Holy E36 M3.

Good God!

I didn't believe it until I watched the video.

That's an F1 engine- in a Golf!

They must be Voodoo witch doctors that went to a German Engineering School that have access to ancient Chinese secrets. Oh, and PCBs were probably Involved.

Looked like it didn't start pulling good until 5500 rpms. Can anyone say light switch.

That's not the fastest Golf i've seen, but it's certainly the most sleeperish.

An A1 GTI doesn't feel all that confidence-inspiring at stock HP levels, I can't imagine having 11x the power.

I can't figure out how they kept the engine together.

If they engineered this in their garage, and aren't already engineers I'd say they need a career change.

I wonder what they use for a gearbox? That has always been a problem as far as I know with high hp dubs. Scary scary car. Awesome.

I always thought that there was nothing wrong with my A2 that an additional 300hp couldn't fix.

That would have brought it up to, oh, 400hp.

I've rode along while tuning a genuinely 1000hp car on the street. It's easy to get jaded to the ruuuuUUUUSH but it's also hard to not giggle like a schoolgirl every time it happens.

A couple hundred HP more, with about 1500lb less....

How much of the indicated speed was wheelspin?

Swank Force One MegaDork

Looks like it was only spinning 2nd gear. So... when it maxed out the speedo, that was all speed.
