      I saw his car at staggered, it's really clean. I also saw you putting some huuuge brakes in your trunk, upgrade?

      Thank you. Yes, grabbed a set of Brembos from a guy. I only need the rear setup. Going to put the fronts up for sale at some point in the near future.

      Fitment junkies and scene queens step back. This one is for the gear heads.
      The article started out with promise and then devolved into the scenester drivel. There is one shot of the engine bay and no technical discussion on the actual swap itself.



      But I really like the car, 3.6L swap and OEM+ freshness without being ruined by stance or any other garbage fad.

      haha, the 3.2 was already sold to someone else. The DSG is going into another project car down at IMS.

      Awesome car you have built there!

      Love everything about it, though I think I would like it even more with snowflakes..

      Thank you sir.

      @ snowflakes. I'm not sure they'd clear the brake setup I have, and I'd have to be lower to pull them off. Good looking wheel but not for my application.

      There is actually a ton more torque in the 3.6 motor because of the FSI. In 3rd gear I was leaving R32s behind on the dragon who were in 2nd gear out of corners.

      Edit for additional info: A turbo R32 from HPA was not able to catch or pass me from a 10 mph to 120 mph. it's not exactly slow. He was surprised and rather annoyed.
      Gotcha

      Awesome. Didnt VW say they weren't going to use the 3.6 because it wouldn't fit? Looks like you guys managed. Nice job.

      Been watching this build, and have been i love with it since. Being a 3.6 passat woner I cna appreciate the characteristics of this motor in all aspects. I can only imagine how it feels in a smaller car and with the 6spd.

      Can you give me the lowdown on the exhaust setup? I am assuming you are using the stock passat downpipes with 4 cats, and then it merges to a r32 exhaust somewhere down the middle? Any work done to the manifolds?

      Also, if you havent already swapped to the all black fixed position intake manifold found on late BLV's and I think all bws's, DO you know what type of gains you might receive? its the same manifold that also comes on the euro r36

      and those seats..... Id like to see some driving videos if you have any. fly bys, ANYTHING to hear/see this car under load.

      We are in the process of working out the kinks on the new black single length manifold. Will have more details this weekend.

      As for the exhaust, right now we are using the 3.6 headers into the stock 3.2L cats and stock catback. That is all going to be changed next week with high flow cats and a larger diameter exhaust.

      Here is a video for you of what it currently sounds like though.
      Cold Start:


      Cold start, warmed up and WOT:

      IIRC the 3.6 is actually a few pounds lighter than the 3.2.

      correct?
      Engineers do it better.

      correct 10-15 lbs I think, I dont remember the exact figure,


      thanks for the info on the exhaust. I contacted UM about getting a tune made fo rmy wagon, and they told me your car was in there getting the manifold swapped on (my car came with it from the factory, 2008 model year) So if it is the better manifold, this will excited me for obvious reasons. Please keep me posted on what gains if any you see from the new exhaust setup.

      and thanks for the videos. Ive listened to them a few times already

      You're welcome for the videos. I'll definitely keep you posted. Hopefully Jeff will have time to play with the tuning this weekend on his way to wunderwagens or whatever that show in PA is.

      The new exhaust will be there the majority of the gains are. The stock 3.2 exhaust is shown to be restrictive on the 3.2. The 3.6 moves a bit more air on top of that, so we should see some pretty nice power increases with the new exhaust. I'd love to just kiss 300awhp while remaining NA.

      judging by some of the #'s r36's make overseas after tuning and minor exhaust work. You could get there depepnding on how much magic Jeff makes. they like this motor a lot more overseas than they do here, and it's a shame. Well im anxious to watch this car develop, well done.

      So subtle yet so powerful.

      I will be watching
