Looks awesome. Another VW guy here as well! I still have my MKIV GTI VR6 with a fully built 3.0 L. I actually have a Schimmel Intake sitting in my closet brand new since 2008. I was going to turbo my VR6, but ended up saving and buying my 996 Turbo instead. Sorry if I missed it but are you turboing the corrado, or NA? What do you think of the intake? I was thinking about doing a small project and just installing it in my N/A motor. Schimmel says it will make some power. Great garage!

Nice!!! To put the Schimmel SRI on a Mk4 it takes a bit more work due to the throttle body being really close to the fan/battery from what I remember building a supercharger setup for a friend on his. Going N/A on the Corrado for now, I found the SRI and cams are the real way to make big N/A power if you have standalone to really dial it in. Just putting the SRI on a 12v with a chip picks up ~20hp! Originally built the motor for 700hp, but with having the 996/997 to solve the speed bugs a nice N/A light car was the direction that it is headed for now.

A TT downpipe with the SRI are the way to go, what cams are you running on the 3.0?

Currently running 268 Schrick cams. Yeah I remember there being some interference with the fan shroud. Interested to hear if you have any more advise!

268's are the way to go, that is what I am currently running in this motor with an S2 MetalWerks header.

I'll see if I can dig up some pictures of the setup on my buddies Mk4 for you

Fantastic! Much appreciated! Yeah I really enjoy the car. Its not at all fast, but for what it is and the tech it had at the time its really fun. The cams bring on power at 3k and pull all the way up. Quite fun in something that sounds that incredible. Im running a Peloquin LSD and RE71Rs so there is 0 possible chance of wheel spin haha

The raw sound of a VR6 is quite an experience, sort of why staying n/a with it. The manifold and 6" velocity stack put it up there with ITB VR6's, just listen to them sing! Running a old close ratio VWMS gear set that tops out at 140 with a Peloquin, back when it was supercharged the short ratio transmission always made up for being 100hp down vs all the VRT's. The car will just have door cards and a carpet in it to lighten it up as much as possible while staying with the steel body panels. Ideal target weight should be around 2400-2500lbs with 200-230whp depending on how wild I tune the standalone up for.
