VEHICLE STORY

I Bought this car back in January of 2016 and at first it was just finally achieving the ability to purchase my dream car. In November i started taking pictures of the car and putting them on Instagram. I learned that I had a serious passion for this car and started to build it in hopes to achieve an 11 second run!

Alright guys so the cars official best time is 12.5 seconds at ATCO Raceway in NJ. was 84 degrees out so was kind've hot and our tires are beat so we were having some difficulties launching at full rpm. I'll be ordering Kumho Extreme Performance Tires in the next couple weeks and Picking Up the 034 motorsport Motor and Trans Mount Tuesday This Week From Drive Auto Works In NJ.

Had My Exhaust Tips Powder Coated Black and they are now on the car ;)

[]Ryan Bradford

This week we will focus on getting the Maxton Front Splitter on the Car as well as blacking out the VW badges and picking up the black eyelids

[]Ryan Bradford

Okay So I Just Picked the Dub up again from the shop. Replaced the old strut and wheel bearing. Car has also been realigned.

[]Ryan Bradford

The Dub blew out a wheel baring and needs a new strut so stay tuned for getting her back

[]Ryan Bradford

Okay guys so me and George are happy with where the jb4 is set at on map 6 right now. I'll publish my map 6 settings later today! We are going to be testing again when the temperatures get a bit higher in my area to see what we can get away with through summer.

[]Ryan Bradford

My Exhaust Tips Are Currently Being Powder Coated Black, I Will be ordering black eyelids or having them wrapped sometime this week time willing

Tires, Intercooler and/or Snow Performance Methanol Injection Kit Are Next Mods In The Works

[]Ryan Bradford

Circuit Werks Catless Downpipes Is Now Installed On Car Along With Custom Resonator Delete. Low End Torque gains are noticeably different and has allowed me to move past stage 1 into higher boost in preparation for Stage 2 type numbers after Intercooler or Meth Injection, Have Not Decided which route I am taking yet. I may run both as I do daily drive the car so methanol may not be the ideal route for how the car is currently used. If I run both I will have two maps installed into JB4 and most likely only utilize methanol on track days.

I have installed my Burger Tuning JB4 Tuning Module. I love that I can now see all my readings (AFR, Boost PSI, IGN Timing Corrections, etc.) The Customer Service Provided By George At Burger Tuning is unmatched by anything I have experienced so far. I started off on the factory map and was app to change to Map 2 right through the phone app which is direct connected to the unit through a usb cable. I ran logs and emailed them to George and he responded less than 12 hours later (I sent late at night) with recommendations on my fueling open loop and had me adjust my boost safety threshold. I Then ran more logs after the changes the same day and sent them again. George responded a few hours later and had me switch to map 6 which provides less torque on bottom end however it pushes more boost at higher rams as this is what my car likes. We will be working this week to proton map 6 in order to max out the cars capabilities given its current supporting Bolt On setup.

I have installed My Subframe Mounts from 034 Motorsport and Have seen instant improvements in the slooshy rear end response when cornering and they also helped to keep the car tighter and less bouncy when hitting imperfections in the road surface! Highly Recommended!

[]Ryan Bradford

We will be installing Our JB4, Circuit Werks Downpipe and 034 Motorsport Subframe Mounts Over This Weekend.
