yeah all the metal in my head think it will hurt somehow
Can we chance this thread to "bens cab" now please?
pod fever is here 4 days and counting lol
so whos up for a can of whoop ass
would it be a slipper moment if i said im debating a 16vt or vr6t conversion in my new mk1
wasn't someone selling a vr6 setup a while back?
what happened, u get whipped or something?
nope got a mk1 tintop that needs to be turned into a 12 second car lol
Hmmmm...... the debate kinda got spoilt by a lot of BS from HIGHLINE, thankfully he seems to have fallen off the radar now. Fact is, 2 more cylinders + 1 more litre, is always going to be in your favour. If you have a lot of money, then the VR6T route is going to outperform a 1.8 20vT, simply from having 1x the displacement. BUT, it will cost a lot of money (thankfully helped by the weak $), more so than a tuned 1.8T. Its a close call once you factor in limited funds, too. As you know I'm not totally unfamiliar with the VR6 engine, and Mk1s, and I honestly believe a supercharger or turbocharger will not fit, not without significant bodywork modifications (such as cut & relocated chassis leg, or bulkhead mods).
For a drag racer, nitrous is a cheaper and more sensible route to take (on either engine).
my god highline sounds like a bit of a billy bull ****er to be fair!
A Good Nitrous setup and a good pair of Hoosier or M/T Slicks. A good set of rubber will save you 1.5 sec on the 1/4 and thats been proven this year on the strips.
So what happened in the end?
thread revival here after reading this thread:
