      Probably for a reason.. To quote Chris Rock.. "You can drive a car with your feet if you want to... It doesnt mean that you should!"

      how about as far as hp and tq figures? how does a carb'd cam'd 16v stack up against a 12v vr6? the VR starts out at about 175hp right? what have you guys seen a Carb'd 16v put down? I found one video where he was at 150hp? ...seems kind of low but what do i know

      I know it's damn near sac religious, but I like the MKI with the busa motor. I've scene built busa/zx14 motors put out mid-high 300's easily and they're def light.

      I have seen 16v carbed and with some other goodies touch the 200 hp mark.

      However the 1.8t is a more modern engine which can produce more power with less money invested.
      The more sensible swap is a 1.8t however I really want a 16v in my mk1.

      A vr is nice but doesn't belong in a mk1 in my opinion.
