      So I came across this a while back but lately I've been thirsting for more power so I've looked into it some more...I've gotta say...it's very appealing despite its rather hefty price tag. Apparently eurospec has a few options on n/a vr6 conversions. The one that caught my eye was the 3.2/3.6 conversion that they claim yielded 290whp/335wtq??!! Yeeeah...how come no one else has come close to that on an all-motor vr?? Anyways, I was wondering if anyone here has had experience with this product or at least knows someone who has. I tried doing a search but didn't find anything.

      Eurotuner did an article on it a while back http://www.eurotuner.com/techarticle...e/viewall.html

      Whats strange to me is that I haven't heard a single person talk about it, I know it's pretty expensive but I bet a lot of guys on here have spent around the same beefing up their all motor vr's...all for 200whp.

      Big claims, never independently verified.

      This is true. I would be very surprised if one of these kits puts out this much power. If anyone had purchased one you'd think they would be a member on here what's also strange is that no one apparently has tried to duplicate this on their own...with all the successful, crazy swaps out there...

      Maybe they bolted on some skateboard wheels to get the torque numbers

      http://forums.subdriven.com/showthre...-3.2L-24V-Head There's the 3rd party proof. We have been playing around with this idea for our 1993 Corrado as well. Interesting alternative to a F/I build.

      ^That's also stock airbox, intake mani, not fully tuned, etc. I believe it is easily capable of 300whp, possibly 330-340whp with a good SRI or ITB setup on full standalone or equivalent

      That's cool...I'm sure he would get the claimed 290whp at least if he upgraded the air box, timing etc...not sure about the 330wtq though...still seems a little high. Either way though that would be great to have that much n/a power on my mk2 much cooler than a supercharger on my 12v IMO

      I think the torque is achievable if the compression is 10.5-11:1 and an aggressive 93 octane tune. A tuned airbox would help as well
