Adrenalin Tuning just set a new European FWD record with their Volkswagen Golf Mk1. The engine is a 1.8 L 20vT AGU inline-four with CNC ported heads and Boba-Motoring tuned ECU. The combo is good for 850 horsepower and 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of torque running off 3.2 bar (46.4 psi) of boost from a Garrett GTX4202R turbocharger and E85 fuel. The powerful engine set the record with a quarter-mile time of 8.457 sec at 266.31 km/h (165.48 mph). The power goes through a VW DSG DQ250 six-speed gearbox with a DSG controller from Adrenalin Tuning.
