Hello to everyone I open this topic with some pictures of my car and it's modification. Some pictures are from my old 8v engine but exhaust, intake and turbine are still the same.

I put the album since there are really many. There is also the last dyno result with the 16v engine. That torque is reached since I had a REALLY low lambda value , now I lowered the torque for clutch slipping problem.
I started tuning the car since I bought it. Since about 8 months I didn't know anything about chip-tuning and now this is the result with my own chip-tuning..
And this is especially thanks to this forum and other people in Italy that helps me.
The story of my car is long and I try to be as fast as possible. As soon as I bought it (used with 60000km) I made exhaust, filter and chip tuning and reached 165hp and 370nm. After about six months I put my first bigger turbo that was a kit from an Italian guy (I discovered only later that was a gtb2056v). With 1.6/1.7 peak and 1.45 stable I made 190hp. After about 10.000km or little more the manifold were completely destroyed (this due to a bad 'building' from the mechanic that didn't put any bracket in the downpipe). I found so an used kit with custom manifolds and an old gt2256v. With 2 bar peak and stable after 3 months I fuse a piston (didn't know how was the other settings of the ecu). I replaced the piston, change all the piston rod and fitted new manifolds with gtb2056v but with pressure wg. I ran that 2 bar constant boost and made many and any autobahn session with that, and unfortunately in a track day in Monza the wg broke and the turbine too after a few acceleration.I didn't know how much boost it reached since my old pressure gauge after 2 bar turn off and on again. After that I decided to make the best change I could make, and so I fitted the 2260vk with new manifolds, new downpipe (downpipe for 2056 was 62mm while the new one is 76mm
), new intake and double cone filter. Also a new chip tuner made my ecu but car didn't run so well and made 3000mbar just at 3000rpm, so I went back to my old chip tuner and car started to go much better (but smoking). I tried this turbine also with 3500mbar till revs and I never had problem, also with 3800mbar peak. Of course that pressure is not safe because the max you can do is 3500mbar peak and 3000/3100bar at revs. After a while I decided to start learning chip tuning. I read my ecu and I saw that many maps were changes in all the table, like the injection time was changed with 2mm3 and 200bar
. I started changing some settings with the help of another friends (but he also changed injection time and didn't inform the ecu like it must do), after a months with a lower setting the engine break. At this time the best things to do was replacing it with a 16v one..
I found an used engine with about 40-50 thousand km and mounted it with new manifold, new tube fin intercooler (the old one was plate&bar), 60mm intercooler pipes, renewed injector with 2,4 nozzle and renewed injector pump. Now after many and many test on the road I made 267hp and 550nm on the dyno, but I'm always trying new settings with few hp lost but with smoother curve and some torque lost for cluth slipping.
Hope to make this post in the right session and hope you enjoy my story.
