    Just reading over at VR6OC - they rate the SP263 in every application, NA, super and turbocharged. apparently the NA cars saw 20+bhp and an impressive torque gain after a group buy they did.

    My VR went for a head rebuild, chains & refresh at Stealth - during which i had SP263's dropped in, BMC air filter & a Vince re-map amongst other things

    I ended up with just shy of 210 horses with almost the same torque IIRC. I have since had a 2.5" Longlife SS with hi-flow CAT fitted & would guess a new map would be approaching the 215 - 220 mark

    I think the best part about all the work was the map Vince put on it, the power delivery is far & away better than the factory map.

    i will dig out my power curve output & try to post it as an example
    Bramber metallic VR6 bring on the grins as the VR sings!!!!
    Stealth head rebuild, 263's, BMC CDA, Roose M/Sport hoses, VT engine mount, KW V1s
    KUR2Y loom, daves16v short shifter, 2.5" Longlife SS exhaust with sport cat, lots of shiny bolts & 210bhp
    Alpine White 1.8 16v, Kamei skirts, Powerflow SS exhaust, back on my drive April 2014

Golf feels more like 270-80 BHP Im starting wonder If the first owner of the Golf had her tuned , purchased from BMW Sytner so have never chatted with the previous owner.

    Yeah mine was in dire need of a head refurb according to Vince, it was more or less a barn/driveway find, so was in a poor state. Vince said one of the best he'd seen so going by that forced induction for bigger figures

    Do you have a stock airbox ? That is very impressive figures and a lot of power for a light car compared to todays heavy lumps.

    Cheers dox ��

    You will struggle to get more than 230bhp out of a nasp vr that's for sure

    Never wanted a six branch tbh there not all that!! Plus vw did a good job on the standard mani

    I'm running 310bhp now with a charger, if you want good usable power then a charger is where its at!

    Iv out run m5 twin turbos on the country roads and had good blasts with loads of stuff
    Kept up with a mates rs4 v8 manual just fine and his rs3

    What is the torque steer like chap with 310 ? I would be happy if I get a 220/230 BHP read out that's plenty for me as I like to rev out a car as much as I can hence Im a big VR fan also flat sixes, had a S550 GT Mustang that I had to sell but that back end was like butter, got her her up 480 BHP with a Borla sport and tune but was lethal on UK greasy roads, car was launching out from the back pulling half donuts without my permission, cant say it didn't put a smile on my face though although he was in someways not as usable as a VR.
