My mods are Cobb Stage 2 91oct., STI catback, jic 3in catless downpipe tappering at the end to fit stock exhaust, and lightened crank pulley.
1.8T, x-plus chip running race gas 100oct. program, diverter valve, and intake.
Accord, h22 swap, AEM em, intake, and Brullen exhaust.
Me vs 1.8T, We started in second at around 50kph going at the third honk. I reacted about a quarter of a second later then him but by the end of second he was near my back quarter panel. A quick shift in to third and I continue to pull him to half a car behind my rear bumper. we ran a bunch of times and when we went at the same time thats about the average margin of victory every time give or take a quarter of a car lenght. But.... if I was asleep at the wheel and he got a good jump I could not catch him before we hit the 120kph cut off point. Be carefull when running these guys.
I only ran the Accord once and I took him by about two and half cars. But, this was a weird race for me and the golf. We wanted to make sure he was in V-tec when we ran but his long gearing put us a disadvantage. We had to run from a forty roll with him at 5'300 rpm's in first. But that left me with the decision to run for a short time in first or stick it out in second and wait for the boost to come on. I went with second gear and spool up. He took me by half a car right away but I crawled back to take him by two and a half cars.
The golf ran him on pump gas mode and it was a drivers race. The Accord took him once, when he tried staying in second. But the 1.8T took him down by half a car when they both went from first. Who ever got the jump won the race and it always seemed to be the Golf.
Side note: I had a little over three quarters of a tank of gas, same with the Accord. The 1.8T's gas light was on.
