• 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.

      haha yeah man it was bad. Granted, I would flat out argue and disagree with many of them, however, when I sold my GTI and got the 135 I became the "elitest prick". What do you drive by the way? I see 773 whp. Supra maybs?

      What supercharger do you have on it? Nice BTW! I'm trying to figure out this forum it says VW boost but has a lot of Bimmer's and Mercedes threads? Is it just an amalgamation of all German engineered cars under one roof? If so, thank god.

      I still have my cobalt, but my EFR blew on me on the way to a 1/2 mile drag strip back in march. Now I have a 25g~ gt35-37r but it's not working properly and I can't seem to fix it. Paying my tuner to come down here, I'm buying his built motor and fixing my turbo issue. I should be in 500+whp range when finished. If all goes well of course..

      LMFAO, this is spot on. So sad how it is there, I would never pay 1k for an intercooler no matter what name is on it. God damn nut huggers.

      He's got a YSI on a built motor in his m3. So it's a pretty badass setup AFAIK the only one too. But yea, this is Germanboost domain. There's bimmerboost,benzboost,porscheboost vwboost audiboost. all that good stuff. There's gonna be Domesticboost, and DSMboost too I believe wtih sub categories, liek chevyboost, caddyboost. etc. This site will go far but will take some time.

      Whatever, as long as it isn't pages upon pages of stock gti vs v8 camaro kill threads with no videos.


      Edit: Just picked up a couple 255/35/18 Dunlop Direzza101's for my 1er's rear. Anyone use these? I hear pretty solid reviews on them and I had their predecessor (z1 star specs) on the back before one of them went flat (bought them used).

      all the universal $#@! -- "kills" "wheels" "detailing" etc are all across the board for the germanboost network

      going to audiboost, vwboost, bimmerboost has sections specific to their cars. go over to bimmerboost.com and you'll see all the n54 $#@!.
