Re: Might bew getting a 2000 Jetta GLX VR6, what kind of power potenital is there? (Max Rebo)

Why get a GLX if your going for power? The vr6 is 200lbs heavier than the 1.8t or 2.0 which means its the worse handeler of the bunch. If your constantly flooring it your gas mileage will be about the same as a 1990 Chevy Tahoe. People have spend $3500 on chip intake coilovers and tires only to run 14.4-14.6. Even if you did that youll get 200 crank hp and will never get close to 245ft torque. Do yourself a favor and get a 1.8t. Better handling, cheaper, better gas mileage, rock solid audi motor, and most of all upgradable. Many people are running 13's with chip/turboback exhaust and good tires. Check out http://www.18turbo.com/18t-quartermile.html . Honestly ther eis no reason to get a Vr6 right now except for the GLX features. Do yourself a favor and kill hondas for us! You can upgrade your turbo too! 3000 kit will get you deep in the 13s! The vr6 has torque but nothing compared to a modded 1.8t it will loose on hte highway and on the local streets. The only thing yull beat are hondas and acuras. If you want to play with the big boys and run 13s with minimal mods lets make the right choice!!!
