Timing chains seals and guides at a VW specialist down South 2 months before purchase. New battery, upgraded headlight loom, new passat sunroof, spoiler fully operational. Lupo wipers.

    So been a hell of lot research but happy to report the car drives wonderful and tight,bit of a beast to with the Shrick. Many thanks to Vince at Stealth Racing the Corrado King Pin and his mechanics, VW Heritage and Corrado Forum and members.

    Look forward to catching up with some of you guys at the car shows.

    Thanks GER040.

    Have to be honest I have never driven a VR6 without one as it's my first ever VR6, my older VW's have been from the Golf MK2,4,7 GTI range. I would say plenty of low down torque and pick up , there is actually a trader in Birmingham that has several of these as he use to import cars from Germany but he wont let them go for no money or kind words .

    Thanks fla it does drive like a new car really enjoying it.

    It has had a remap but this was done when the Shrick was fitted in 2003 so not to clued up on the specification/data sheet. However I did track down the owner of the car when it got re mapped from a old receipt and I asked him what are the figures and he said 210 - 220BHP but I cannot clarify this without putting it on a rolling road . I think you have to remap your ECU with a Shrick because it may lead to pinking if left as stock.

    I didnt even know what a Shrick was it just so happens the car I purchased had it fitted so a bit of a bonus really .

    For those considering changing their temp/oil sensors/senders the picture below might sway you into decision, parts removed from my car. The far right is the only one that has been changed since leaving the factory.
