On the front and back of this Volkswagen Golf Mk3 is a badge that says VR12. That’s because this hatch has one VR6 in the front and one VR6 in the back. Each engine features a SP Stage 3 block, SCCH ported 12V heads, larger valves, titanium retainers, solid lifters, TT 288 solid cams, and Garrett Gen2 GTX3584RS turbocharger. The combination is capable of 1,000 horsepower per engine. Dual drive-by-wire switches allow either both engines or a single engine to be controlled with the accelerator pedal. The drivetrain consists of a Clutch Masters 850 series twin disc clutch, 02M FSR transmission with upgraded gears, Peloquin differential, and Driveshaft shop Stage 5 axles going to 17-inch Hoosier slicks. The car went low-9’s several times in 2017 (9.142 sec at 163.81 mph, 9.136 sec at 162.22 mph) however the owner is hoping some recent changes will get it into the 8’s in 2018.
