will be using the original block but the internals will be changed, forged pistons and different crank and head bolts etc, like I said the list goes on and on. I looked at putting an RS4 engine and running gear on the R32, but I wasnít confident with the feed back I was getting.

I have been given figures of over 600BHP, but letís wait and see >:D

Sounds incredible, will this thing be road legal?

Did you buy a new R32 since your one was stolen Simon?

Oh and good luck with the project, it sounds great!

Rex mentioned once that the heads on the R32 are that good when used for FORCED Induction!

Well it will be a HPA twin turbo kit with twin intercoolers also with upgraded cams, upgrades to the clutch is a must, also having launch control. The bonnet, doors, tailgate and wings will be carbon fibre. The interior will be just two seats (lightweight race) with roll cage. I am having the shell seem welded.

The brakes will be full AP race all round and suspension will be full race coil overs.

The list goes on and on, but it is my aim to make this the fastest golf ever >:D, the project should be finished by July 06. ;)


whats it gonna be used for ? Just street use ?

Itís my R32 that was stolen that I am using for this project, I got the car back in a million pieces!

I was worried about the heads on the R32, but I have spoken to several companies that either turbo charge or super charge this engine, they have never had one fail so far.

This car will be road legal but I will only use it for track days and Sunday fun (also hoping to blow a few Skylines off at the ľ mile). I am using the guy who did my AmD 300 bhp conversion, so he knows his way around the R32, Gary Capper is an ex WRC mechanic.

I just love the look of the R32, yes i know it seems silly doing all this work (according to my wife!) but i want something different, hopefully i will also need to carry spare undies every time i go out in it!  ;D

Hi I'm a new member here and I have a 2001 s3 with an mtm chip and it works fine on 97.5 and 98 octane. I would definitely recommend one although I bought my car already chipped and didn't have to shell out for the chip which I understand can be quite pricey. At any rate the car has a huge amount of torque and drives really well although it drops off a bit top end and there isn't any point in revving it past 6000 rpm.

Contacted Giltraps recently re getting a stainless steel mtm exhaust and they are hopeless. They said they would call me back and that was over two weeks ago.
