Anyone raced a tuned v8 n/a c63 ?

Stock (assuming) C63 w205 - pulled on it pretty good.

Tuned C63 w204 - was close for a bit but he started walking above 110 mph, as mentioned above.

If you’re over 400whp it should be fun.

For a 4banger it's impressive. I love mine. Almost 40mpg highway. My c63 is bad in terms of mpg.
Agreed, VW definitely makes one of the best 4 cylinders. I’m also around 35 mpg highway.

Sometimes I forget the class of car this is. It’s supposed to be an all around useful and quick car, but I get caught up with the racer boy stuff and lose the intention.

You Rockin' an R? If not as this is posted M7 vs.... then traction certainly may be an issue....yet on the free way rolling should be able to keep up at a certain point ☝️

Yep, I know the feeling...I mean with some new shoes, tint and APR Stage 1 High Torque tune at just 3100 lbs with a Performance Sports LSD & Big Brakes likened to the R how can you not get caught up ?

Very nice 👍

I was stage 2 for 3 months before upgrading the turbo. The hype is real for those looking for it!
Thank You. Yes hype is certainly real and the guys at Volks know where the happy is for in town RPM fun, 1-3000.

GTI right ? Are you spinning tires? What size and brand turbo ?

Are you still stage 2 with a bigger turbo and downpipe still ? Or did you go stage 3 and bigger turbo. I am not a fan of down pipes. I would be interested in a bigger turbo and bypass the down 👇 pipe sitch.

If you’re starting from stock, probably around 5k. I don’t want to think about how much I’ve spent so far 😂

It’s been like a week. Is this shit happening or not?

I don’t think so. It may have been my fault since I went to ask a forum instead of just trying it. 😂
