With Turbo and Super charging you can create massive horsepower with vw motors.

I bought a $7 bleed off type manual boost controller off of ebay. I didn't get much time with it before I pulled the engine, but it seemed to work just fine. Also, I have no way to tell for sure, but it seemed like it also boosted quicker when I had it opened up a little. Not sure if that means I have a problem with the wastegste or not, but it sure seemed to improve it.

I've got one, just waiting to put it on. Once the car is engineered, then it, new injectors, WB and the like will all go on. Just want to get things squared away first before I blow it... I mean, wind it up. :D

Well, I'm enjoying your US hospitality atm. Staying in Reseda in LA for a few days. The Mexican food here is off the chain. Driving on the wrong side of the road is not too bad and we're getting used to avoiding the freeways. Went to the Peterson and saw a gaggle of cool cars today including vintage porsches. Anyone local who wants to give me a scare in their turbo acvw, PM me. I'm here till Friday morning.

Sadly, Utah isn't part of the plan. Wish it was.
