• AWE Tuning sets quickest and fastest VW TSI 2.0t K04 1/4 mile record

      Congratulations to AWE Tuning! AWE's in house MKVI GTI set the ET record with a time of 11.87 at Cecil County Dragway. They also set the trap speed record with a 120 mph run. This is a front wheel drive car running on drag radials which is quite impressive. The previous record holder was a stripped out race car so for a street car on drag radials to hit these times with a K04 turbo, well, it's quite an achievement. Specs, timeslip, and video below.

      The build list on the in-house AWE Tuning daily driver is as follows:

      AWE Tuning TSI K04 Turbo Kit with G.I.A.C. Software
      AWE Tuning Turboback Exhaust System with Diamond Black Oval Tips
      AWE Tuning C|C|B (Cold Cone Box) Intake System
      AWE Tuning TSI Turbo Outlet Pipe
      AWE Tuning TSI S3 FMIC Intercooler Kit
      AWE Tuning Mk6 TSI Vent Mounted Boost Gauge Kit
      AWE Tuning TSI Boost Hose
      AWE Tuning/H&R 28mm Adjustable “Time Attack” Rear Swaybar

      Enkei RPF1 17x7.5 front wheels with Hoosier 225/45-17 drag radials (35 lb each side)
      16x6.5 steel rear wheels with 225/55-16 all-season tires (38 lb each side)
      For this pass, AWE Tuning ran VP109 race fuel and removed the passenger seat and rear seat, the spare tire and the floor mats, standard practice for the drag strip.

      The car weighed in at 2825 lbs without the driver and 3032 with the driver.
