OK, I've done some reading - the search function is a bit tough to deal with. I recently bought a 2001 GLX V6 5-speed, LOVE the car. I'm looking to make it a bit more fun - but searches for v6 mods or anything similar don't return much info. I know the bolt patterns for rims and tire sizes - so don't need that info - but anything else or suggestions of what has worked well for you would be good.

As a suggestion - perhaps a second forum for V6ers wouldn't be bad - seeing that the common forum is dominated with 1.8t info - most of which doesn't pertain to the V6 - except for some of those AWESOME looking body kits that I've seen - RIGHT ON!!!!!! :bow:

Thanks everyone in advance - looking forward to many fun years as a VW owner! :lol:

get the pulley in the group buy, it ends April 5th, so hurry. Other than that, talk to Nenad. There isn't much, but his is putting out around 240hp without the supercharger he just purchased. I'm trying to get there, but it's a long battle. Check on a GIAC chip. Seems like the only one that will really add hp.
