ok, i dont doubt that a modded vr6 is fast. I do however call BS on the fact that you said it went from a 14.6 to a 12.8 with just a 75 shot....unless you added some other serious mods a 75 shot is not going to drop 2 seconds off your time......this isnt 2f2f

if you have any way to prove me wrong please do....

turbocro sucks, on the other hand glad to see things are better (from your gti vw wrx debate)

essveetee Last year I sold my project GTI, because it was taking up too much time with other things in my life (like everything). '83 GTI, cabby front end, euro bumpers, euro lights, interior restoration, 16v 'rocco rear suspension, 16v 'rocco rear disc brakes, MK3 10.1" front brakes, SS brake lines, 1.8 16v (bore out to 1.9 with custom JE forged pistons), Dellorto sidedraft carbs, and the list goes on. You don't even want to know how much I sold everything for...

I can't remember off the top of my head (not like I'm gonna buy it), but I believe the HPA kit runs around $20k for that kind of power. I'll save my $50k+, thanks. I'll just buy a couple MK2 GTI's, a MK3 GTI VR6, and a Corrado...and I'd have money to mod the hell out of them.
or combine them and make a vr6 turbo mk2 w/a corrado front end

keep an eye out in the vw classifieds, last year i missed the deal of a lifetime

mk1 rabbit, race engine, suspension, racing tires, the works, spare shell, 2 spare engines, bunch a crap from a local for $1,000 - still so pissed i missed it - just to mess around with and whip around the corners

yeah, but it's not cheap - once you add everything up, it'd probably cost about the same as a porsche

i dunno what the obsession is with awd, but unless im living up in the mountains, i'd rather keep my drivetrain losses to a minimum - different strokes, different folks

can i get a mr drummond pic?

YellowSVT yeah get the r32 and get a twin turbo installed, youll be able to outrun ferraris and porsches. were talkin like 3.3-4 second 0-60, that would be sweet.

SVT4ME Yeah, the anniversary edition, I'm not real up to speed on my VW tech, but I have to say that is a REALLY nice looking car. I just love the look of it, right down to the retro "Rabbit" badges.

2fast4u one of close friends has a gti 1.8t, and that is wicked fast, he put a short throw, blow off valva, and an intake, and now finished chipping it. the car is putting down more than 200 hp....i raced him with my zx-3 and ona str8 takes me, but i have to say handling wise through traffic i beat him everytime,,,,,,vr6 are fast but 1.8t are lighter and better for modding,,,i would take the 1.8 anniversary editon over the r32 any day. too much much money for that thing and only 250 hp,,,300 hp then maybe i would consider it
