4 motion mk1 Rabbit vr6 turbo would be my dream build
Bought it brand new, tuned it within the first 5k miles, then put the air ride suspension on it, then started doing performance upgrades like exhaust and intake but then needed a proper clutch to support the newly added torque. The RSR Clutch was installed and a new APR Stage 2 Tune was then flashed in to bring me where i'm at now.
