    Mk3 was never in the cards. It's an occasional driver so I want to row my own gears and it's half the cost of the mk3 at this point. I'll use the rest of this summer to sort the chasis and suspension out and it will probably head to iroz at the end of winter if I'm still in love with it.

    Pictures to come after I have a chance to detail.

    If anyone is wondering what 9,416 ft DA looks like...

    UMS tune and secondary cat delete are the only power mods (AWE Switch Path) and I had a blend of ~11 gallons 100 octane, 2.5 gallons 91 octane, and 2.5 gallons E85 in the tank. Started the day at 21lbs and 98 octane and worked my way up to 102 octane and 24lbs (best time). Surprisingly, the times stayed more or less the same, regardless of setting so I'm pretty confident saying this turbo has simply tapped out at this level. The car would do nicely with a 12.8 dial-in if I ever wanted to bracket race, though.

    Launch control was set for 5,000 RPMs for the majority of the runs (clutch slipped through most of 1st) and bogged in the last run when I dropped it to 4,000 RPMS. I think a clutch upgrade is in order if the 60' is going to come down.

    Anyhow, I wasn't expecting anything phenomenal at nearly 6,000 ft elevation and a 90+ degree day, but was hoping to at least see a mid 12 with traps in the teens. From what I've read and other cars I watched run, I'd guess I was 6-7mph down on runs in favorable conditions... I'll head back in a few weeks when it cools down.

    Nice. My Mitsubishi Galant used to run about exactly the same times at Bandimere in the same conditions. It's so cool so see these near stock cars doing what it took me so much experimentation and parts changing to do. Thanks for the data point, I had wondered what times a new RS3 would get there. At least this gives me a ballpark idea.

    Someone actually followed up to my FB post with a near stock RS3 (secondary cat delete) and the following time slip. This was run in slightly better conditions than my time @ ~8,600 DA. I'd have to think my car would be damn near the same with a DSG.

    You'll never hear my complain about my local track again.

    Well, maybe a little, but even breaking into the 11's there would be an accomplishment.

    There was a gorgeous 991 turbo running low low 10s at 135+ in the peak of the heat, so it can be done. I'd imagine you just need to go a spec or two larger on the turbos to make up for the thin air.

    I also feel a bit better about my time after seeing that rs3 slip. That should be a 116mph car at sea level and I was able to pick up 25mph on the back half vs his 21 so my car is running well once shifting is out of the equation.

    Yeah, a big turbo is key to solving problems at high elevation. Except that everything is laggy anyway up there so a big turbo is REALLY laggy. You have to put a lot of effort into anti lag strategies and how to come off the line at full boost without losing traction. But if you get it worked out you are basically untouchable on the street because everybody else bogs or burns or is too slow to matter. But watch out for V8s with slicks and nitrous :-).

    Thank you! The na v8s were down in the sub 105 range so I think I'll stick to the big turbo plan.

    In other news, some stupid $#@! that was too busy texting decided to rear end the Macan so this project has been delayed slightly. Hopefully the TT is under the knife by mid-Dec.

    Going with a new Xona hybrid and supporting mods. It has run low 10's north of 130mph at sea level so I'm hoping for a high 10 north of 125mph at my altitude.

    Since I realized I never uploaded pictures of the actual car:

    Superforgiata's that were on the car when I bought it. Under 19lbs @ 19" Click here to enlarge

    The day before pulling the trigger on new suspension and thinking I may want to see how much clearance I have in and out of my garage. Looking for someone to grind down the concrete or some other fix for this...

    if you are going with the iroz Xona hybrid, I think you are going to be much faster than you anticipate Click here to enlarge
    as one of their customer cars ran 9.6/145 on hybrid/ stock motor... these things are hauling!

    That would be nice (and far more than I need from this car) I think you're referring to the Mk3 TTRS / RS3.

    This is going in a Mk2 so I'm limited by the fuel system and rowing my own gears, but I'd think a turbo of this size would be good for consistent 9's in a full weight, newer TTRS. It has made 550whp and pushed a 6speed clearly over 130mph so it has plenty of potential. At my altitude I'd be happy with a high 10@125 on e30 and a mid 10 with race gas blend in the tank.

    LOL, I think I mentioned your site in a referral box on one my orders. I dropped the car off and was able to inspect the turbo last night. The Xona billet cartridges really are a work of art and seeing it worked into the stock housings is even more impressive. Really looking forward to having the car back in a week or so.

    It's a shame that this is all that's visible once it's installed. Need to put a few hundred more miles on the new clutch before we can crank the boost up, but even on the wastegate spring it is noticably stronger than the stock turbo after 5,5000 rpm.
