VR6 forged internals?

Post by anedarado » Dec Thu 31, 2009 2:49 am

Hey I'm new to the site. So I've been looking for a rado for at least 6 months, all over the states now. just never finding one that comes together for me. leme know if anybody knows of one. what i really wana know is if anybody has pulled apart a vr6, some guy tryin to sell me a rado with a swapped jetta vr said they all have forged internals. im a skeptic so if anybody knows if there were any years or whatev that did leme know. im really curious. If they all are that would really make my day but i am extremely doubtful. Thanx.

i dont believe that they are forged, they will however withstand quite a beating. with proper management and a head-spacer, obd1 motors go up to about 350hp, the odb2 can be pushed over 400 without internal mods. however its recommended to upgrade with all forced induction.

as for finding a corrado, spokane craigslist usually has one, check all of washington state, there was a really nice VR6 rado on MT craigslist not too long ago, it was is great shape!

Naw, everything is cast as far as I know. Still, good for 500whp.

If you want a Corrado, look here.

I recommend a 93+, so you get the new style interior.

Do you live there right now? I'm in Corvallis. You might have seen my Corrado.
