TRD's Supercharged 20v

Post by TRD on Sun Oct 19, 2014 10:05 pm

Hi all, here is my well loved Golf V5 20v that i have been modifying since October last year. I kept it completely original for the first few months as i was just going to sell it on after sorting a few small faults out but after driving it about as a daily, i just had keep it and use it as a project car!

I didn't go for a remap first as the aspirated motors don't really get a decent power gain like turbo motors or turbo diesels. I went straight in for the RUF supercharger conversion!

As I specialise in performance tuning German cars on a daily basis, this was a personal project for myself to see what i could do to this little 2.3 20v. just done in evenings and weekends between customers projects, it has taken me about 4months to re-engineer. I know the owner of RUF Kompressoren in Germany as we are the UK RUF supercharger tuning agents and wanted to do something for my V5.

Fantastic work, engine bay looks mint. Looking to do a similar conversion myself after Christmas with my 10v AGZ. Any videos of it running or planning to do any meets? Would be good to see it.

wow, so clean!

my one's a mess most of the time.

im running the same charger, I think I started off with the same pulley set up as you, at 0.55 bar (8pi). im going up to 10psi just now with the 21 tooth small pulley.

have you got any more plans for it?

cool, that's the same as im currently running but my cooler is an ebay one, so not as tidy as it does a 180 degree turn to go back towards the throttle body.

what prep did you do for painting the rocker cover? and did you use high-temp paint on it? got mine sitting here and I might paint it before it goes back on the car.

i had it shot blasted then powder coated along with the charger housing and intake hoses, very hard wearing and not that expensive..
