Information / Adjustments :
In September 2009, the Dyno says 415 BHP and 505 Nm (373 lbft) at 1,2 bar and 6600 rpm. Ups! Yes, I know, the syncro system doesn t support powers over 350 HP (maybe something under 400 HP, if I am lucky), but I will try to use a Haltech feature which can manage the engine power depending the gear set or the car velocity (becouse I can/want to reach 501 BHP and 601 Nm at 1,6 bar boost).

The History
My Corrado was born as a G60 in 1989. Five years ago I kidnapped it (for a good price) from someone who didn't gave him enough attention. First step was some tuning at the engine: 68mm G-pulley, RS3 tuning chip, blocked ISV valve, overbored inlet manifold, raised fuel pressure, front mounted IC, polished and ported stage IV compressor, by-pass valve rerouting, RSII G-outlet. The car was very good (+200 BHP) but not enough.
So, the second step was adapting a syncro system from a 91 Passat G60. Well, the car was very good but, again, not enough.
So, the third step was to throw out (for a good price, of course) the G60 engine and to drop in a 2,8 VR6 engine (and a VR6 syncro system) and to rebuild it so resist for something nice... 501 BHP and 601 Nm (444 lbft)!
