While writing this review, we are impatiently waiting the turn of this turbocharged Octavia to go on the dyno for its dyno test…!
The engine is fitted with a Garrett GT3071 turbocharger, strapped to a SPA exhaust manifold. The wastegate is a 38mm TiAL unit, the intercooler is made by Precision and the blow-off valve is of vent-to-atmosphere style.
For the engine to run reliably we have installed JE pistons and rods while the engine ECU will run on a Unitronic tune.
With 2.2 bar of boost pressure, this dyno run is expected to be very interesting! More from the car when we have the results from the dyno!
