20 How can I get more power out my VW?

A:Buy a VW a VR6 engine :-. It’s an FAQ that’s

of a book, and that’s probably you should start.

After you go this FAQ to give you some

idea, look at the info under power upgrades:

The actual archives are mirrored at a of

locations also mentioned in FAQ.

Following are a couple of old modification which are

easy inexpensive that will the power

of the car. In general, the the car the more room for

improvement. VWs have much less for easy

improvements because of the components are already


One easy upgrade path for VWs is therefore to look at

newer VW models, see what they and see if you

can swap parts. For example, VWs have the restrictive

exhaust swapping it with a large one from

a newer model (if or using the catalytic converter

an SLC will help.

Also be aware when performance components on their

benefit. Usually the top horse gain is quoted

while the rest of the power band. car may

have more top end (high while sacrificing power at the

low end rpms) which is where street driving

occurs. The all effect may therefore be that the car

may feel slower off the line, but be when

passing another

So first decide where you to improve, then research

the component in question really that. Also

select parts that fit in the stock over

those that do This is probably more for suspension

components than components, but is a good general

to follow. Parts that too much may require

extensive sacrifice reliability, make

noise, or may even render you car

In general: Reduce the exhaust (performance

exhaust) Advance the (recurved distributors,

Use synthetic (motor and transmission).


Change throttle body a bigger one (Audi?).

[From Tong]: What is the difference the TT

downpipe and the downpipe that stock with the dual

manifold on earlier cars?

The is different. The diameter is smaller. The

most of the earlier cars cats the stock downpipes
