Yes I know. It is written in the background. I believe the engine displacement for peak power is irrelevant for turbo sizing; as long as the turbo can spool it. I mean, the turbo sized for air velocity/pressure. If it fills 4 or 6 cylinders doesn’t matter. It DOES affect drivability (lag), but not PEAK power.That table was stolen from Darkside, and from memory is for 1.9 or 2.0.
I don’t think winter drivability will be affected that much in the snow. The H&R drop is only 1.4in. T3 have approx. 8in ground clearance (6.5 after the drop), for comparison a Golf sportwagen has 6.9 and is fine.Phew where to start
You're dropping it with H&R and Bilstein B6 - check. That will make for a great handling Touareg.. but will also destroy its prowess in the snow (which I know you get in Canada)
Next - what do you mean "spacers"? Do you mean wheel spacers?? If you're referring to lift spacers, they will not work with a lowering kit
Turbo - you are WAY off. You are looking at British pounds - once you do the conversion, pay the fat ass VAT tax etc.. you're looking about $3k USD for that turbo
There are NO drop-in CP3 kits for your car. So, while you can spend the $2k USD importing the CP3 upgrade.. you will be custom engineering the actual install and engineering your own parts to get it to work
For 400-450 wheel horsepower you are NOT going to be in it for less than $5k USD and thats doing most of the work yourself.
The killer question is "how much benefit". Loosing the primary CAT will definitely has a huge impact on emission/smell.There is always a huge benefit in doing a downpipe, the stock ones are restrictive
