Re: (slimvdub)

Thanks for the comments guys.
I actually thought about itbs but i just had the radiator modified and was too far along to go that route.
I highly recomend the vr6 in the rabbit ,handling is not as bad as people say but it could be im getting older and dont drive as crazy anymore

I have gotten some im's about the head.This is the 2nd head jarod from scch has done for me (1st was a 16v)both flow really well and made great dyno #s.He is a great guy and really knows his sh*t he is highly recomended by myself as well as others on here.
