      I am looking to find another 100-150HP out of my 3.2L V6

      What upgrades or mods have you found to provide some hidden HP out of this engine? Love my car, but the world of upgrades just evolve around the 2.0T motor...

      Any help and comments would be greatly appreciated!!

      Thanks in advance!!

      Without turbo, the most you are going to see is about 50awhp

      Yes ... but even then, I decided to sell the turbo kit before I even installed it and went back to my roots and bought another motorcycle.

      A 500+ hp car isn't very useable without risking trouble with the cops.

      Check out the MKV R32 thread - there is some great information on superchargers that work with our cars. they'll put you between 320hp to 400hp at the crank for less money and complexity than a Turbo. Another option that won't give you anywhere near the 100-150HP but will give more pull are a set of shrick cams.

      No one directly imports SC directly to the US so you have to go overseas for a special order then find a shop that does the GIAC software to tune it for the FI. You'll probably be looking at just shy of $10k with installation.
