I would call APTuning in Lebanon to get all of the info. Kits exist, however a lot of people end up doing their own manifold fabrication.

There is probably a reason you do not hear about Vr6s with turbos too often.

Either the turbos for them suck, or the Vr6 (which is already a hot motor) doesn't last very long with one.

No? I know of plenty of VRT's. There's 3 of them within 2 miles of my apartments...one of them is an R32.

The VR motor is good up to 4-500 whp on lowered compression, and most turbo kits out there are pretty damn good.

Good to know, I never see them around here in Atlanta.

Ofcourse I'm not looking too hard either.

-R32 turbo sounds badass.

R32 is the beefiest.

Thats true, they make a twin turbo kit for the R32
I've seen it. Once of the greatest launches I've ever seen was with an R32.
It was incredible.
If I ever got an r32 I would supercharge it. It would make enough power, but I would still be able to daily/sleepr it.
