We now know that the Volkswagen Golf R is coming to the United States in early 2012. Some are questioning the switch from the VR6 engine found in previous R32 models to a more powerful version of the GTI's 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine -- but given the high tuning potential of the 2.0T (to say nothing of the number of R32s that have been modified over the years), we thought we would show what the aftermarket could have in store for the R once it arrives.
