    The charger only provides a mild boost, the flap in the manifold is tiny, so doubt the low boost will do much to restrict it...almost not sure wether to just sell the schrick and stick and shorter intake on it.

    Biggest issue I have at the moment is the loom, I have a mate who does resto who will be taking a look tonight

    Stealth put TT fronts on for me, made a load of difference although you'll have a lot more bhp

    Going with TT fronts as well with drilled/grooved discs, not going to bother with Brembos as I want to keep a similar brake pedal feel. Rears will be upgraded to TT as well with vented and drilled/grooved discs

    Hit a bit of a crossroads with the project....need to sort some rust before I progress.....which is fine....however this has got me thinking which direction I want to take the car, the effort i want to put in and how usable I want the car longer term. As such I am thinking about 2 very different directions after sorting the bodywork:

    1. Rebuild as is VR6 > Schrick > Charger etc etc - Concerns are wiring engine loom is crispy and have replaced several sections/plugs allready + general maintainence of a modded car
    2. Buy a modern car with a tfsi/tsi lump and trasnplant everything over e.g engine, box, loom, dash the lot

    with Option 2 being funded by all the bits I have gathered for option 1 e.g. charger, schrick, never run VR6 lump, vr6 box with peloquin diff, schrick cams, VT engine mounts

    Needless to say I am stuck a I do love the VR lump, but just thinking about the future, the effort I put on now and how much effort I may or may not be able to put in, in the future...any comments, guidance or thoughts welcome'd

    Hmm both options are a lot of work, intially I thought as your VR6 loom has seen better days perhaps going down the tfsi route is problem solved. However either way you're going to be doing a lot of wiring work.

    TFSI will see more power for better value and probably will be more reliable. It's also pretty rare in the Corrado but very common out on the road. Only other downside is that the engine sounds like any other 2.0 4pot turbo. I see from your sig you do have another VR6 though so maybe this will be different enough and would a VR6 Supercharged+ dilute your standard storm VR6 too much?
