kind of. They're really great cars but a bit on the expensive side.Originally Posted by FearTheWagon
Wait until they bring out the rumored mkiv R36 3.6 280 crank hp MKIV golf platform vehicle with awd. That will be a contender.
It still seems a little underpowered for what they will probably want for it compared to an sti, but I'm sure eip will bring out a turbo kit that's pushing almost 400whp with just a stg 1/2 setup. Their R32 stg 1 puts out something like 350whp, so I'm thinking it's safe to say, 400whp is going to be an easily achievable number.
Another reason R32 owners are R32 owners, is 6 cylinder love. 4-bangers are awesome, and even more so when they can put out 400whp or so, hell I even own one. But when you have even an na 6 putting out about 250whp, it's going to be so much smoother, and when you turbo them it equals big power plus smooth delivery.
That's one thing that I don't like about my jetta. When I'm driving around town with the a/c on, it always feels like it wants to stall unless you give it big gas, but once the turbo hits, it's all good.
