I would have to agree. Nice build so far Bud! Keep up the great work! Keep us informed on how you like the MSD's? Thank you!

Best regards,

-Mike

I Will Mike,
Trying to reduce timing retard a bit at higher RPM on my tune hence HPFP and coil packs, the plugs will be inspected and regapped again when I do the coils. I plan on closing them down to .022" this time. The MSD's are spec'd for the 1.6T but when you cross reference the part numbers they match with the coil packs on our 2.0T, should really help with better spark.

I just changed my plugs yesterday to these: NGK Spark Plugs R2556G-9 NGK Racing Spark Plugs | Summit Racing

I really like them. Gap is already where it supposed to be too. Exhaust got louder for sure. I was running the HKS M45XL spark plugs. I like the NGK better. Gas mileage went up. Could be placebo effect but the exhaust got much louder. So.... Plus they look cool as $hit. They have a slanted ground strap and seems like it was tailor made for turbos. I don't see the increased cylinder pressure blowing the spark out on these.

Best regards,

-Mike

Those look awesome, if I'm not impressed with how the HKS are holding up or performing after regap I might look into a set of those ngk plugs

Thanks for sharing your build brother! Looks great and keep up the good work! So far - what have been your top 5 favorite mods?

The custom 6 map is the exact reason I didnt get a jb4 - too tempting to play with and too much time I would spend trying to create something I dont fully understand. For those that do understand it - like you - what a great selling point. Eager to hear more about your tuning experience with jb4 and the different maps!

Peace,
-JE

Thanks JE,
Top 5 mods is a tough choice, I'll probably second guess my choices in 5 minutes lol. In no particular order I'd say: JB4, DP, intercooler, intake, wheels/tires.

MSD coils finally came in. Regapped plugs to 0.022" and installed the new coils. While I had the hood up I took the time to disable the sound generator under the windsheild. Noticeable noise level difference in the cabin from disabling the generator. Much quieter and more pleasant in normal/eco less drone and unwanted engine bay noise. In sport/N the car feels just as loud but I'm hearing more exhaust and can still hear and distinguish what's going on under the hood without the pumped in audio. Coils and plugs make the car feel a bit peppier feels smoother higher in the rev range. Haven't done any logged pulls yet, the numbers will tell the real difference.

Finally had a chance to log pulls in maps 0,1, and 2 again. After regapping plugs from .025" to .022" and installing the msd coils the car is running much better and pulling less timing. Prior to the change I was seeing timing corrections of up to 4.5*. After the change the car isn't correcting more than 3.0* all the way to red line. Graphs of log 1 and 2 prior to change and logs 0,1, and 2 after change attached. If anyone is interested in the csv files with the raw numbers I'm happy to share.

@QuasiSweetLew What kind of IAT's are you getting when the outside temp is 78-82F and you do 4-6 pulls?

-JE
Haven't had temps that high this season yet where I'm at in the North East but they always drop to within 10* above ambient when the car is under boost. Had a nice long Sunday drive today ambient is around 70* just putting around heat soak will bring temps into the 80s and 90s once you get into boost they quickly drop back to the high 70s. The snorkle, closed box CAI, and forge intercooler make a huge difference keeping temps in check.

Thank you for this. Appreciate it. I was wanting to compare someone's findings with that of my own.

You’d be better off finding someone in the southwest region to compare results with. Ambient conditions are varied from region to region. Such, affects engine operating temps and overall performance.
YEA YOU ARE RIGHT @RedVN ! As soon as he said he was in the Northeast I though oh crap!
