VAG 1.8T 20V on a mk2 Golf

Postby HidRo » Wed Oct 05, 2016 7:17 am

Hi guys.

Just wanted to share, that the success story keeps on going.
I have MS for some years now, and everything is working strong.
I've been doing some trackdays, and everything is running perfect. Just had a boost issue but was down to a manifold leak.

Some youtube videos of the sessions:
Mais um trackday feito, que correu muito bem. Curti pra caraças, praticamente nenhum problema, foi um dia top.
As 4 sessões:
Estoril Experience 02 Outubro VW Golf mk2 GTI - Trackday Session 1 - YouTube

Tempos, medidos pelo filme (não fiável):
1st movie
4.17 - 6.46 - 2.29m
6.46 - 9.08 - 2.22m
9.08 - 11.38 - 2.20m
11.38 - 13.56 - 2.18m
13.56 - 16.17 - 2.21m
16.17 - 18.42 - 2.25m
2nd movie
3.45 - 6.06 - 2.21m
6.06 - 8.31 - 2.25m
8.31 - 10.56 - 2.25m
10.56 - 13.16 - 2.20m
13.16 - 15.40 - 2.24m
15.40 - 18.06 - 2.26m
3rd movie
3.38 - 6.04 - 2.26m
6.04 - 8.26 - 2.22m
8.26 - 10.50 - 2.24m
10.50 - 13.17 - 2.27m
13.17 - 15.35 - 2.18m
15.35 - 18.10 - 2.35m
4th movie
3.10 - 5.35 - 2.25m
5.35 - 7.58 - 2.23m

Good drivers with good cars (LSD and slicks) are able to do 2m flat, so I'm still way to far of doing a good lap :D

Cheers!

Did another trackday, and improved my times in 8seconds!
2:10:39
Best lap of each session, but unfortunately, did not record the fastest... :(

Still need to improve the driving skills.
Had a braking issue (powersteering fluid going over the brakes), very high coolant temps (120+C) due to the smallest Golf mk2 radiator. considering buying the biggest (430mm vs 625mm length), and exhaust leaks (turbo to manifold bolts undoing.)

Other than that, it was a blast :D

I did another trackday on this 1st October.
It was a good trackday, managed to drop 1s to my best time but only when I was alone (it was the last session as well). Did a 2.09.94.

Issues...
The water temp raised up to 108C at the last session.
It was 99, 106, 102 on the other sessions.
MAT was 39, 42, 45 and 46 on each of the 4 session.
This was with around 28C maximum outside temps.

I had an exhaust leak I could hear, but could not identify where, and instead of doing 0.8bar it was doing 0.66 and instead of high boost 1.5bar, it was doing 1.2bar.

So, still not perfect for the water I would say. MAT is really good I believe.

Oil temps, whenever I looked, was at around 86 etc. So not over 100 for sure. The sensor is the one corresponding to the cluster.
Could it be due to the low position of the sump?

The car it self, "boats" around a bit. I believe I'll need stiffer springs. Going any lower than it is will get the a-arms pointing up, which is not good. I locked the damp setting to the max, and was ok with it, but the rocking movement is still very noticeable.
I might test some front coilover springs in the rear, stiffing the rear a bit.

Other than that, good fun!
