Is that the r36t? Couldn't get that link to pull up in YouTube. If not there's a built mk2 awd that ran an 8.86. Things a monster.

Boost and rpm through shifts makes for a faster car.

Shifting on the floor gives you the same effect

Basically, antilag or NLS will be needed but even with those shifts would need to be 100% prefect with an 02q/02m with synchros. Dog box conversion it would be no issue but 5k for the doxbox and then its not street friendly at all.

Some guys have strong opinions around these parts, Greasy one of them. Can't knock him for it I have some of my own opinions as well. Also met him not a bad guy.

Myself I did like the manual, fun to drive and that's why I bought the car new with it. My direction has changed from my original thought so I want to make the car as fast as possible and still drive it on the street. It may not be a true street car but I can drive it with realitive ease when done.

I did originally price building a stronger manual and then after a lotof thought and making a spread sheet for costs and weighing pros and cons of both I decided to make the switch.

I also like to go a little against the grain and build my car the best it can be reguardless of what is popular and claims others make. Any one who has seen and been in my car knows how crazy fast and smooth it is. And I can take credit for the build and built it to my own spec.

Hardly a yaris, mother had one once and sold it for a jsw, they blow. Vw is a nice build and a nice car IMO.

I think you are a closet evo freak lol.

No much for most JDM myself, more in to euro models including euro fords. Would love a cosworth escort.

Also no real issue smoking many of the rear wheel drive v8s out there. Corvette, camaro as and a gt500 mustang are all envious of my clean looking LED tails....

What's wrong with doing something different? Sure it's more difficult, but if everybody had your mentality there would be a serious lack of cool & unique builds out there.

Subíd. This build could be the best reference for high powered DSG cars, "no offense to the 3 pedals guys", but this Pt.2 will be ultimately superlative

I too was a manual to DSG convert and I have to admit, the civility when you want to just putter around is very nice. I'm incredibly intrigued to see where this will go. Best of luck on your build !
