Fifth Gear's Jason Plato services Volkswizard's VW Corrado VR6 to see if can produce more power
In March 2013 we supplied Fifth Gear with a Corrado VR6 to see if following
a full service and some injector cleaner, whether it would produce more
power. The car was rolling road tested at our premises to get a base
reading after which some Redex injector cleaner was added to a full tank of
fuel. After this tank was used, the car was taken to Millbrook Proving
Ground where it was rolling road tested again and after each service item
was changed. Eventually the car nearly produced the full 190 bhp - what
the footage didn't state was that the car was run on 95 RON unleaded rather
than Super Unleaded which the car requires to produce full power - this was
done to avoid clouding the effectiveness of the Redex injector treatment as
Super Unleaded fuel contains similar cleaning properties.

GOLF RSI SPECIFICATION:
From interview with HANS DAHLBACK dahlbackracing owner:
Yes, the infamous Golf may be able to put out 1,200 horsepower. Possibly. The
story that comes from Hans Dahlback, the owner of Dahlback Racing and the
mastermind behind these insane cars, is that the car, when running on a Dyno that bolts to the
hubs, produced well over 850 hp to the wheels at around 8,000 rpm before
the Dyno started
reading errors--and the car revs to upward of 11,000 rpm. Using a 15
percent drivetrain-loss calculation, at 8,000 rpm the car was over 1,000
flywheel horsepower. I'm making an
educated guess that the car produced another few ponies in the 3,000 rpm
Considering Dahlback claims the motor pulls strong until just under 11,000
rpm--with the power increasing dramatically in the last couple thousand
rpm--it's reasonable to assume, considering the extent the motor's power
curve was climbing at the point the Dyno stopped reading, that the
car would have likely gained another 100 or 200 horses in the remaining
available revs. You also have to keep in mind that Dahlback massively
underpromises any horsepower claim. I was told
by various people at Dahlback's shop that the Golf was producing
significantly more than 850 wheel horsepower on the Dyno, but Dahlback would only
confirm 850-plus hp, and thus that is what I worked my calculations from.
And yes, the car shoots flames out the side exit Exhaust during deceleration.
It was snowing most of the time I was in Sweden, so I didn't get to go for
a ride in the monster Golf, but I did watch quite a bit of track footage of
the car running in Stockholm--from what I saw, the car most definitely
produces 1,200 hp. What I did get to do, however, was rip the nose piece
off the Golf, put the car on a lift, and investigate why this VW is so
