Default =) Finally got my FT400smic Turbo 3.2 DSG back - dyno run (BWW)

Oh my god.. this is a totally different car than I remember!!
What happened to my sweet, innocent 3.2 TT that I left up in Vancouver a couple of weeks ago??

Finally after agonizing over the pictures sent all over the world for the last 10 days or so (for those who missed it, check Day 5, Days 2/3/4, and Day 1 of the install), I met the HPA crew down in LA this morning - as some yellow monster was being pulled out of their trailer.

And as the modified exhaust screamed its new tune and the induction-forced engine whistled its new song, I wondered "is this really MY car"?! =)

Well yes it is, and bringing it to you live from LA - the final product HPA has been working on with such devotion and passion over the last few days, my Yellow TT 3.2 DSG with the HPA FT400smic turbo kit (and others)!!!


Just came out of the trailer:




New SHS coilover suspension with about 15mm drop - looks just perfect to me:




15mm spacers in front, 25mm in back:




Front coilover:




Rear suspension (also got slotted discs & race pads all around):




Rear coil - doesn't collapse ;-)




Beefed-up 22mm Neuspeed rear sway-bar, and modified exhaust valve:




More details on the modified exhaust flap, which controls the muffler-bypass to the left tip:




Engine bay with the 400-hp Full Throttle turbo kit:




More details on the turbo kit - great finish with custom design for my TT:




Customized yellow Audi rings, powder-coated intake manifold & valve cover:




Relocated stock cooler on right side to fit turbo intercooler on left side, hence new openings:




Car finally makes it on the Dyno:




Strapping down the front:




Strapping down the rear:




Marcel Horn, President of HPA, ready to take a ride during the dyno run:




And finally, here's a movie of the dyno run being performed in 4th gear - you can see the DSG being shifted by the tech into 4th at the beginning, then as the wheels start moving faster.. crank up your sound system ;-P
I also like how the left exhaust tip starts "spitting" as the valve opens up to bypass the muffler
Results of the dyno coming up soon.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's event pictures, but most importantly Monday's track event with lots of pics & maybe some more movies!!

In the meantime, I'll try to shoot some short clips of the intoxicating turbo sound, new exhaust tone, and also of Launch Control - yes they finally managed put it in on a US-spec DSG, but after a LOT of trouble and sleepless nights.. more on this later ;-)

Enjoy!!
-Marc

I haven't been following this. Sounds like you've been up to some mischief!

Default Moi?? Naaahh...

Just trying to break new grounds, that's all :-P

HPA really wants to prove to the world that the DSG can actually take the load past its 350 Nm "torque rating", I'm just the messenger ;-)

You can follow the links I posted above to find out how this all came about..

Default What a beast!

Reminds me of the old Sylvester/Tweety Bird episode where they meet Dr. Jekyll and Tweety drinks the potion! Yikes!

Like I said before...GREEN with envy!

Have fun, Marc

Default Marc, you tease, post the movie please! :) ...

I can see in the file path there is no mpg (or mpeg or anything else other than jpegs) in that directory. If you need disk space, LMK. I'd be happy to make room!

Default Excellent! They seem to enjoy their work ;-)

The car looks 10 times better with the new suspension and spacers.

Vid link busted btw.

Definite sleeper. Looks great! I'd love to see the look on an Audi techs face if they ever see it.

Well, the 3.2 rotor is actually larger than Stoptechs so maybe the uprated pads will be enough.

New slotted rotors were installed along with the uprated pads.
