Call me a hypocrite, but I'd take a turbo over a supercharger any day. Don't get me wrong, I love my M90, but I'd love a nice Garrett turbo more!

Isn't the jetta/golf VR6 pretty fast? They have a an atual V6 even if it is small.

At the least they handle well (corners are lots of fun too).

We have one, and it goes like the wind....but the VR6 is a little lacking in HP..only 172, the SSEi could smoke it....even a modded VR6, and its a 2.8L 5 speed manual

I smoked the hell out of a VW Golf or GTi, don't remember which one, it'* been a while. But whatever he added to the car didn't help. (BIG fart can for one) He was slower than most other rice I've ever beaten.
