    Was great to attend this show again! No club stand this year but we will be looking to amend this in 2019. Here is a few taster pictures album to be added to gallery soon just having technical issues. This is a one stop event over 3 days with something for everyone. From gentlemen's grooming to freestyle BMX specialists, swanky split screen cocktail bars to family entertainment in the event tents! Without a shadow of a doubt the best event on the calender, if you only attend one show next year I suggest you make it Leeds. https://www.vwfestival.co.uk/

    I've just shod my Highline with Toyo Proxy TR1s. Quite a soft tyre but good grip. My old Tomcat Turbo would eat a set of Toyo front tyres in 2500 miles!!!

    Hi, I am breaking my Corrado, part of which is my tuned engine, with VW motorsport VSR, Big valve head, Shrick (268) cams, lightened crank pulley, Wavetrac LSD. I have all the associated vacuum work for the VSR, which was fitted by Vince at Stealth racing many years ago. I have not yet taken any parts off the car and looking to gauge interest for the engine whole, or whether to break the engine as well. The Engine has done 180k miles, it had done around 60k when I bought the car in 2001. It is a strong engine, the big valve head was new at around 100K. Please get in touch if you are interested in any / all of the above. I am based near Knutsford in Cheshire . Kind Regards Richard 07720837062

    VW Golf Mk2 VR6 Turbo RWD Rear Engine, Rear Wheel Drive, 300BHP, Track/Race Originally built by AW Tracksport this unique Mk2 Golf has a VR6 engine mounted in the rear of the car driving the rear wheels, there is a fire wall between the engine and front seats. The fuel tank along with the pumps and swirl pot are situated at the front under the bonnet. The engine is currently running at 0.7bar/10psi and already reaching 299bhp with 301lbft torque and 278bhp at the wheels, this was the first map and dyno run after the build/running in period and is capable of achieving a lot more boost should you wish. It is kept cool with the radiator fitted at the front end with a powerful electric fan which comes on automatically or can be controlled from a switch from dash. There are also cooling ducts feeding outside air into the engine bay. I'm told from the previous owner the car weighs just under 1000kgs with the lightweight doors fitted, however I have no proof of this, it is a very light car to drive and I believe the statement to be true. The car is rear wheel drive and has no ABS or traction control. A standard 2.8 vr6 has 174bhp from factory, after installing the mods and a running in period of gentle driving I thought it sensible to test the car on dyno with a low boost setting rather than jumping straight in with a high boost setting. I think the 300bhp produced was fantastic at low boost especially being such a lightweight car. Like I say it is capable of taking a lot more boost with the internals currently fitted, resulting in a lot more bhp, I simply don't have the time to take it further. Engine: VR6 2.8 Hydra Nemesis EMS Wossner Forged Pistons 81.5mm bore, 8:1 Ratio Uprated head gasket Turbonetics T3 Turbo Apexi Boost Controller Intercooler mounted in roof Greddy Blow Off Valve Upgraded SS Coolant Pipe 440cc Green Injectors Modified RX7 back box quiet exhaust currently fitted but comes with loud straight pipes if you prefer. Gearbox & Clutch: Quaiffe 6 Speed Close Ratio Straight Cut Gearbox Lightweight flywheel Helix Motorsport 6 Paddle Clutch, also comes with Sintered Double Clutch replacement for more of a track set up. Spare standard VR6 gearbox comes with the sale Wheels/Suspension/Brakes: Manual Steering Rack Wilwood Break Bias Pedal Box Wilwood discs and callipers all round. Eibach Coilovers Banded Steel Wheels Front Tyres 205/40/16 like new Rear Tyres 245/35/16 like new Interior: Full Roll cage Bucket Seats 6 Point Sabelt Harnesses AIM Dash Pod Fire Extinguisher plumbed in Outer: Currently has standard Mk2 doors with manual windows, also comes with light weight doors with Perspex windows for track use. Lightweight GRP Bonnet. Lightweight GRP Boot Door. GRP Wide Arches from HRengineering. Intercooler Mounted in roof for maximum coverage. This is not a show car, previous owner used it for track days and I used it on the B roads so as a result has scratches, marks and stone chips form use, there are no major rust spots or corrosion of bodywork, underneath the car is very good condition. I have listed everything I can think of honestly and will be sad to see it go, hopefully to someone that has more time for it. Overall this car is ready for action straight away or ideal for someone to push further, a fast car for track or road use. Car will need to be collected by trailer as currently SORN It has covered less than 300 miles since last MOT. Any more questions by text or whatsapp is best: 07835600626 Car is advertised elsewhere.

    Forgot to say, there seems plenty of 2ltr turbos about but a V6 Eos is hard to come by as they don't come up for sale on a regular basis lol...be great to get there with mine and get in the mix with other VR6 VWs.

    I think I'll be able to plan my leave so I can get there. A good mate of mine from Sunderland but living in Hartlepool goes to a few VW meets (mostly campers) so I'll drag him along for the weekend...he has an old but in great condition original split screen California edition camper van and a nearly new T5 camper van also a California.

    Cheers mate, Apologies for the late reply, I'm a Merchant Seaman so I don't have a phone signal most of the time when I'm at sea. I'll deffo be there if I'm not away at the time. It's quite rare among the V6 Eos cars too as it also has the "Individual" trim and I think there are less than 20 registered in the UK with the engine and trim combo lol. Best Regards, Lee.

    Shrick manifold plus 268

    You can buy a conversion plate mate to convert it to obd2. Somewhere on here is a write up on how to do it. 👍

    Dont bother with the 32 Conversion lol. Well its up to you. You benefit more with the VR6 with Cams etc being a 12v, where the 32 being 24 has less room to play with plus with the engine already having the VVT set up. Personally get the VR re-built and slap a charger on there and you will see fab arse figures. 10Psi plus, Power to weight ratio, just have a think. Just finished helping my mates VR with a V1 Charger, had a 8PSi pulley set up, and achieved 1bar of boost which is not normal at all, I think it was 320hp and was still climbing. Uncle Vince had limited the Rev Counter at 6K or would have gone bang..lol There are options bud.. Just have a think.. I should have kept my old VR. MJ

    She scrubs up alright for her age. I wouldn't mind an engine rebuild and supercharging it, that's the long term plan... just the money side of the plan that's the issue haha
