      Can I move my maf to a charge pipe or does it have to be on a intake side? Small room to work and I'm trying to find a easy solution before going crazy on the firewall..

      Looks like a sweet build. What size turbonetics do you have? Also the maf should be (ideally) no more than 12 inches from the intake manifold, but on a turbo setup I have seen many people run them further down without issues, just a matter of if you wiring reaches that far, but DEFINITELY don't move it to the non intake side as the MINIMAL temp difference will be enough to make a BIG difference in tuning and power.

      The MAF sensor should be on the intake side, schematically immediately following the air filter (e.g., before the PCV return pipe).

      Also, depending on the tune you go with you are going to have to upgrade you MAF to the 4" one used by the 4.2L v8 in the Audis, from a parts shop online they are $40. Junkyard probably $20

      Check with them then if it isn't stated on the tune itself, i know on the Unitronic and similar want the 4" MAF. I've seen them with stock maf and idle is weird. Just a $20-$40 fix solves the problem and opens up better air.

      Ya np, have fun with the build, hope u are doing a head spacer or new pistons to lower compression, had a few budies who didn't and their 300whp+ builds didn't last long.

      Yes, I did the head spacer. I also have a 75 shot wet system(zex)hooked up to that motor hopefully everything holds.

      Arp head studs, new pistons rings, new valve springs, head spacer, medium boost, good clutch and flywheel, and catch can is what really keeps the motor and trans tight. 300+whp all day everyday with a good tune from C3 and maybe a mild adjustment from your local tuner just to dial it in. The people who did it right on VWVortex kept their build running for a long time and at low maintenance costs. Good Luck my friend, have fun, and enjoy.

      Give you guys an idea where I am with this build, today I will be installing the oil return line. I have a feeling intercooler pipes are going to give me a problem..
