06 Evo IX or 04 VW R32
Name is Jorge.
Very nice forum you guys have here. I did some searching but couldn't find the exact info I was looking for. I'm trying to figure out which would be more cost effective to reach 400whp.
I currently own a 2004 VW R32, 3.2L V6,6-Speed,AWD, rated at 240hp. I paid 19,500 for the R. And found to reach 400whp in the R it will cost me roughly $6500. This is with buying a turbo kit. So that roughly amounts to 26000 bones.
I was looking through the classified and found the I can get a decent EVO IX for around 20-24k(I would also consider a earlier model to accommodate price efficiency) Now how much money roughly would I have to put into the Evo to attain 400whp?
Both cars are amazing cars, and I've been driving VWs for a long time I need a change of pace, but I need to find out if its cost efficient to switch to a different platform or keep what I got and turbo it.
Thanks in advance for the input, it will help determine what I should do.
