ENGINE CARNAGE! – Record holding VW goes BOOM!

FWD Volkswagens running low 9’s? Pushing almost 900hp out of a 1.8L engine? With power to displacement like that, these VW’s are starting to rival rotary engines in terms of output! With high hopes, this Volkswagen GTI was TEARING down the strip at Maryland International Raceway with the intent to go rounds and compete in Import Vs Domestic’s True Street Class. While we may not get to see these small monstrosities, Mike Pauciullo is no stranger to them at all! Running this platform and setup for years in search of its limitations, it would appear he’s found a weak point. We never like to see racers hard earned money destroy itself, but in this situation at least the engine’s last pass was something he can brag about!

  1. If you're not going to run over your crank, that's close enough! If you puffed your head gasket, you didn't "blow your motor". At least aluminum rods are relatively cheap.

  2. 1.8 20v engine blocks are known not to break. Crazy that this happened and the way it did is even crazier. People on forums seriously brag about its durability. I wonder what exactly happened…. hmmmm….

  3. Dyno sheet 🤔🤔🤔🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

  4. NOTHING BUT RESPECT to the owner. You know the golf was doing OK on the 9s … He prolly raised the boost to achieve 8s . Still very impressive for a 1.8T
