ok, so im new to all this...but help me out,
i just bought a Jetta 1.8 Turbo, well my parents did, and i want to obviously make it faster. i lost to a WRX the other day..it was depressing. so i basically have unlimited $$$. im still 17 and livin with the parents. im a senior in high school. and i wanna know if a stage 4 turbo upgrade would be worth my $$ or if i should just go all out and pretty much replace the whole engine with a stage 6?? help..and let me know what ya'll think i should do..im totally open

If you decide to keep your engine, there are a few things to make it faster for not very much money.

Full Exhaust - Headers and a full catback system. This will improve engine breathing.
New Intake - This will help your engine breath better.

If you want to spend more money, you could buy a new turbo etc.

ok...is it possible to do a blowoff valve..i have had so many diff answers. also quad exhaust yes or no? would it add hp? also with the quad exhaus would i need a new downpipe?

Of course you lost to a WRX! Those are pulling 227 hp and you may have either 180 or 200, I dont remember what Audi 1.8Ts pull... Either way you were fairly beaten. Just do some more work!

About the exhaust: the quicker the exhaust can get out of your car, the better, and the quicker you can get are into your car (intake) the better. Both add HP. :thumbs:

Well if you have the unlimited funds...then go all out...build your motor ie make it stronger for more boost, then go big turbo and all the goodies that go w/it

Have fun

Buy a Ferrari modena 360... You can find one at your local dollar general store

posted by  B.O.W.

They dont make 360s anymore, and the waiting list is for the next several to years just to get the 360s that are being made. It is now the 430 that is being made. :thumbs:

Its just that I probably know her in the real world...
