VR6 Turbo?

(1/2) > >>

Hessian:
how much work is it to throw a turbo into a 98 GTI VR6?

Spicoli:
There are a few kits out there which makes it easier... if you piece together the kit yourself it is definitely a timely process.

There are a few local vr6 turbos in CO... you might want to check the local RM forum on VWVortex to get advice from the guys who have done it.

I know Joel @ RS Motorsports has done a few, 303.432.8989

Hessian:
hey thanx for the info... i have another qustion. would i be better off to go with the 1.8T?

Spicoli:
Are you talking engine swap a 1.8T into a car with a VR6?

I do not know, but it seems like an engine swap would be A LOT more work.  Slapping a turbo, some plumbing and a controller (manual or software) seems like a lot less work.

Hessian:
well i am still in the market lookin to buy a GTI, i found one i think i want which is the vr6. just tryin to do my research and figure out my best option to throw my money at ya know
