      The car puts down a little over 400 hp and 400ftlbs @ 19lbs of boost I don’t run 19 lbs. because the clutch can’t handle it and the bottom end really needs to be built to run that consistently. I’m currently running 13-15 lbs. of boost which should put me somewhere between 340-360hp I don’t race the car I just enjoy the thrill of going fast and that’s fast enough for me. The body and paint is in reasonable shape for its age and asking price but could use some work. The car does not have an lsd or upgraded clutch; I have kept it that way to preserve the integrity of the transmission. I am currently running 13-15lbs of boost and notice slight clutch slippage at full throttle in third gear, first and second just spin the tires/tire. The car has new front ball joints as of last summer and tie rods were replaced a year before that. Brakes works fine but could use some attention in the rear (common for these cars) new ebrake cables were installed this spring and rear shocks last fall. Rear swing arm bushings are needed I just haven’t had the time to replace them. The rain tray was removed to help vent excess heat generated by the turbo, also making simple maintenance much easier. The ecu was moved to the interior of the car with the wires run through the front frame rails. Car does not leak any coolant although I would recommend replacing the upper rad hose to eliminate the ugly splice for the overflow. There is a problem with the heater core and because of that the core is bypassed. I haven’t done much looking into this problem because I only drive the car during the summer months. (In my spare time I have been looking into replacing the heater core) Rocker panels need some help but I have never owned a mk3 vr6 that didn’t and this is my third mk3 vr6 (the plastic side skirts harbored sand and salt wreaking havoc on the rockers). This is my third car and does not get driven much more than a few thousand miles a year so simple wear items last much longer than that of a daily driven car. The value of the mods alone warrant the asking price without taking into consideration the value of the vehicle its self-Thank you all for your interest

      I’m located in Barrington NH and like it says in the post it’s in pretty good shape for a 16 year old car but the rockers are rusted along with a few other spots here and there and there is a couple spots on the floor boards that need help, the cylinder head and the turbo kit are worth more than the asking price of the car along with all of the other mods so people need to understand that the car its self does need some work all of that aside I have put hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars into this project and I do know what it is all worth if you are seriously interested in this kind of a project you will be able to appreciate the car for what it is people need to start taking advantage of this powerful resource we call Facebook and spread the word we can make a difference but we all need to do our part, share this link we can all make a change

      I just paid the same price for a fully built vrt corrado that's 22 years old body is not that great but I basically paid for the engine it's a monster I would love to swap it into a mk2 or 3 gti.
