On my way home tonight I ran into a MK3 Golf VR6 on the freeway, he had already passed me to get in front of me on the on ramp I decide to play with him. I pull up next to him and give the driver a nod he downshifts and gave me a smirk (he must know something i didnt), and we wait for for the two cars in front of us to exit. At 65mph I was about to honk it off but he decided to go and I promptly went WOT hitting fuel cut 3-4 times until it finally maintained 12lbs i look to my left and he still there and at this point im thinking "got damn" 80mph comes then 100 and hes still there finally by 115 i start to walk away i let off at 125. I was at this point a car or so ahead. He got off at the next exit and i ran into traffic which pretty much ruined my chances of talking to the guy. I wanna know what was done to that thing.

I had a VW friend tell me that apparently those VR6 are quite fast with bolt ons and a chip. Anyone have any experience with these?

My mods
Intake
Exhaust
No Cat
20G @ 12psi
Lower IC hardpipe

His car had from what i can tell and hear a Intake and an Exhaust. I want to assume and hope it had more done to it cause that thing was quick. Considering others cars ive beaten before.

TD06-20g on your car? I'm surprised he kept up that well... good for him, but you still took it. :)

TD06-20g are a pretty decent sized turbo, it's the TD05 that are that small ones.

maybe he had the g60 supercharged vr6 motor in it from a carrado i recently tangled with a vr6 but it was the much heavier 2003 body style he kept up with tell a 110 but he had no forced induction so maybe this one was at any rate congrats

Found out what was done to the VR6 it had full bolt ons, chip, and a 100 shot. Im kinda surprised now that it feels like it was me holding my own.

He kept up because you hit fuel cut 3 or 4 times.
That's a HUGE disadvantage. Sounds like a big turbo and no fuel/ air mods is what's limiting you.

As a rule, coming from a VW background (having owned several hotrodded VW's, including a Scirocco, a Corrado and a 1971 VW Bug pushing 365whp), VW's 4 and 6 cylinder engines always respond REALLY well to basic bolt ons and a chip. Forced induction continues the trend.

My father used to run a MKII GTI with no more than a pair of Weber side drafts, a cam and a header and exhaust. That damn thing was scary!

sounds like you need bigger injectors, but those vw's are quick, my friend has one and its a v6 twin turbo awd, very similar to a mitsubishi just smaller so people definately underestimate them, with tuning and bpu mod's they can keep up with jap cars very easily, if they upgrade the turbos your in trouble.
