1968 vw variant tube chassis drag car nill be tested next year with the nitrous motor out of the bug using a s40 pro then over next winter the 2720cc methanol turbo vw motor will be run using a s80 ...lots of fun and expense awaits :lol:

would you like some more stickers? :lol:

I very much look forward to seeing that run, it just looks mad.

by why the original flat 4? is it a class regulation of sorts?

yes much bigger ones for the wall ;) I'm a vw man so making the most out of the motor is a big part of it .the chassis setup is purely for chasing numbers as safely as pos.next year it'll be on the gas with a little motor .then the 650rwhp monster will be unleashed ..when i can raise the funds for the new ecu and other parts to finish it :lol:
but all going well it should run well into the 9s on the small motor.... :?:

Danny,
Are you using DTA on the nitrous motor?
Just looking at setting mine up. Got dirty Nige old engine minus heads.

yes mate i use a wet kit on my motor i don't think the s40 can do a dry system? its a simple setup with a basic progressive controller and a rpm window switch to turn it on at 4k and off at 8.2k works very well although i think you can us ecu as a window switch if setup ? but alex will be able to confirm that info?

I have a wet system already. I just need to move it all into the new ecu.
Currently run it on a full throttle switch but might bring it in more progressively.

This project looks awesome - I'll be interested to see how you control the nitrous w/ S40/S80

the nitrous controller will only use the ecu to turn on at WOT and above 4k the rest of it is using the nitrous controller in effect the ecu will be a window switch for it and also not trigger it until the 2 step is turned off .
