    last year I posted a few pics of my car when it was an NA vr6, and people seemed to like it.

    here's a few new pics..

    I dyno'd it with a 3 bar FPR, and it put down 221 whp and 207 ft/lbs tourque..

    after that, I realized I was supposed to have a 4 bar FPR, and I popped one in, and took it for a drive, and it felt a bit quicker via the butt dyno.. but I didn't get a chance to run it again..

    should be about 230 at the wheels according to the kit specs.

    sorry, I lost my dyno sheet..

    beautiful car man! very nice and clean...i also own a v-dub ('89 golf gti) and ive been contimplating either a vr6 or a 1.8t swap...however ive been told that due to its weight, and it being directly over the front wheels, the vr6 tends to make the car plow when pushed in the twisties...is it tru?

    unless you are going to be racing this car on the track.. you will have no problem ripping hard through the twisties..

    You could set up the suspension properly, so that if you did decide to track it, it would work just fine.

    I think thats an old myth created by jealous 16v owners who didn't want more people swapping vrs :bigthumb:
