How much power will this header support?

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

Hey all, I’m looking at a A1 / DRD Turbo header in 1-1/2 tubing. How much lower will that size of tubing support?

Depends on a lot of factors.. How much power do you want?

I wanted the same header, but 1,5" is not enough for my power goal. So sticking with my 1 5/8" for now. Will probably make a 1 3/4" cusom one some time.

Probably north of 400 horsepower with enough boost. 1.5" is a good street turbo header size for a 2 to 2.3 liter.

How much are you hoping to make? Tiger will make 1.625 if you ask, at least thats what I've heard.

Mid 300’s in hp and tq.
It’s a TREMENDOUS deal I found on one, but would only get it if it works form my efi’d 2110 I’m building.
