Mk2 Jetta 2L 8V turbo

'89 Mk2 Jetta. 2 litre 8 valve ADY block with stock internals (ARP conrod bolts). AEG 8 Valve X-flow head, intake and throttle body (mildly flowed head and stock G60 cam). 3,2mm Stainless Steel spacer plate sandwiched by 2 OEM metal headgaskets (calculated and measured comp ratio is 8,52:1). 525cc Delphi injectors. Perfect Power XMS4C management system running 60-2 crank angle sensor and coil pack on wasted spark. Custom tubular Exhaust manifold. 63mm downpipe and Exhaust with single silencer. Wastegate dumptube plumbed into Exhaust. Precision PTE5857 turbo with billet compressor wheel (AR.48 turbine housing, AR.60 compressor). Precision PW39 wastegate. Running 1 Bar (14.5PSi) Boost on 95 octane pump fuel, no additives, octane Boosters, water-meth, funny mixes, nothing but straight pump fuel. DIY'd almost everything myself. In this vid, it was in the process of getting tuned, so no final numbers available yet, but figures on vid show 238Hp ATW. After this vid was made, more tuning was done and figures are +-190kW (255Hp) and 320Nm ATW at Highveld altitude. Final tuning must still be done, however, so I am most likely going to see 260+Hp and around 330Nm.

Turbo Exhaust Whistle Test
Here is a test of the turbo Exhaust whistle on my Ford Focus. The turbo Exhaust whistle is supposed to make a regular car sound like it has a turbocharger on it. The turbo Exhaust whistle fits inside of the Exhaust tip on a car, and it makes a whistling noise when you rev up the engine. You can buy a turbo Exhaust whistle for less than ten dollars on eBay. Watch this video review of the turbo Exhaust whistle to see if you need one.
