May 12, 2010 update to the Volkswagen Golf project car

Hittin’ the Rollers

Our Golf made it up to Atlanta and back just fine—and did well on the dyno to boot.

On our way to the Classic Motorsports Mitty event at Road Atlanta last week, we stopped by Balanced Performance for some work on their Dynojet dynamometer.

Our baseline runs with the installed header, exhaust and intake were right around the 100-horsepower mark. Some replacement computer chips from Techtonics Tuning got those numbers up to 113 horsepower and 124 lb.-ft. of torque. That’s quite respectable for our mildly modified Golf—credit goes to the well-built Techtonics race header and full exhaust, as you can really feel this car breathe well at the upper limits of the tachometer.
