Why would you want to increase boost simply because of higher octane fuel? This is typically not done with the 1.8T, anyone with even the 93/100 octane program can tell you that it does not increase boost to go to race fule software. It simply advances timing.I even really see 30 psi being a reliable goal even on race gas

Can you explain how you can run higher boost with a higher octane of fuel? I am curious as to logic behind this.I was simply stating higher octane fuel makes it safer to try and run higher boost levels then normal
And also I do believe the Vagcom tool does not give you a RPM step by step indication of your exact A/F matched to exact RPM. I believe it gives you an average of the pull from start to finishing RPM.
Could be wrong though.
We were not talking about the stock fuel system here. You are correct, you would definately run lean at 21 psi to redline on the stock one, but you *might* be able to get away with like 15-16psi or so at redline with the stock fuel system.But I would be willing to bet a good amount of $$$$ on the stock 1.8T fuel system if you held 21psi from 2100 to redline you are running pretty lean
APR race programs do not increase boost, it simply advances timing.You stated that APR has race gas programs. What exactly does the race gas program do?

Anyhow, I have not actually dynoed my car yet. The dyno with a/f above is not mine, and also that is the Vag Com Block 120 dyno, and block 002 A/F chart. There are a few dynoes around though, I know of one in particular that is real close and cheap. It is called Seymore Performance and they are in Mechanicsburg, PA. They have a Dynojet Model 248C, and prices start at $50 for 3 pulls w/ wideband 02, plus only $5 for additional pulls after the first three. They also have hourly tuning rates of $75 per hour w/ wideband 02, plus $15 for each car they have to roll on and off the dyno if you bring multiple cars in for the hourly rates. You can call them at (717) 697-9763, or se their web page at www.seymoreperformance.com.
Where do you live? I have not seen you around before I don't think. I live in York, and work in Mechanicsburg.
