    There are a few variants, here are some; think it's missing the 2.8 24v from the 4mo though

    Nice to know someone carried the torch for what was a very good car. Life overtook me and I found myself with a lower compression car and a part turbo conversion sat in the garage with no time to spare.
    The decision to sell wasn't easy but felt like a weight of responsibility lifted when I did.
    If she is up and running it would be amazing to see if it is still being lovingly cared for.

    VR6Pete reacted to RBPE in 2.8 24v vr6 turbo - limitation of standard vr stroke?   
    The usual over and undersquare engine variances really that's all, all these engines are designed as low revving torque monsters like most VAG engines. You can make 600+hp on any of them really, read the description of this for example, not sure of the hp but the times would suggest a fair amount, likely 700+ as stock on a 12v, other engines pretty much similar in terms of durability;
     
     
     
    Generally on oem bore/stroke peak hp is around the oem 6800rpm limit, even 1000hp ones with an 8500rpm limit have peak power at 6800rpm due to the fundamental dynamics from what I've seen, so no need for high revs for power, just gears. Bigger ports etc in R32 would ultimately flow more, same with porting/polishing/big valves etc but as said, a lot is in tuning and working out where you want power, even big ports can affect low end for the top... so 600+ is achievable on any, you want more low end, displacement increase, can affect max revs obv given over/undersquare changes, but where's the spool on your turbo, what power band are you happy with and so on? That vid you would think they're not too bothered about low end then for drag so no need to run low end keeping it in high revs and boost, unless he uses it daily in which case turning down the boost would help at the low end and spool......lot's to weigh up!
     
    Best bet would be to look at the logs/dyno plots of any and their respective set ups, plenty about on net and here in places.
     
    Also, if new to VR's, think low revving torque monsters & learn how to change gear faster!  7500rpm/1000hp/stock 02M example;

    VR6Pete got a reaction from cactusjackslade in Rolling Road Day 2017   
    I think the problem here is that there is no date yet. 
     
    Its hard for people to commit / plan without it. 
     
    We've never had an unsuccessful rolling road day and always hit the required minimum numbers. 
     
    Carl, just book a day a month from now and promote the event  here and Facebook and other usual places.

    Start was a fail. Knock didnt go away at all. It actually got very worse. Ended up getting a motor from a part out. Took me 4.5 hours to get the motor stripped down, to get my motor stripped down, and block removed from car. Now im working on cleaning the head and block prepping them both for all my good parts. Will update when i get another chunk done
