We are up early and on our way to the dyno. Its 3 hours drive away so we should be tuning in just over 4 hours. Once there we will assess the Internet situation if its fast enough we will live stream some 1000+HP runs.

We have just met up with Rene. We will be tuning his VW later in the day. On his old tune Rene has managed a bet quarter mile time of 9.7 sec. We are going to be retuning for a bigger turbo and a worked head.

We are up and running on the Klassen-Motors dyno. First up Rene's VW.

Things are starting to get interesting here in Germany. After fixing a few small issues we have just run Renes Golf to 1035HP at 2.4 bar of boost.

As Ales motor is fresh Andre runs the car at varied light loads before commencing full power tuning.

Things got a little hot under the bonnet of Ales VW. Looks like the plenum burst causing the injectors to pump fuel directly under the car. One fire extinguisher later and we can inspect the damage

There is the culprit. A burst plenum. Damage aside from the plenum is minor.

Ales and his team have worked through the night and repaired the burst plenum. We hope to get his vW back on the dyno this afternoon
