Once it is tuned correctly and set up properly, it should be real close.
I know a guy who has a similar setup in a Scirocco, and he's still working on getting it dialed in, and getting used to driving it, and I think he's run a 13.1 so far...(help me out here Brian)?
And the car is totally streetable.

Easy 12's if its tuned properly. Oversteervw has a very similar setup except his motor is stock and he ran low 12's in an A2 golf and 11.93 with slicks.
You'll need a fuel rail to. Ross Machine makes a really nice one.
Scirocco 16V exhaust mainfold will not work with a turbo, you'll need a manifold to.

why will the scirocco 16v exhaust manifold not work?
Re: Tell me what you think (MK1_16VT)

Need a manifold to bolt the turbo up to.
I think its 8vturbo.com sells nice ones.
