Might happen, but not to the scale you're probably hoping for. My daughter will be driving soon, and the plans are her buying an 8v Jetta. Simply for the fact that I know so much about these cars and can fix just about everything cuffed, blind folded, and in a coma.
YOu guys give some great info....
I was going to go TT268 with the "Big Valve" and HD Springs upgrade and porting/polishing and all that...Head has been stripped, cleaned/blasted and flowed/pressure tested now ready for the grind ....I am certainly going with the TT276 +4* and maybe a snail down the road just so I can say I'VE DONE IT on an 8V .....
Question tho...C2 or TT chip?? I hear many say good and probably just as many saying bad about C2... I wanted to do M.S. eventually but its an OBDII head and I am probably going to DD this car then build a VRT I've had in my dreams a time or 2...
Thanks for the encouragement..you gentlemen are ALL doing GREAT things in the DUB WORLD !!!!
I think if it was marketed more as "intake manifold conversion KIT" it would be far more appetizing for the $700 (plus shipping price)...
and Lets be honest those 7 bills are a good amount of cash.
Anyone have any real dyno's that compare a car with a stock airbox compared to a intake like a Neuspeed P-FLO or a Eurosport coolflo?
In my 94, I have a Neuspeed top airbox set up to my SRI, very easy to make. Everything looks factory in the 94, I love the OEM+ look. Thinking of getting my SRI wrinklecoated black.
hmm IDK, i cant find the Eurotuner dyno, I think they dynoed the Eurosport intake? and it made like 5whp I recall; I wonder if they were doing that dyno with the hood open
this morning I decided...
also if anyone wants to buy this thing outright I'd probably do it, shoot me an offer thru PM

Why bother selling it? The car isn't rotting, which is a big plus. You probably won't find a cleaner VR6.
If you want a VR so bad, just buy a swap for ~1000 bucks. You could sell your motor/ecu/trans/subframes/suspension/etc to someone with an A2 looking for a swap, and that'd pay for most of the VR6 swap parts or wrecked VR6 swap car.
I have plenty of VR6 parts in my garage, I'm 99% sure I can piece together a complete OBD2 swap with the parts in there, along with a set of TT 264/260 VR cams and a few chips.
PS: Please don't advertise your FS ad in this thread, it isn't meant for that.
You want power, and you're looking into spending money on an SRI for 700 bucks..
You should just go Neuspeed S/C. You can find a good one in the classifieds for 1500. Sometimes even less. I bought mine new for 2500. But hey, it's worth it. You'll go from 110whp(what you have now, probably) to around 145whp with the 2.6 pulley. Neuspeed has dynos showing 135whp @ 6200 RPM on a stock S/C kit. So hey, maybe you'd make even a little more, like 150whp.
My dd GL probably has around 125whp, and it's not too bad. But I have a SRI.
Before that, my coupe had 160whp on a TT tune.
Then my GT with 135whp with an 02A.
Now, I'm at ~250whp+ with my GT, and loving every second of it. Boost is a very, very good option for the 8v.
