fiiting the 130 turbo will have no gain without a remap.Hi, I have an offer on parts from a smashed PD 130 golf, and am looking into fitting the bigger intake piping, including the MAF housing to my PD 115. Has anyone fitted this to a standard / remaped car without getting remaped again?
As the diameter of the MAF housing is different, does this mean there will be a greater air volume, but lower velocity, therefore the air meter will read wrong? Surely this would then under fuel the car and reduce performance??
Any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated!
Cant say i have noticed this, the car feels the same with me if its full or if its only me driving.one thing i notice is the 115 remap really feels hills and a full car load. when driving a mates 130 remapped it doesnt feel the extra weight.
thats due partly to the 115's smaller turbo but mainly the inlet manifold/pipework (as aRd said the 110/115 inlet manifold is really small)
