    1997 Neon vs 2005 1.8T Passat

    Well my buddy rented a 1.8T passat and before he returned it we wanted to see how his bone stock 1997 neon 5 speed would do against the auto passat. We did two runs first run from a dig he dumped his clutch to high and spun the tires and the passat walked away. The next race from a dig it was dead even from 0-60mph then the passat started to creep very slowly. Wow was that passat a dog, I was driving the passat and i was shocked how the neon was dead even with it until 60mph. I even brake boosted the passat off the line.

    1.8T passat 0-60 dead even with 1997 neon (133hp) 5 speed bone stock.

    Well you are looking at 170hp 3300lbs vs 130hp 2400lbs I am surprised the Passat pulled at all. If they were both of simular age the neon might have won.

    DOHC neon, 150hp

    SOHC neon, 130hp



    the auto neons are slow as moleasses in january, but the 5 speed DOHC's can hit mid/high 15s stock
