it ran a 15 flat with none of that...so, anything better will either show up in your traps, or your 1/4 time depending on how well you hook I up.

I would say your default time should be somewhere in the high 14s... otherwise you're not driving it right.

I'm aiming for 14 flat
My biggest problem is I'm 6'3" 220lbs....I've never done a 1/4 before, but I'm confident in my driving ability....I want to make a time and maybe mike can set a time cause he's light...what do ya say suprf1y?

you'll need a lot more power for a 14.0x.... hate to say it, but ain't gonna happen...

be happy with a 14.9x.... it's gonna take some effort to pull that off if you've never 1/4 miles before

How could only .100 of a second be gained over your time on a stock gti

I guess I am trying to say with a pro driving it what time would be expected. =)

Your defiantly underestimating how hard it is to run a 14 flat, you'll understand after you take a few runs. Especially in a front wheel drive car. 14.5 would be a very good (and still ambitious) target.

my guess is your first run ends up in a low 16 sec pass...and it will get better from there. Then it will get worse again, then get better. 14.5 is not an easy feat. unbolt the header from the exhaust and gut the whole car as much as possible for a couple extra tenths.

Some good and bad news...
I got my performance 3tech head in and 222/365 cams in and tuned by the guys at MTmotorsport. Good news is the car goes very hard.
The bad news is I am getting a TON of blowby and I am losing a lot of oil through the hose on the valve cover. I temporarily have it running to a water bottle. It was doing this previously but not at bad. So today I did a compression test which I got 235/235/210/psi 1-4.
I replaced the dipstick because I broke the other one trying to force it in more because it kept popping out. Also I took out the PCV valve and cleaned it with brake cleaner. Went for a spin....still crap.
So I guess its time for rings....
I can tell when I am leaking oil out the top because when I rev hard especially through 3rd the lifters get really loud as they are not getting enough oil.....
Is there a possibility of my felpro head gasket limiting flow through the galleries?

Here's some pics out around my place

And a video of it idling with Mikes 222\365

If your getting that high of compression , then your rings are in top notch shape!

You should pull your valve cover and check to make sure the baffle in the top of it is installed properly. You might also want to try a different engine oil. Perhaps yours is foaming too much. A lot of high revving will also cause oil to come out of the valve cover.

I'm using Mobil 1 10w30 synthetic
How do you repair baffles if that's the issue?
It loses way more oil than it should,so much it covered the underside of my hood came out the hood and ran down my fender

Well the baffle is a factory piece that is bolted to the underside of the valve cover in the pcv valve area.

Also check to make sure your car isn't over filled with oil. If it is, it can cause this too.

100% it's your rings. You're getting big time blowby, and not seeing it until you hit higher RPM. It's a very common problem with G series motors. Run a catch can until you can fix it.

Replace the rings with quality made in Japan pieces, scuff the bore with a scotchbrite pad (hones will open up the bore more - definitely what you don't want) and as long as the bores are decent, I guarantee that the problem will go away.

The car sounds great!

Not a 100%. There is a chance that ignition timing is to advanced and this kind of blowby can occur. Had similar issue with my car - advanced it by 4 degrees and there was huge oil blowby (without knock). Went back to max 30deg and there is no sign of oil in breather tube. I have 270@0,1mm and 9mm lift cams in stock engine.

What happens when you advance the timing? It increases cylinder pressure, and your rings could not handle it because they're worn.
You need new rings too.

My advice to anyone putting new heads on and aggresive cams would be to do your bottom end regardless of how healthy you THINK it is....
I am putting over sized pistons on now.
Do it right the first time...these engine are all aging

Yes and no. In this case cylinder pressure was high when piston was traveling up, therefore this happened. There was no detonation.
I improved intake and exhaust, high rpm range works much better but no oil in breather. Usually if you have high CR, you find knock before you reach this state. My CR is low for this kind of cam.

i know this is a little off topic here but are you running the genie exhaust with your setup? if so, i would definitely go with a 2 ID" exhaust. with your high compression and massive cams a 2" exhaust is what you need. the genie exhaust is choking the top end for sure, even the turbo style muffler thats on it is not optimal. when you go to the track unbolt the exhaust from the header and you'll see what im talking about. there is a noticeable difference up top. Get MT to build you one with a new high flow cat and proper muffler/resonator.
