v10 vs modded v6 tdi

Hello,

I've never driven the v10 but always kept an eye out for them. Does a 2011 and newer v6 with a tune get you close to the same power?
Or would you need more mods? Anyone that has driven both care to compare or point me in the direction of a post about it? I'd love the v10 but the maintenence cost has always kept me away.

Summary of the summary is...

You are happy with your V6 or V6 with tune. Don't drive a V10. Don't even look at videos of a V10 with tune.

As far as maintenance cost... You can not date any known super model unless you are willing to pay to play. The V10 is a super model of the car world.

The only know complaint of the V10 (other than cost) is with that huge engine, she is a bit heavy up front. Again... super model.

You would have to spend a large amount of money to get a v10 to pull like my v6....Ive driven a v10 and mine is night and day, everyone says the v10 is powerful and it is, but its heavier then the v6 in the t3 shell...infact the 0-60 times stock to stock the v6 is quicker. Tuned the v6 is an animal. The v10 is great if you can afford it, the v6 even modded is rock solid and damn quick

Especially if you have a mod'ed V6 like TDIMark with an upgraded turbo.

I'm eventually also going this route whenever I can find the free time to get it installed.
