    S3 V6 conversion

    I saw a thread someone asking if anyones used a rotrex supercharger on the 1.8t but after having a nose around surely a v6 would give more power.

    anyone know of any about?

    and not the bi-turbo one.

    I've been thinking the same of late although in to an a3 quattro. Been reading up on some project cars of this nature. Bigger capacity to spool a large turbo quicker. Higher torque due to more power pulses per engine revolution, not to mention the sound.

    ..........oh, but wait for all the "just go out and buy another car" comments :-)

    500bhp + and low lag.......much fun.

    I regret getting rid of my VR6 so this would give me the best of both worlds,of course you would put it in your motor be mad not to.
    low lag is a winner

    I had a golf VR6 supercharged before my S3 and to be honest it felt sooo much stronger.
    I had it in stage 3 set up so was slightly higher on power than my Audi but felt nearer 60bhp more!
    The sound of it was sooo much better than the 1.8t but... it was an S3 or an R32 and i knew power was easy with the 20v.

    I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?

    The "fun" from a vr6 engine is the low down power. Wrong gear isnt even something that stops them pulling.
    I had mine 'charged as it was the next step. I had a large cotton green filter on mine before and the noise was just mad ! i loved it but it made me use too much fuel as i had to hear it all the time.
    The reason behind not replacing my vr6 with another was... firstly it cost me 3.8k to get the power to where it was. ( dyno'd at around 320bhp) and in a front wheel drive car it was getting to be a pig to handle. ( it ended in tears and 2 month in hospital )
    I now though... maybe would swap my S3 for my old vr6.
    Am i mad??




    Or what i have now??

    You're not mad. Some cars just make you feel good. Corrado VR6 is another good one.

    I love the Vr6. I've owned 2, one normal and one highline. Lovely cars. The sound, oooh hairs on my neck are standing up. Love the noise, really sweet sounding engine.

    Asking for a vid of the exhaust would have been a waste of time, as I knew someone will have doen it loL!

    That second vid sounds awesome!
