  • Boba Motoring hits 200 miles per hour in their MK2 Golf

    What Boba Motoring continues to do with their MK2 Golf is simply astounding. As if it was not enough that this is the fastest Golf in the world recently running 8's in the 1/4 mile (8.89@165) they decided to take it up to the 200 MPH mark setting a top speed record for the Golf. They actually turned the boost down for this run to 2.6 bar (37 psi) from the 55 psi used with the large Precision turbo for the record 1/4 mile run. If they want to, they have the power to easily exceed the 200 MPH (322 km/h) they hit. Check out the video below.

      nice find! damn i want that road Click here to enlarge i'd attempt the same thing! actually on that note, he has an extremely quiet cabin for those speeds. i know whenever i pass 140, (end 4th, start 5th) it starts to get noisy from wind. in the video, you can hear the turbo more than you can hear the wind noise, or am i mistaken? i'd be curious to hear from anyone else that passes the 140-150 mark and the noise difference. the only reason i bring this up is i have a '07 bmw and i'm comparing it to the video which shows a mk2 vw ('83-'92). I'd have thought the newer bmw would have a tighter cabin, but hey, maybe this tuning company (re)sealed up this badass mark2 for testing and eventual fun, just like the video shown, it would make sense.

      Probably the turbo is so loud that even at those speeds you can hear it more than the wind noise.
