    • MRC Tuning's Audi 2.5 TFSI swapped Volkswagen MKVII Golf R runs 9.6@143 in the 1/4 mile

      Holy crap. As reported a few days ago this MKVII Volkswagen Golf R produces 740 crank horsepower courtesy of an Audi 2.5 TFSI I5 swap and some tuning from MRC Tuning. They decided to take it to the track to see what it can do.


      Well, it runs 9's at ove 140 miles per hour:


      Yes, incredible and talk about a hell of a sleeper.

      The question is, how much does the swap cost? Whatever the price, it clearly is worth it. Not to mention all of the electronics seem to work and the DSG transmission has no issues with it.

        I think this is using the same hybrid that's in the APR rs3... Tte625

        Edit:. Nevermind... Saw the #TTE 7xx

        That answers that... definitely not a hybrid.

        A 5 cylinder 2.5 litre is doing this! This is what N54s should be doing by now. Not the ET but the trap speeds.

        I'm amazed it's a stock engine and transmission. Click here to enlarge

        Platform is barely getting warmed up and it is making the N54 look VERY outdated partially because it's absolutely true...
