the 1.8t and the vr6 are both rated at 185hp each. and i think its 175 lb/ft of torque on each also. the vr6 obviously heavier. the turbo is quicker off the line and through the first few gears. but up top its the vr6 owning. my friend ran a 15.7 @ 92mph stock in his vr6. modded now with catback/chip/LSD?/tires and mounts it ran 14.9 at 95mph. 1.8t is rated 15.4 stock. i ran the vr6 stock for stock in the wrx. from a roll i pulled a car in 1st and 2nd and stayed that way till shut down at 100.
Those cars had better be HEAVY to be pulling numbers that low, or they're ****ty drivers.
I've seen the Celica GT-S pulling low 15s stock. The best time for an NA Celica (I/H/E/PFC/DRs) thus far has been 13.7 @ 102.
