Golf GTI

wow i was surprised... i was drivin down 1 of 2 of the "street racing" streets we have here in oshawa and 3 guys in a grey gti pulled up. stock, euro spec tails and shaved everything. he kept lookin over and chaning lanes. so at a red light i said why not. i reved it to about 4 and dropped it. to my amazment hes front was right at my passenger window. i dropped it in second and pulled about a half car length away. when i hit 3rd it came to a car lenght and stayed that was for the rest of the race. i didnt know they were that fast, i was very amazed.

2.2L 140 hp I4
3.4L 170 hp V6


the 1.8T are slower but are easier to tune cause they already got a turbo

Mike... The 150hp 1.8T's(2000-2001.5) are slower than the vr6's, but the 180hp version(01.5-04) are quicker than the 174hp vr6's, and only slightly slower than the 2002.5+ 200hp vr6's.
Both the 150 & 180hp versions can be made to hang with/beat stock e36 m3's, with bolt ons tho.
As for the race... you said there was 3 guys in it... If the driver was alone, he would've probably won.
There's a kill story on bimmerforums where a 330CI loses to 2 GTI's in the same night... they were chipped tho
