    Nice ride Ed. I also appreciate your manner. You are welcome here any day What kind of torque are you putting down? That may have something to do with it. The STI is a torque monster with almost no lag. The gearing is also great with the six-speed putting it in it's "sweet spot" almost all the time.

    bad a$$ car and outstanding setup.... as for your race wit hthe STI ... i don't think he was stock.... maybe a boost controller or even a ecu flash... never know.

    i saw a nice black gti yesterday walkin to class. he had a big fmic, car wasnt too loud either.
    if u dont mind me asking, about how much money u put into that? im tryin to decide whether to get an sti/evo or gti
    i love the gti's but they are heavy so i think id need a lil more power to get faster

    i am thinking he might have had a little something extra cause now that i saw him again his car was a little loud..but anyways i just did some more tuning today with the wideband, and found a vac/boost leak....so now i have a nice power gain...its funny it was so noticable when u had a vac leak before i did the turbo upgrade (the car would stutter and eventually stall, becase the MAF and MAP sensor would be showing very different readings) i was running a maf before, now if my intercooler piping was to fall off, the car wouldnt make a stutter at idle...

    btw the torque should be about the same as the hp, when i dyno ill know for sure, the 1.8T is very torque happy as well, thats what causes us to suck off the line...fwd and 300wtq = lookin stoopid from a stop

    Maybe your next project could be to turbocharge an R32.

    i was seriously thinking about sellin my car to get one...but the vw/audi 4motion transmissions cant handle the power id make it push lol, we built a MK3 turbo VR that pushed like 580+whp on pump gass out of a T series turbo, and now he just picked up a GT42R, so he will make 6-700whp....and thats a 2.8L if i had an R32, id run a GT42RS and prob make 600 awd whp....

    serioulsy i wish the sti came out earlier, i wanna see some guys put a GT35R or a GT30/40R on these things with some 550s and a fuel pump, do some custom dyno tuning and make 450 awd whp...the SRT4 guys just made 501whp and 526wtq out of a GT30/40R

    Im on Deer Park alot too... I'd like to see how my setup would run against that car. Nice setup...I love the gti's. I got some more work to do before the spring but I put 3-4 cars on the stock sti's Ive raced. I'd like to see what I'd do against that monster...

    just wanted to give u guys a race update:
    I found 2 boost leaks, one was a nipple for an N75(the oem wastegate solenoid) and the other was a cracked boost/vac line.

    Well i tuned the car with the wideband, fixed the leaks and raced my buddies stock STI. We ran from a 15mph roll (i was on drag radials) and by the time we hit 105 i had put a good 5-6 cars on him still pulling hard

    I still didnt get a chance to throw her on the dyno and wont ever dyno tune this setup cause its already gone..

    I had to send my t3/t04e back to turbonetics, i believe a bearing went bad in the CHRA (center housing rotating assembly) so it went back for warranty replacement.

    Right now i ordered JE 9:1 pistons, pauter connecting rods, the new GT30R its called the GT3071R and supposedly a 1000rpm faster spool then the original GT30R, i am sumping the gas tank, 2-255lph wahlboro fuel pumps, 2 fuel rails, a split second secondary fuel injector controller and the stock 317cc injectors in the stock location and 440's on the new fuel rail
    we estimate 450whp on race gas and a nice amount of boost probably between 27-32psi. soon there will be a fwd 1.8t in the 11's ill post pics as the parts come in

    Those GTI's have a lot of lower end torque. Race him from a stop (0 mph) and then see who gets run on. Although i do love VW's and yours is tight as hell. But i do have to back my WRX brothers.
