VW Jetta 'Getta' HY35 Engine Blows and Fire Starts!
My friends 2002 Jetta (2.0 auto) that was swapped with a 1.8t/manual swap, custom intake manifold and custom turbo kit with a Holset hy35, ls2 coils, unitronic ECU, digital climate control swap, audi tt front spindles, clutch masters fh400 clutch setup and audi tt awd 6speed tranny (will be converted to awd this year). The stock rods we know were the weak point but it didn't bother us because we have a fully built motor to go into it. During the video we were having issues with controlling the Boost and hitting 2.29-3.93 bars of Boost... and well you'll see the result. The reason for the fire was a nylon tube that melted and covered the turbo area in oil, which burnt the shifter cables and some wires. No big loss, 150 dollars in parts and a crazy drive. Will be back soon with over 550whp ;) The car was fine we were 1/8 of a mile from the house before it caught fire. Towed it home and found that the number 2 rod went threw the block RIP stock 1.8t Build thread can be seen here http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread... We want to thank the two families who used their car for us to drive to our house and grab all the water and helped extinguish the fire. We thank you SO much. Please if you ever see this video contact us we would like to repay you in some way. To us you guys are heroes.
