Yeah.

 

They only wanted to know if the power increase was under 25% more power or over 25% more power so 🤷‍♂️was about £500 extra to declare everything

 

Who are you insured with?

That doesn’t sound bad at all! 

How much was your insurance before the mods?

Would've been £1.3k

Hey Kieran,

 

I have a question,

My 7R

 472pk & 565Nm

 

Loba Lo462 turbo
JMTuning Downpipe with sportcat
VW Racing R600 Intake
Wagner Tuning Competition intercooler
Forge intake hose
JDEngineering Stage 3+ software
JDEngineering Stage 3 DSG software
Firezone Competition RON102 fuel

 

But then on the highway my dsg have slip,

so i decide to get uprated dsg clutch packs,

oettinger performance clutch, rated for 650 nm.

so the dsg again slips,

now the tuner set the dsg pressure from 12 bar to 16 bar and now i have zero slip.

So perfect,

But now in the higher rpm's around 5500 at full boost the engine is holding down,

so we logged, and the fuel pressure drops from 200 to 145 and back to 200.

So i think i need a loba hpfp....

Why needs my car a upgraded dsg clutch, and now a hpfp ???

there are a lot of other 7R / S3 with the same numbers or even more . 

around 500 hp

What is the limit of the fuel system of the 7R,  especiallythe hpfp ?

@bask04 I'm not too sure to be honest, I'm not a mechanic or a tuner unfortunately. However, when I've spoken to people who've had clutch slipping issues with the DSG, it almost always seems to be a result of the tune. I know plenty of people who have used a particular tuner, experienced clutch slip, then switched to a different one and not had any issues.

 

In regards to the fuel pump, I'm pretty sure you are on the verge of what the stock HPFP can handle. You're best asking your tuner this question though, they should be able to explain whether you need an HPFP or not

 

Also, every tuner is different. When I was going Stage 3, I was told by one tuner that I need a LPFP and a HPFP to achieve 500bhp, one tuner said I didn't need any, and the one I chose said I just needed a HPFP. I guess they tune cars in slightly different ways, which changes what is needed slightly.

I don't have times yet, I'm going to be getting a Dragy box very soon (slightly cheaper than Vbox but considered just as accurate). I'm expecting 2.9-3.2 for 0-60 and 10.7-11.1 for 1/4 mile

 

Did you ever get round to getting the Dragy?

Would be interesting to see the times!

Yeah, got it a couple weeks ago, I'm still figuring out which points are best to shift but so far I've had 3.04s 0-60, 7.05s 100-200, 11.03s 1/4

Wow good times, and so close to crazy fast. 2.9x 0-60, 6.9x and 10.9x 1/4....
 
Cool device the  Dragy though.


Yeah painfully close just need to find a road with a tiny bit more gradient, and I’m picking up some lightweight 18” wheels this weekend, which should get me there

Little update. Fitted 18" Neuspeed RSE10 with worn Bridgestone Potenza S100's and got these Dragy times, best out of 3 runs.

 

10.81s - 1/4 mile
6.86s - 100-200km/h
3.03s - 0-60mph

 

Extremely pleased with them, they were done with full weight and half a tank of fuel. Little less fuel, some octane booster and dialing in tyre pressures should get me into the 2s 0-60 and 10.7s on 1/4 mile!!

 

For reference, the 19" ATS Racelight wheels I usually run with are about 9.9kg. The Neuspeeds are 8.6kg, so a 1.3kg difference has resulted in 0.22s on 1/4 mile and 0.19s on 100-200km/h. These runs were done on the same road, with similar weather conditions. Also worth noting the tyres on the Neuspeeds (Bridgestone's) are not as highly rated/regarded as the PS4S' on the ATS Racelights, so maybe with some better tyres I'd see even better times...

That’s a great improvement from just the wheels/tyres. With a bit of luck when the weather gets a bit better and temps get into the 20s C the traction will get you into the 2s for the 0-60?

      So in August I traded my Manual 7R in for a DSG one (65 plate with 23k on clock), I bought the DSG for many reasons but mainly due to wanting to take it to Stage 1. After doing lots of research now I am slightly hesitant
       
      Would turbo failure be less likely on a car which has more miles problem free? I understand there is an issue with balancing but would this have become apparent earlier or are turbos still just as likely to blow on high miles - This goes for after going stage 1 too?
       
      I currently have 722H
       
      £1-2k is hefty (for me) so on one hand I'm thinking leave it but on the other I know there are many people out there running tunes with no issues whatsoever! A DSG map is definitely on there cards though without a doubt.
       
      ** PS apologies I know the turbo failure topic has been beaten to death 9 billion times **

      Hi guys,
       
      Im wondering who offers the best package in regards to going stage 3.
       
      Assuming  I already  had all the hardwhere installed for stage2. Downpipe intercooler  ect.
       
      Who can offer the most competitive  package for stage3. Including fitting of all parts and mapping.  So a Turbo , HPFP and the tcu ecu maps to coincide  with this and whatever else may be needed.
       
      Any information is appreciated!
       
      Kind regards
      Hassan

      Howdy folks,
       
      My name is Sam and I am a proud owner of a one of a kind Black Golf 7R, DSG with 5 Doors. I have named her Raven (I have my reasons   )
       
      Bit of background: I upgraded from a Mk5 GTI that was running a Stage 2+ Tune from R-Tech. My previous build thread (picture heavy) can be found here: http://www.mk5golfgti.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,92146.0.html

      I test drove a 7R at the start of 2016 and had my heart set on one ever since. However, I was too picky and wanted the exact specification I had in mind. Luckily I soon found the previous owner and have closely followed the development of this car from stock. I finally took ownership at the end of 2016. And needless to say...what a machine...  
      To put things into perspective   
      2011 GT-R R35: 523HP, 451LBFT, 1740KG 
      2014 Raven: 550HP, 556LBFT, 1401KG
      In her base form, she's a top spec Japanese Import 7R (2014 model). Factory spec includes:
      - 5 Door DSG in DBP
      - DCC (now swapped with VWR Coilies)
      - Discover Nav Pro with Reverse Camera
      - Sunroof
      - Keyless Entry
      - Black Leather interior with fully electric driver's seat adjustment
      - Lane Assist, Light Assist and all the other trimmings such as ACC etc
      I do not have the mods list compiled - its' a big list.. so for now, enjoy some pictures. Feel free to follow my Insta @sam.7r for recent updates.
       
      LOADS of changes have been made since I've taken ownership and there are plenty more in the pipeline. So stay tuned..
      Most of the changes I've made are related to suspension, chassis, wheels, audio and some performance. There's few cosmetic bits too.

      I will continue to update this thread as and when I can..

      I think it's time to set up a thread for my Golf. I did this on MiniTorque a few years ago with my R53 Cooper S and all of a sudden it went like a bat out of hell and I spent thousands.
       
      That's what I plan on doing again, but on a better car, and this time, with more displacement, 4wd and a turbo. More potential for sure.
       
      Picked up the car mid-April. I was looking around and originally was planning on getting DSG, and in the Lapiz blue. Went to Leicester to test drive theirs, but when I arrived, I was told it had sold. Great customer service. Anyway, back in Northampton we have a Parkway dealer. I test drove their Black 14 plate Golf R, fully specced apart from Pro Nav (bummer) and fell in love. Torquey, comfortable and full of gadgets. Everything I was lacking in the Cooper S (a shelled out tin can with bucket seats). I left a deposit and picked it up the following weekend.
       
      I quickly got bored with the power. It just wasn't aggressive enough. Felt quick initially but the inertia of power quickly faded away. I was in communication with Will @ VRS Northampton (handy for me, only about 7 miles away) over email for a while, before I booked in for an APR Stage 1 Low Output map.
       
      This transformed the car - how it should have been from factory. The turbo has a noticeably more satisfying note, the car pulls significantly harder and hits 1xx with ease. But, I have to go all out, or nothing at all, so this is only the beginning.
       
      The clutch is slipping intermittently, so a quick call to Will to purchase their daddy of Paddle clutches. This should be fitted this week, along with VWR springs (coilovers are 100% in the pipeline, but not a necessity just yet).
       
      Then the fun really begins. Stay tuned.
       
      CURRENT SPEC (15/06/16)
       
      - APR Stage 1 Low Output
      - Sachs Performance Clutch 4 Paddle Sintered
      - Carbon Mirror Caps
      - VWR Lowering Springs
      - Team Dynamic Pro Race 1.2 18" w/ Pilot Cup 2's
