A buddy of mine had a C2 SC on his car which worked like a prostitute at church on sunday. He changed to a turbo with the C2 software and it was really nice at 8lbs. I hear 15 is nuts!!!!!!! I got to think that WI should almost be a requirement for VR6 F/I setups. VR's run hot enough as it is.....

Vr coolant temp is usally in check. Its the oil temps that can really climb on NA or turbocharged cars. The supercharged cars don't have the same problem since the charger acts as a giant heat sink. The little Setrab cooler that will be behind my grill should keep my oil temps fairly low.

A good buddy of mine runs a C2 SC kit with a Flipside intake manny and fmic along with a Devils Own basic kit. I installed an 11 psi pulley a few months back. The car hauls serious ***. He pulled a chipped BMW 335I a couple weeks ago on the freeway.

They are. The power delivery is so nice to drivetrain parts as well. Run a turbo vr vs an SC vr though and the turbo just walks so ******* hard.

yeah, but the vortech vr6's are probably the most fun a fwd car can get. It really feels like you're driving a big block.

yeah. Get ready for a used part hunt if anything aside from the drivetrain breaks. Interior, body, and electrical (mk2/mk3) parts are impossible to find.

Most stuff is still very available off of the vwvortex. My little bro just picked up a 91 Gti with a Rado Vr6 drivetran. It should be a beast once we boost it.

You are too nice Tim. It was a joke. A buddy was doing exhaust on his WRX and I just couldn't resist.

Pretty damn nice recirc.
Are you using all stainless? That one pipe going down towards the IC looks like a different material though i could be mistaken.

Are you leaning towards pollishing the pieces or coating them with something?

I still want to know what canister.

Is the Recirc. BOV installed the wrong way? Or do you guys to that so it holds more pressure?
