      Last weekend we attended the East Coast Volkswagen Golf R event, in association with TrackDaze, at Summit Point Raceway in WV. Volkswagen invited us to bring the BFG MaxR to experience a fun filled track day even with many enthusiasts in the community. The field mainly consisted of Volkswagen Golf Rs, R32s as well as MK5/MK6 GTI and GLIs. VWVortex had their Beetle on display and VWoA had their classic beetle as well. One of our customers even had a Beetle with a 3.6L FSI VR6, which we swapped in for them, and it sounded amazing!

      Take a look at the video and feel free to browse our photo gallery.

      I have some photos on my computer laptop. Essentially it was a brand new Beetle 2.0T that's now running 3.6L FSI V6 engine. The engine only comes in an automatic IIRC, so converting it to a front wheel drive 6 speed was a bit of a challenge, however we were able to pull it off.

      Everything in the car works like OEM, meaning you start it up and drive w/o a christmas tree of warning lights. It's on the factory ECU and is running our MK6 GTI RSC catback exhaust system.

      The suspension and brakes were also upgraded.
