    Advice for vr6 turbo

    thanks alex, I've had a read through his build thread, its quite different to what I'm considering, and it was built by a tuner, I'm planning on doing most of this myself. My motivation is that i want to go back to a turbo motor, but i can't bear to leave the vr6, after owning a st2+ s3, this...

    A curious question

    are the 3.2's in these cars charged at all? I thought that sound was the ignition cut on turbo engines causing a slight pop on gear change, also isn't that the 3.2 fsi? different engine to a3/r32
