    Peak boost of ~22PSI on the TSI. Simply can't do a launch video holding a phone as its a bit violent .... ~6.5s 0-100 in an Amarok is a wild ride

    Current: 2018 MY19 Golf R manual Lapiz Blue + DAP (mods are underway ) 2018 MY18 Golf 110TSI Trendline manual White (with mods now 150TSI) 2014 Amarok TSI Red (tuned over 200kw + lots of extras) 2013 Up! manual Red 2017 Mustang GT manual Race Red with mods now making 370kw
    10 Previous VWs and some others ...

    Its actually been tuned since 2015 (well before the V6s came out) Launching a manual tuned petrol Amarok is much more violent than any of the V6s ..... That auto box in the V6 takes most of the violence out of it .... I know, have done both

    Nice!! I like the sound of the exhaust too. Gotta love the old 'Puffing Billy' train whistle as my kids call it haha!

    I'll second the tuned TSI launch, reminds me of my old 13B RX3 bridgeport but alot less wheelspin

    Hey mate, wondering if you've done any research into HD clutch kits. Mines been tuned for about 20,000km now and the clutch is slowly letting go. Mechanic says go standard Sach's or Exedy kit but i'm looking into HD kits like Xtreme Outback dual mass to help hold the extra power. Thoughts?!

    Maybe also talk to NPC. They make some nice clutches. I had one in my 800Nm TD42 Patrol.
