras were the only concrete runs I had! Next time we will set something up.

      93 octane + meth. Was running too rich, need to log without meth, or find out how to get over this 22.4psi limit.

      Something in the tune, correct. Hardware is all there ready for 28-30 psi.

      Internal, I'll have to speak with my tuner and see what he thinks.

      Every time i've tried brake boosting, I mess up horribly. My brembo's are super sensitive for such a light car. It's hard to do, I just need practice.

      What's up Lou, next time put the correct amount of E85 in your tank!

      ever think of running a boost controller? I know Sammy with the GIAC BT and JR with the UNI BT are both running them.

      hear GK is parting out? found metal shavings in oil after a race.

      Zach has a progressive boost controller I believe. And yeah, I heard about GK, I wonder if the oil starvation issue came into play or what. Gone are the days where I'm replacing turbos, I'm just going to buy a car that can produce the numbers I want with the stock engine and snails.

      I can change boost on the fly via my handheld Eurodyne interface that connects to my boost manager plus.

      Dude I just got some direzzas 101's today off tire rack so I'm not running two different tires on the back anymore. I'm hyped, 255's are back. Plugs are getting changed tonight too. She needs some TLC.

      We should all meet at a bar and grab dinner soon so we are all in one location and then go run. Do you know of any airstrips in NOVA that we could chip in to rent? That would be epic.

      Renting out an airstrip would be sweet. I don't know of any though. And yeah np, just stop being such a bish all the time.

      I know how you feel man. Bunch of them are naive kids that put their GTI up on a pedestal. I remember I was one of them when I was stage 2 LOL. I barely go there anymore, not too bright in there besides the people with big turbos and the guys here.

      yep i only go there to check classifieds, the meth and big turbo threads. everything else is just typical "will a flash void my warranty" and "which filter on a stick is best?" or "totally go with the intercooler for APR, it's certainly a $1000 better than the godspeed $#@!"
