    My car dynoed 181.9 whp and 234 ft/lbs of tq. With it being not almost 100 degrees and having the 3" turbo back instead of the catback (allowing it to spike at 21-22 psi instead of 19) it's probably putting down about 190-195 whp and 245-250 ft/lbs of tq.

    Please explain to me in detail how a wrx with 185whp/185 ft/lbs tq -at the most- is faster than my car? Oh wait, you can't...all you can do is make up **** because you can't handle the fact that a jetta could be faster than a wrx...sorry to burst your bubble and all, but if you want to keep telling yourself a lie, it's all good. I promise I won't try and correct you too much.



    oh, yeah...and it weighs less...about 300 pounds or so less....soooo....that would make it even that much more faster...
    Why do I have to slow down for the WRX? Just because everyone says it's faster doesn't mean I Have to let it win, does it?

    wrx weighs 3085, jeta weighs 2785?


    anyway despite that with a lightly modded jetta that has 180hp stock vs a wrx with just catback it is possible, i've seen it done with my own eyes. But i 've seen a fully bolten on jetta way in my rearview with my old stage 2 wrx. lets not take this thread off topic lets just confront the stupid liar speedster

    my mistake, I thought they were about 3300. That's just a sport wagon with auto and a lot of groceries...

    I raced my buddy in his 1.8t wolfsburg and killed him repeatedly. I'd pull about 3-4 car lengths in a pretty short time, slow down to give him another go, and go ahead and do it again. It was a 5spd with a decent driver behind the wheel. Is your friends an automatic? if its a clutch, Is he missing his right arm? Or his left leg? I think the average dude with a 1.8t jetta would be hard-pressed to beat a WRX. Meet in the curves there ol' chap?

    And that's real!

    Edit: 180whp is a slightly different story I suppose... I wasn't paying attention, just trying to cut through all the bullsh!t in this post and get down to brass tacks! Ima try and race my buddies GTi VR6 sometime soon, and put this volkswagen business to an end. Hopefully my car will be stage 2 so I can make my victory that much more sweet.

    newer 1.8t's have 180hp stock, i think his has 180hp stock. The wolfsburg you raced was a 2000 like my friends and those are slower also have a different turbo(150hp crank version). 180hp crank 1.8t with turboback intake and some sort of boost controller (diode with simple mbc or a reflash) wouldn't have a problem with a wrx with only catback. In fact a chipped 1.8t should be able to take a stock wrx or a wrx with catback BUT after wrx gets slight mods its a lot more difficult for 1.8t( mods that actually give good power). I've posted in another thread a chipped 1.8t with mbc downpipe intake vs my 03 bugeye wrx with only downpipe and mbc boosting 16psi (stock uppipe, yes i was stupid) and i took that gti pretty easily.

    Just raced 1.8T Jetta with exhaust. I was 1-2 car behind and I put about 2-3 car on him (30-90) on highway.
    My wife was yelling at me, so I could not go on. Then typical ricer fly by.
    It must have been 150 hp.

    Watch out for GT28RS or T3T04 turbo'd GTI.

    I had an '02 GTI 1.8T before my STi. My only mod was an APR chip and I was running mid-14s (held back by major tire spin). From a roll, the car felt almost as fast as my STi (although I'm sure that it's not). It's the VR's that are slow! I'm not sure what he said that was such B/S.
