Want More Power Out Of My Stagea


Recommended Posts

hey hows it goin

As the title says i just want to know what i should do to get more power out of my pretty much stock rb25neo engine, still running stock boost and the only mods i have done is put a 3in exhaust on it.

pretty much what i want to know is:

How much boost can i run through the stock ecu,

what chips/mods can i put in to to make it safer to run higher boost

should i get a fmic before jacking up the boost

what power should i start doin serious engine work

all in all i just want to get 210-220kw and just need to know what to do to get it and with minimum risk to my engine

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers Josh

nistune(ecu) and about 12psi on the stock turbo and you will be around 200rwkw +/- 10kw

you can get to the power level you want (or close enough) with the stock SMIC but fitting a FMIC at this stage will give you a little more capability possibly with a slight loss of response. if you are going to a larger turbo then the it is a pretty simple equation to go a larger IC.

better watch how much you boost it up, and how hard you drive it, or you will be picking out bits of ceramic wheel out of your intercooler.

10psi is a safe bet. i've just got a turbo back 3inch, pod filter, and its running 140.2kw.

high flowing next or going for a HKS GT3037 Pro S Turbo

ECU will need to be done, fuel pump, injectors might struggle. coilparks also.

and with the power, of course you will use it, so being an RB engine, catch/breather can will be good also :down:

thats what i've learnt on the forums anyway, might be corrected. :bunny:

    • New R34 owned here (from the US) and found a gem, '98 GTT with ~6k miles, super clean & completely stock. When shifting there's no grinding, shifts smooth, etc. The concern I have are 2 things: 1) Only in 2nd and 3rd... when maintaining a slower speed (in traffic as an example) as I let off/on the gas, the shifter will slightly move and vibrate. If the clutch is engaged, none of this happens. It's not bad, but enough to feel like something isn't necessarily right. 2) This mainly happen in 4th or 5th... the shifter slightly bounces up and down, almost like it's riding on unbalanced tires (and I do think the tires are unbalanced as I get a little of that bounce feel at higher speeds, which is maybe why it only happens in 4th/5th). Lastly, and sorry for this noob question but I want to work on this car myself, can someone teach me some on these manual transmissions? Like servicing them, best products to use, etc.; would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
    • Coilovers aren't even the first step. Bushes, subframe position and alignment, HICAS elimination, adjustable upper arms and traction arms in order to dial out understeer. All these things need/deserve attention first. ARBs (There's no such thing as a swaybar. Please, everybody, stop calling them that) are useful if you want to limit spring stiffness. Otherwise you can control body roll with springs. Spring and damper rates are a function of road surface, speed and usage. There is no solution that works for all cases.
    • Define "nothing". Is the starter spinning but not the engine? Engine turning but not firing? If the engine is turning but not firing, then you are missing either fuel or spark. You need to find whichever has gone missing.
    • Shitbox Tiguan updates, got the APR OTS tune put back on (no charge for it to be removed/added back), didn't want to just come in just for that (not a fan of wasting people's time for nothing) so I purchased an APR dog bone insert. The boys at German Performance Garage said they would fit it for free too since they had 1x hoist free. Now that's service you don't normally get from most workshops. Anyhow, tune back on, snow grate pulled out, dog bone insert back in and not going to lie, a few smiles when I nailed it around the industrial area heading back onto the M7. Amayama also said 1 to 2.5 month wait for the RB25DE heater hose, yeah why not, car has been off the road for nearly 3, what's a other 2.5?
    • Hmm I'm going to approach this from the other side... What is the car doing that you don't like or what would you like the car to do that is currently isn't doing (handling wise that is)
