Dacia Logan Gets Volkswagen VR6 Engine [Video]
So, what can you do if your bank account disagrees with most of your proposals but you still feel the need to tune. The answer is simple: you buy an inexpensive (please notice that we are avoiding the term “cheap”) vehicle that is usually driven by persons who have nothing to do with high speed sessions, you throw away its engine and install a powerplant that comes with a double or triple output.
Of course, you should also upgrade the other tech areas of the car. This is one good recipe to create a perfect sleeper, a vehicle that looks ordinary but can smoke many four-wheeled creations on the street.
Today, we are presenting you one example that perfectly illustrates this game. We shall travel to Eastern Europe, Romania in order to see what one automotive enthusiast that uses the SGM nickname (this is actually a part of his license plate) has done for his Dacia Logan.
The Logan was fitted with a Volkswagen VR6 engine that has a capacity of 2.8 liters and delivers no less than 174 hp, as 4tuning.ro reports. We have to mention that the VR6 unit is one of the favorite toys of garage tuner boys, but this is obviously used for VW cars engine swaps.
The gearbox also has also been replaced with the VR6’s original one. Other modifications include a sports air filter, custom rims and all-round disc brakes. The project is currently in the early development stages and is expected to lead to a stunning aftermarket creation. You can hear the powerplant in action in the video below.
