Intake

Post by NabbyM32 » Tue Feb 06, 2018 1:50 pm

Hi Guys

I have a 74kw 1.9tdi polo.

I plan to do software in this month, however was thinking of doing intake and DP one time but i have read that a intake on a diesel wont make much difference.

Any help??

Hi, a intake doesn't help and don't be fooled into buying that eighty6 automotive coz that's a waste of time. From what I hear a down pipe does not make a difference on a stock turbo. Just go with your software and later on a intercooler

Very true. Downpipe only if you go BT on a stock turbo it makes no difference. Just SW and FMIC decat and your sorted.

That's correct. I have a decat with the stock exhaust. I just have a fmic with software nothing aggressive. Has enough power and still extremely light.

Do your software and go from there, I had software, a decat and the larger PD160 intake pipe leading to the airbox on my 9n Polo. Software made the biggest difference and is the best value for money.

Thanks guys, appreciate the help.

Think ill just stick to the SW , Decat and FMIC for now.

I still want the car to be reliable as it is a daily.

You'll be surprised how intake temperatures rise due to the SMIC's in these cars after a few hard runs.

Yeah a fmic will help drop temp on that stock turbo..

But i doubt kp39 turbos produce enough boost to heat soak the smic. If im not mistaken the max tuned boost on a kp39 is around 1.3-1.4bar. Thats more or less stock boost on a sportline and the coolers seem to be the same size (havnt really compared). Hence i said, u dont really "need" a fmic

Run logs and find out, we did it a while back when I had a PD130 and @dazza had a PD160, both with software and the PD130 heat soaked the SMIC very quickly.

I know that a PD130 heat soaks like crazy. Thats a billet wheel bv39 with 550cc injectors - i wont even compare it to a 74kw.

OP has a 74kw/PD100 = kp39 turbo. Max tuned boost on that turbo is around the same as stock boost on a pd130. I agree that IAT's are better with the fmic, but on a mildly tuned 74kw its not needed - well just an opinion..
