    Stage IV vs modded 337

    I was driving to work today and saw this very nice 337 come on to the highway. He immediately snuck behind me. There was a bunch on morning traffic so we went at it in spurts. There was one point that we got up to 115 or so.

    He was able to hang with me for the most part. I was very surprised because my buddy has a 337 with I think just a CAI and I was able to lose him in no time with a Stage II.

    This 337 must have had a nice turbo upgrade.

    I am a big fan of these cars.

    He might have had a K04 turbo upgrade but I don't think a K04 could keep up with a stage IV WRX.

    If he had an APR stg. III the he would have pulled from you on the highway.

    I don't think there is much in the way of tuning between these 2 options.

    As far as I know the 1.8t mod plan is as follows:

    1) BPU's
    2) K04 turbo upgrade good for 240hp
    3) APR stage III

    There might be some middle ground with different turbos but I don't think so.

    I think a Blue 20th Anniversary Edition with an APR Stg. III would make an excellent car.

    we weren't going WOT because of the morning traffic. so i don't know how much i would be able to pull on him without both of us going WOT. what ever it had it was a big diference from stock.

    i posted on vwvortex to see if he is on there. we'll see.

    If you weren't going all out then he most likely had a chip and maybe and exhaust. When I had my Jetta 1.8t with a chip and turboback exhaust I ran with a WRX wagon with an MBC from 60-110 or so and only lost by 1 or 2 cars.

    If you're wondering what the 337 looks like, just visit VW's website and check out their 20th Anniversay GTI. Pretty much the same thing. 1.8T, 6spd, etc.

    Speaking of GTIs, they're bringing over the R32. AWD, 240hp V6 with that DSG. Suppose to be similar to BMW's SMG only faster. Actually, it's suppose to be faster than a manual transmission. Crazy.
