    I'm running it through the break in period so it has not been properly tuned yet, I will share once done though

    Any tuning vids or dyno graphs?

    Went a bit over budget but not silly.

    I like that the exhaust is still an exhaust, not just a roughly bent pipe that mostly fits.
    Keen to see how it all goes for ya
    Did it stay within budget?

    Engine, exhaust and coolant in. Next is FMIC and first startup.

    Now it's got Crower 272 cams, Eagle H beam rods, 2.1L stroke, 'Monster 16g' TD05 Turbo; so on and so forth.

    Also, have helped build 4, from shell-up.
    Another few I was involved with:

    I also tune.

    Why do you ask?

    You start to see positive pressure as low as 1100rpm, 5psi by 1300rpm and 14psi at about 2.1k

    A TD06SL-20G comes on at 3.2k on a stock 2L, so if you're only seeing peak boost on your TD04 by 3k, you need some assistance.
    Double check your data logs, or have a strong word with your tuner.
    Have you ever driven a WRX?

    Here, I have a VE chart for you.

    ^Ok thanks for that will look!

    Nice front mount!!!

    2014 models should have the updated engine with the stronger rods, under the plastic cover you will have a silver sticker with the engine serial, G4FJxxxxxxxxx... What's the next letter on yours?

    If it has the 6 speed manual box that's fine and if your rods are the updated design if you want a basic tune up to 220-230BHP then it's perfectly safe.

    My intercooler arrived:

    Intercooler has now entered the country so it should start coming together. All balancing work on the engine is complete
    2014 Kia Pro_cee'd GT, its a rare car here in Australia so dont want to blow it up. I know the GDI was around 4 years prior but I consider it gen1. So really apprehensive about modding it. I think a tune could be ok but from what I read Kia spent a long time getting it all tuned for conditions here, so not much left on the table from what I understand.

    Do you know what stock boost level is? Bent rod at 17psi doesn't fill me with confidence.

    Keep us posted on your build, love to see what a built GDi can do, next question is limit of gearbox

    I have the same motor in my daily, been looking to mod it but figured too highly strung to mod.

    Will be really interested to see what a built GDi can do


    TD04 come on 3K, these GDi motors use twin scroll turbos with direct injection, get 80% torque at 1500rpm, really useful around town.

    And thats why it breaks rods, even WRX's TD04's don't come on till 1800RPM.
    If you clip the rear side, when you recore to a larger one, the rods would probably be OK for a long time.
    You want to see near zero boost below 2k.

    Raised boost levels to around 17-18 PSI.
