    Gbot's 19R 2.5VR6T Build

    550HP / 550 ft-lbs. This is a crank number as measured on our superflow AWD dyno under SAE standard conditions. These are comparable to wheel numbers you might get if you were to run the car on the more common Dynojet - there's more to it though... Comparing dyno numbers on the internet is a...

    Gbot's 19R 2.5VR6T Build

    I'll be making a separate discussion post for the VR550T. https://www.golfmk7.com/forums/index.php?threads/hpa-vr550t-2-5l-vr6-turbo-golf-r.427563/ I don't want to derail Gerald's build thread any further.

    Gbot's 19R 2.5VR6T Build

    The hybrid turbo was the right choice for this package. There are different variables and considerations you need to make if you are building a production vehicle with longevity, packaging, and serviceability in mind. All that being said, we will be partnering with a local DAZA drag enthusiast...

    Gbot's 19R 2.5VR6T Build

    Good catch, thank you. The HPFP was a mistake. I've removed the line from our landing page. All the work with the cams and the valvetrain was to address the power delivery. The new cams are based on our TRI-flow design we developed for the 3.2 and 3.6 L...

    Gbot's 19R 2.5VR6T Build

    I'm sure there will be many comparisons between what the market has to offer whether it be a built 2.0L or DAZA 5cyl. Frankly, trying to compare cars based on peak HP tells you very little when it comes to how that power is delivered, area under the curve, drivability, and reliability. We have...

    Gbot's 19R 2.5VR6T Build

    We have a turbo kit in the works for the 3.6 VR (I have an Atlas CS (VR) myself). Marcel believes that with a moderate boost in power and torque the transmission will hold - it's rated to tow 5000lbs. That being said, if you want us to build you an Atlas 2.5T with diff and DQ500 swap, all it...
