I am dying to see some pics of this Rado Hustler. Sounds like it was a beast. You must have had one of the version 1 ATP manifolds as the version 2 ones are bulletproof. I have never even heard of a single failure. The worse part of those manifolds is the terrible wastegate placement. You have to buy a rotation flange to correct it.

What software/standalone were you running?

Just happened across this thread and read through the first page. Seems like a little misinformation in here.

I own a 98 GTI VR6 That made over 350 whp. The software you are talking about is C2 Motorsports. They have software for 30#, 42#, and are coming out with 63# software. I hear about a lot of people that have problems with their dubs but I have never had a problem in any of the five that I have owned.

I just took my turbo stuff off this past weekend so I could get some money to buy a miata when I find the right one. I'm pretty pumped to build up a car that I have no knowledge of but I am soaking everything up pretty damn quick. The C2 software is amazing and I wish miatas had something similar to it. Basically plug in the chip with their 4" maf housing, 42# injectors, and 8.5:1 headspacer, crank the boost to 16 psi (or more on a stock block) and crank out 350-400 whp. Simple and sweet but fwd.

Were you running intercooled on your vr6?

On C2's site I only see the software for #30 and #36 injectors, do you have to just ask them for the other kind?

I like the whole turbo idea, but it looks like a major headache to install a turbo setup on the cramped VR6, a supercharger seems much more manageable, but then it would be interesting routing the pipes for the intercooler.

I have to scour my 700gb hdd at home. It wasn't super oustanding, just really pretty with a solid motor, which sometimes ran. It wasn't a show car or anything, just everything a fun daily/highway car should be. I replaced it with a TT essentially, but I've told you guys about that experience.

I had a Haltech e6k. I hear the kinetic kit is much better.

a vortec blower is super easy, can install in like 4 hours, and will make enough power to pull base model c5's.

I can't remember a lot of this **** because it was almost a decade ago.

we have mspnp for plug/play action. I don't know how the hell C2 did their chips, but I had a ton of different ones (then Haltech) that sucked ***, and my friends ran the chip and the car was great with good AFR's.

Yea C2 has really come a long way with their chips. No CEL and you can take out the rear 02 and SAI.

For obd1 vr6 I think your options are the 30# and 36# with the 42# coming soon.
For obd2 vr6 you can get 30#, 42#, and soon the 63#!!

I had a front mount on mine. I'm sure the supercharger is easy to install but a turbo is by no means difficult at all. There is a TON of room behind the engine for that turbo.

ive been looking at a few vw's to buy for my GF as a daily driver so im reviving this thread:

1990 corrado (auto mileage unknown)
http://modesto.craigslist.org/cto/883522013.html

1994 jetta III (5spd 160k checked it out and its clean)
http://modesto.craigslist.org/cto/852193863.html

I love the style of the corrado and the price and 5spd of the jetta III, plus that one is like 2 blocks from my house so no driving to get it ... im lazy like that. I could be convinced to go check out the corrado though. Oh and these cars will not be modified at all, stock, cute and reliable is all i want (or could be made reliable with a good going over). As of now im leaning towards the Jetta.

G-60 Autos aren't any fun; 150+ hp in a car that weighs 2600+, and then add an auto?

It's up to your GF, but if it were me, I would stay away from the Corrado. All the trim pieces are so ******* expensive...


Add to that, the reliability of the G60 with age...

That and you can find 2.slow Jettas All day long for ~2k or so.

I wouldn't recommend a rado to a non-car guy...ever.

Depends. If by 'electronic fuckdown', you mean CELs, you couldn't be further from the truth.

I've driven, owned, and modified VWs for nearly 20 years, and been a VW dealership parts-slinger for nearly 5 of those 20. Every VW have I had trouble with was due to poor maintenance earlier in its' life. While I can't say that this is -always- the case, I believe I can maintain that it is the case more often than not. VWs definitely have their short-comings, FWD is one of them. And honestly, I am getting tired of some of those short-comings; but regardless, as a brand, they are at least a 7 out of 10.

I don't think you know the meaning of the word, 'seriously'.

Please stfu with the VW nutswinging, and don't come in here and tell us that VW's are ultra reliable, or even marginally acceptable. I'm talking about real problems like bullshit coil packs, window regulators, ECM replacement (car randomly shutting down), water pumps, ABS sensors, turbo death, starter solenoids, headlight ballasts...and all that is just from my TT225. Do you care to discuss self-machining differentials or the multitude of class-action lawsuit losses from reliability garbage they've refused to acknowledge?

VW has two major shortcomings that keep me from buying again: reliability in general on all systems in the car, and VWoA black-listing people with $42k cars because they don't feel like fixing the problem and would rather let dealers suck money out of them than just fix the problem the first time...until the car has seen so much service that they boot the customer.

After 9-vw's came through the family, I will never buy another european car again, in my life. After the Audi gang-*******, I will do anything I can to deter anyone from giving a cent to that fucked up, piece of **** corporation.

I wouldn't buy a VW, but a Porsche I'd do. Mechanically they're great, and all the cars I've been around from the 80's can have electric issues, but they're not BAD. Not like an old Alfa or FIAT. And that says a fair amount since I'm local to and visit a Porsche specialist.
