  • 2018 Volkswagen Golf R with Tomioka Racing IHX475 2.0 turbo runs 11.7@116.88 1/4 mile

    A respectable result here for a MKVII Volkswagen Golf R on 94 octane pump fuel with bolt ons plus a Tomioka Racing IHX475 turbo upgrade. Of course there will be those who point out there are quicker and faster Golf R's but running 11's on pump fuel is solid.


    The 1.718 60 foot on street tires isn't bad either:


    The HPA TCU tune and the United Motorsport Haldex tune definitely help put the power down.

      With 427 whp this is way beyond slow.

      My stage 2 2015 Golf R (5-door, pano roof, full interior, no spare wheel) ran 11.75 multiple times, draggy confirmed.
      93 octane (famous Ukrainian fuel).

      The numbers just don't work out. Stage 3 cars run 11.3 easily with full interior and no meth.

      Given that in a neighbour post etuners run 10.8 with similar setup + meth, this result seems even more surprising.

      ^^^Agreed. This is pretty darn slow for an upgraded turbo and the 7-speed DCT.

      In the context of the E-Tuners result it looks slow but it's ok. Nothing to brag about but it's what Tomioka posted for their turbo.
