alright guys i'm getting back into the vw scene.. used to have a mk3 golf but sold it and i'm planning to buy another vw..a 94-98 jetta... well the question i have at hand is what would you guys choose...a turbo 2.0 or a vr6 (will probably turbo but not any time soon....money..) well see i can get a 2.0 jetta for cheap and have money left over to turbo it..or i can get a vr6 jetta now but stay very lienent on mods because of the overall price of a vr6 jetta and how much it costes for a mod on this engine... i love both engines and just want your inputs. the turbo will be faster obviously off the the start but if i turbo a vr6 i know i will smoke a 2.0 turbo...it's just that a vr6 is a very expensive engine and i know i will turbo it one day i just don't know if i have the patience for it... including parts for the vr6 is like triple the price it costes for a 2.0... but like everyone knows the vr6 is a beast...and max potential is a question too..like the vr6 will be at close to 300 hp with t3/t4 turbo set up at 9 pds.. (and that is not even maxed out) and the 2.0 will be at 210 with the same set up... (maxed out) so overall max potential and power is a question too...what do you guys think 2.0t and have good power from the start but limited overall or a vr6 slower now but faster (alot) later... these plans are gonna take place very soon so your input will be very helpful and please no search inputs...ughhh how annoying.. i did search but there is no question i've seen this specific...thanks

i'm also worried about reliability and max output... i know the vr6 tends to run hotter then usual, i know it will be even worst with turbo, what have you guys done to overcome this problem?? i was thinking oil cooler and better radiator???? plus max output is a issue, i know with a vr6+turbo+lsd+clutch=12 sec.... to get 12 sec in the 2.0 you have to do internal work to get it running reliable... so what you guys think???

vr6. ask the same question in the 2.0 forum. i saw a 1.8t complete for 2 grand in the classifieds. of course...youcould save even more money by putting a vr6 in an a2 car which from what i hear is like a 13 sec car with a stock vr6 cuz they are lighter than an a3/mk3. hmmm.
