AWD Golf Mk3 with a Volvo turbo inline-five

Joe Bristow and his Golf Mk3 “Golvo” attended an event at Santa Pod Raceway and set a personal best. The pair reached the end of the quarter-mile in 9.075 sec at 157.37 mph. The car is powered by a turbocharged 2.3 L Volvo inline-five making around 900 horsepower on 3 bar (43.5 psi) of boost. The motor features forged pistons and rods, ported head, ID2600 injectors, Xona turbocharger, and MaxxECU. Power is sent to all four tires through a Quaife QKE45Z sequential transmission and Quaife differentials.
