Basically, i have always been a VW nerd. I threw good money after bad building that motor for it. At that point I had thousands into a fucking Corrado.
I blew the living shit out of 3 G-Chargers. They were not meant to spin at the speeds needed for 16-18lbs of boost. The pulley i ran was like half the size of stock. Anyway, I got the fuck out of that car after charger number 3 went. I traded it with some kid in Brooklyn (BRK son!) for a garbage can of a 97 Pissat. I almost never got another VW again after that damn Corrado.
Point is, i'm still a closet VW nerd. Im glad dennis threw that pic of his GTi up. Reminds me of where we all started out.
