motormavens Cocktail hour at #Tower23Hotel in #SanDiego, starring the 2015 #VWGolfR. As we stuff jumbo prawns into our mouths while staring at the car, we can't help but wonder... what should we upgrade first? New wheels? Coilovers? New brake lines and more aggressive pads? Even BIGGER calipers and rotors? Sway bars? Exhaust? Air freshener? What would YOUR first mod be? #MOTORMAVENS #VWdrive #vwlove #GolfR #turbo #awd 11h

  •   ijaen Unfollowing this account for such a foul remark. 12h
  •   heyobed10 @iramerika_shah dang sweetness 12h
  •   motormavens @ijaen we'll miss you 11h
  •   twotonereyes @shaneyb oh man if only you knew how hard it was to become a citizen. It took one of my family members 6 years to fully obtain citezenship. Funny how anyone can go to Mexico but not everyone can go to US right? Lol bullshit 10h
  •   naga_ten I used to like the internet... now it's all about complaining about how life's a struggle and social justice warriors defending shit they ain't got nothing to do with in the first place. Can we just enjoy the fucking cars and occasional humour without getting our jimmies rustled? 8h

motormavens SO MUCH FUN blasting through these windy roads in #racemode with the 2015 #VWGolfR. The steering, brakes, and throttle response are amazing; the #4MOTION #awd systeam keeps the car planted in high speed sweeping corners, and the acceleration will instantly bring a smile to your face. AND it has 4 doors so you can pick up 3-4 females and bring them to the beach in this car. Good job, #Volkswagen. #VWdrive #GolfR #vwGolf #MOTORMAVENS 16h

motormavens I was doing about 120 through these roads when the clouds rolled in. It looked so cool and spooky I just had to stop and take some photos. I'll admit it though - I thought I heard some rustling behind me and I jumped! LOL don't wanna encounter any zombies or Sasquatches on this #VWdrive event! #VWGolfR #GolfR #MOTORMAVENS @antoniosureshot 17h

motormavens We've had this 2015 #VWGolfR in #racemode the entire time we've been at this #VWdrive event, taking it through its paces. Why on earth would we even want to switch it to comfort mode? #cmonson #VW #Volkswagen #GolfR 18h

motormavens We dig the dope power folding mirrors onthis 2015 #EuroSpec #VWGolfR! We also dig the 303hp that the #euro models of the #GolfR have. US specs are: 292hp and 280 lb/ft of torque. Just chip it to unlock more FUN! The question is... WHICH aftermarket tune would you choose? #VWdrive #MOTORMAVENS 20h

motormavens So lucky! Today we're in #SanDiego test driving this #EuroSpec 2015 #VWGolfR at a special #VWdrive event! The #GolfR's #turbo gargle exhaust note sounds AMAZING. No wonder the first 500 units sold out in just 11 HOURS!!! #MOTORMAVENS @BoostBash #vw #vwgolf #Volkswagen #VWLove #dubnation #wustefest #sowo #worthesee 22h

He is suuuuper cool! #MOTORMAVENS 1d

motormavens We're considering using this 2.0 liter #turbocharged LTG engine w/ 6speed trans for a build that will debut at our @BoostBash event. It has 272hp and 295 lb/ft of torque stock. Which RWD platform would YOU suggest, in terms of lowest cost, most aftermarket parts availability, and best looks? 3d
  •   adamzwad Mx5 3d
  •   tsarver001 Chrysler conquest/Mitsubishi starion ftw! 3d
  •   mikey_b203 @preciado95 no problem. You might want to have some oil squirters put in the 7afe block especially because the oil galleys in the 7afe crank were drilled in a way that it doesn't get oil in places there should be. The crank itself is strong though. Toyota did that to cut cost and so the crank didn't need to be rotated and drilled again which would take more time and $. 2d
  •   mikeyg600 Hell no man. Ka's pull the shit outta sr's. Hence why I'm ka-t. Built bottom end on a holset h1c. At 18psi now soon to be 25psi when I get my new comp clutch in this week. @motormavens 2d
  •   preciado95 @mikey_b203 thanks for the head up, yeah I'm still looking into what I have to do to built a 7age 2d
  •   gabeoffduty Datsun 510 or Corolla TE72 @motormavens 2d
  •   antoniosureshot @mikeyg600 dope! Holler at @rspecauto if u need deals on parts! 1d
  •   mikeyg600 Thanks man! @antoniosureshot 1d

motormavens Great meeting with our friends at #CPcarrillo! They just showed us their new #CPpistons for sport compact #turbo applications, along with a new line of connecting rods they are introducing! Look for more info on www.BoostBash.com soon! @BoostBash #MOTORMAVENS 7d

motormavens Check out this new compact #PrecisionTurbo 40mm #wastegate! VBand in, VBand out platform! Perfect for 1.6 to 3.0 liter motors. Hmmm... Maybe for a #turbo 4AG motor? Or #KSeries?! @BoostBash by #MOTORMAVENS 1w

motormavens #PrecisionTurbo GT45 front half x #Tial #turbo back half... What kind of car would you use this in? 1w

motormavens Wondering if any of our friends have had any experience with #WPCtreatment on your #engine internals, transmission, or rear end? We're building up a @RunBC #4AG stroker engine for @antoniosureshot's @86FEST AE86, and are considering different routes. This will be a track car - New build! 2w

motormavens The #R32 just might be our favorite #Nissan #Skyline #GTR. Would you rather have an R32 or R33? 2w
