Unfortunately, there is very little you can do to a 2.0L 8V to make it fast – apart from replace it with a 1.8T or VR6.

The main mods are the APR turbo upgrade kit I linked to further up the page, plus a Techtonics Tuning cat-back exhaust and a TyrolSport upgraded side-mount intercooler.
I dynoed the car a few times at TAG Racecraft in Oakville. The most recent dyno was 267 hp and 278 lb-ft at the wheels on pump fuel. Assuming a driveline loss of 14.5%, that would be 305 hp and 318 lb-ft.
I haven't really done anything major to the car since 2003 when it had 50,000 km on the odometer. 184,000 km on it now. It takes a beatin' too.
My car is pretty slow when you consider that the guys from SEM are rolling around in 600+ HP VR6 turbo Golfs and Corrados.
