Hi all,

 

bit of a random topic but what are the best modifications to do to a mk5 R32, it has around 120K on the clock and i want to turn it into a bit of a weapon if i'm honest as its a second car.

All depends on your definition of a weapon!!ie speed then either super charge it or turbo it wish Rishworth performance or stealth racing are your choice
Stance wise is Coil overs or lowering springs.
Exhaust..lucifier a member on here who sells them or scorpion or milltek exhausts

5k to turbo or supercharge it. And it will still get done by a chipped 420d Save ur money and enjoy the sound. They aren’t fast by any account now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Start with suspension. Then brakes. Tyres are important. When you can corner and stop, decide how much faster you want to go.

Definitely not the fastest just sold mine and bought a bmw 330d miles better inside, a lot quicker but I don’t half miss the sound of the r32

There's still improvements that can be done that doesn't cost the earth (£5K).
Lol.
Get some work done on the Head.
Port n Polish, Get some Cams thrown in at same time. (2nd hand set if your lucky).
Or keep your original cams.
A decent map, The car will feel Soooooooooooooooooooooo different.

I done it on my Mk4 with standard cams.
Another 32 Mk4 owner had done the same as me with Cams.
We both made a difference.
I made 282, and matey made 291.

I would not dispute for the moment the benefit of head work, cam upgrade and some consequent adjustments to fuelling and ignition  ai a rolling road session. However, done well, the above work in not cheap. Looks as if you have suspension and brakes ticked off so more performance is a logical move.

Cheaper than £5K mate.
Upgraded Cams is not a must, with standard it still makes a difference.
