Volkswagen Corrado first hit the roads in 2004 and in 2005 it got the first turbo as a stand-alone. The sports car manufactured by Volkswagen, the German automaker. In 1990, Corrado went on sale in the US. A new turbo with improved open wastegate and well designed downpipe was introduced in 2006. It got a new engine with ceramic coated dooms and longer con rods late 2006. With a Front-Wheel Drive, you get a fuel economy of 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on city.
The VW Corrado Modified is truly a great example of what a modified car should be. Don't let the plain blue color of the car fool you, as under the hood lies a powerhouse. However, first talking about the exteriors, we have a broad five ended alloys. The head lamps are classic rectangular shaped with the fog lamps being of the equal size and shape. The hood is painted black with the rest of the car painted turquoise blue. The rear of the car sports a spoiler. The car runs on eight transmissions with a VR6 gear set. In fact, the third gear can take you up to 180 km/hr. It has a GT3082-15 turbo with custom compressor housings and turbine

- Ok, here's a somewhat chronological history of the major stuff.
- build start: dec 2003, first on the road Sept 2004. In 2005 it gets a stand-alone and it blows the first turbo (GT2540) after running 30psi of boost on pump gas. Jan 2006 it gets a new turbo (GT3082-15 with customturbine and compressor housings) with better designed downpipe and open wastegate. A few months later it spins a con rod bearing damaging the crank journal on cyl #3. It's off the road till late 2006 when it gets a new engine...longer con rods(159mm) and lower CR (8:1) ceramic coated dooms, and silicone coated skirts. block borred 0.040" over. Burned a hole in the head between cyl 3 and 4 experimenting with 25 psi on pump gas (oviously too much with the bigger turbo).
- 26000Km since first on the road, 10k on the new engine. 8 transmissions (that's more than 1 tranny/oil change ), ~6 sets of driveshafts, 3 sets of engine mounts 3 sets of control arm busshings. Currently running on full VR6setup: subframe, crossmember, engine mounts (KCD), transmission (VR6 gear-set in a 4cyl tranny case). This seems to be a reliable setup.
- It takes 22psi to break loose 3'rd in dry with 2 people in the car. I'm running 20psi for every day driving. Gears are relative though sice there are so many different ratios. In this car 3'rd takes you to 180Km/h.
