1990 Corrado with a Turbo 3.0 L VR6

Richie Weekes and his 1990 VW Corrado went 8.929 sec at 167.09 mph while while attending Hail Mary Derby at Maryland International Raceway. The car is powered by a turbocharged 3.0 L 12v VR6 tuned by K.P. Tuning on a Holley Dominator ECU. The motor features JE 10:1 pistons, Schimmel Performance H-beam rods, FFE Racing solid lifter head, Ferrea valvetrain, Cat Cams custom camshafts, custom intake and exhaust manifolds, and a Precision 7285 turbocharger. The motor runs on Ignite Red 114 ethanol fuel fed from a MagnaFuel MP-4303 fuel pump through Injector Dynamics 2000 cc injectors. A Liberty Dogbox transmission sends power to the front slicks. Over the summer the motor produced 840 hp to the wheels before developing some valvetrain issues.
