Thought some of you might be interested. So I'll post the start of my project here.

Basically, I am turbocharging my 1993 VW Corrado VR6. Should be capable of 450whp+ easy.

So far I just have a growing pile of parts. Waiting for the remaining few before I start tear down and assembly.

Anyways, pics.

Camshaft failure?!?! All the lobes have wear like that one, some less, some more. Good thing I bought new cams.

Just waiting for a part to come, should be here next week.

That block/head looks similar to the veyrons,that's a v-16 though ofc but the layout looks very similar to what one cylinderbank looks like -2 cylinders.Bugatti is owned by vw and the veyron is designed and built by them,perhaps some design elements of your engine carried over ? Good luck with the build.:)

It's basically half of a W12, or the W12 is 2 VR6's stuck together, whichever way you want to look at it.

But yeah, the veyron is the same concept, just more cylinders.

Ah the mad Golf concept car that jeremy drove on top gear,cool.Did that engine ever make it into a production car or was it only a showpiece ?

EDIT: Nvm ,i found the Vw Phaeton 450 HP w12,never even heard of that before.

Looks good man! What are your goals for the project? Is the drivetrain going to be handle the power?

I'm only going for 300-350whp daily to keep the trans happy. Though I will see the what most it can make on dyno. :D
