      We get alot of cool cars and things we like to share with the community. This thread will be our spot in the VWVortex community to share our projects and daily jobs.


      For those of you who do not know us, here is a little overview... USP Motorsports is a Volkswagen, Audi, and Porsche vehicle performance and repair facility, located in Coral Springs, Florida. We have been in business since 2001 building, tuning, and repairing these vehicles. We regularly perform a variety of operations on VW, Audi, and Porsche vehicles including turbo system upgrades, fuel systems, clutch jobs, maintenance, and engine repairs on both water cooled, and air cooled models. Our facility is six thousand square feet, with three Bend Pac vehicle lifts, a Dynojet 224x dynamometer, Miller Electric MIG and TIG welders, Hunter Road Force GSP 9700 high speed tire balancing machine, and a vehicle alignment machine. Our shop area, where vehicles are serviced, is a sealed air conditioned facility which is cleaned and maintained on a daily basis. In the shop, all of our technicians are experienced and ASE certified. We also have a full showroom with customer lounge and display cases. Here at USP Motorsports, we also develop some of our own parts including brake lines, exhaust system components, engine dampers (in conjuction with Fluidampr), intercoolers, and more.

      Some of our records
      USP Motorsports has been setting the bar in the community since 2001 and we continue to do so today. Our goal is to exceed expectations for vehicle service and performance on Volkswagen, Audi, and Porsche platforms. This is accomplish this through dedication, attention to detail, and passion for the industry. We also put our knowledge to the test with the race inspired vehicles we build.

      Over the years, USP Motorsports has developed quite a reputable name in the racing community and has managed to accumulate a handful of domestic and international records. Currently, USP holds the record for the quickest and fastest Audi in North America with our B5 chassis S4 powered by a turbo VR6 engine transplant. The record was set during a regional drag racing event at Palm Beach International raceway running a 9.7 @ 147.

      USP also currently sets the standard for the Volkswagen community as well, housing the worlds quickest, fastest, and most powerful 2.0T FSI! Check out our 605whp dyno vid or the record setting 11.0 @ 131 quarter mile pass. We were also the first in the states to run a 10 second 1/4 mile pass in a MKIV 1.8T, and the second in the world to run a 9 second 1/4 mile pass in a Volkswagen, in our retired MK3 VR6 Turbo Jetta.

      In the Porsche world, we have marked a milestone by building the world’s only Porsche 996 Turbo to trap over 200mph on a stock engine in a standing mile run. This was accomplished through our 750 wheel horsepower and 700+ wheel torque Porsche 996 Turbo. We also have a 10.28@140mph quarter mile pass under our belt in this 996 as well. This vehicle is fueled by a unique USP Motorsports Ethanol E85 conversion kit.

      We mounted, balanced, and installed some Matte Black Team Dynamic wheels on a MK4 VW GTI today. They add a nice aggressive look to the car and I think they look awesome! Opinions?

      Heres some more VW love... We did a complete air-ride suspension conversion kit on this MK6 VW GTI. Don't worry, the power plant was not forgotten... Its also equipped with APR stage 2 software and APR turbo-back exhaust. Enjoy!

      Not me. They don't fit the lines/shape of the car. They look out of place. Maybe it's a color contrast (white/red).

      I'm with this guy, and its odd because I love the 1552 tarmac wheels, just not on this car for some reason. Whats equally odd is that I usually hate huff's, but they look pretty damn sweet with the dropped bags and bright red paint on the mk6.. and I'm not even an airbag lover either

      Don't get me wrong....I like the wheels, just not on that car. Maybe if the wheels were a different color?

      That person would be me. Shoot me some feedback... You may comment on the HDR effect in all of the pictures. These are 10 second editing shots. Nothing more. I think that effect looks better then the dull boring picture that comes directly from the camera.

      Why is a bolt missing? Unless that is my old MKVI GTI? Dealer stripped it out.

      EDIT: NVM.

      First problem are the dull and boring pics coming from the camera in the first place What kind of gear are you using? Even an entry level DSLR with some decent glass will take amazing pics. Just gotta remember a few things when taking the pics! If you are shooting in RAW already, I'd be happy to mess around with a few pics if you want..

      Im shooting a D200. I am fully capable of taking a decent shot, time is just the issue. Unless it is a necessity, pictures are done quickly. I appreciate the feedback though!

      I fourteenth the "stop the HDR madness" comments. Do we really need to see some old mechanic, balancing a tire in HDR?
