- 2016 golf R base
If I had the option of the 2.5 then I would be fine with a stage 2 FBO tune. I mean I’m happy with my Golf R FBO but I just wish I had the sound of a VR6 or 5 cylinder with a manual trans in my current Golf R. Is that so hard to ask for…Lol
Def this! its a huge investment for the DAZA. a VR6 swap is much more affordable and is still an option for me however i prefer the 5 cylinder due to the chassis code and the weight savings.
i'd urge to explore VR6 swap options before trading in the R for an RS3. especially if you like your manual R how cool would a MK7 R32 be! you could get away with a stage 3 or 4 clutch kit and VR6 blocks can be had cheap. you could probably get the whole project done between 20k-40k instead of 60k-100k
