    my gf has an 04 GTI 1.8T and it puts me back in my seat (from a roll) as hard as my friends bone stock WRX...


    Now, I've been in modded WRXs and there is no competition, but stock for stock I think the wrx wouldn't be much quicker than a 1.8t from a roll and the vr6s are even faster, right??

    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.

    it depends on when you start..higher speeds in higher gears your advantage...with vw small turbo they have good low end torque but run out of steam at around 5k....but its a drivers race ..i remember racing my friends gti 1.8 w/intake when i had a cai(which i got rid of so dont flame) ..it was neck 2 neck..i was a new driver than but i dont think it takes that much of skill to go off a roll

    The A2 refers to the generation of VW. The first gen. is known as Mk1 or A1 and so on. As for ole boy wanting results of a Vr race vs. a rex? Well it will depend on whether it has has an engine swap. The newer gen.'s have around 200 horses as sht explained but the original ones were good for about 175 all the way up to 2001 when they changed the...manifold I believe. Not sure about that so maybe someone else can tell me that. Anyway the A2s are much lighter than the A4s that are rolling around today so don't be surprised if u see him coming up on you hard after 80. Good luck and let us know how it goes. I plan on running my buddies GLX VR6 5spd. jetta at some point so I'll post as to how that goes as well.

    Our VR6 GTI can keep up pretty well with a stock WRX. The WRX handles better (of course) and pulls ahead between shifts. The GTI does a lot better in the higher gears (from my experience). It has no problem with having good acceleration at 90+ MPH. The thing I don't like about the GTI is it's heavy, very heavy, and rolly (compared to a WRX). I think a properly driven WRX would take the GTI no problem. We were zooming around with someone who could not drive her WRX very well, so we kept up

    The STi would stomp both

    Anyway, that's my 2 cents.

    Is it a hybrid? The a2 VW's span from 1985 to 1992 and didn't come with a VR6. The a3 spanned from 1993 to 1999 1/2 and were available with the VR6. If it is an a2 with a VR6 swap the are usually pretty deadly because they were so light.

    For what it is worth, my 2005 Legacy GT automatic is definately quicker than my 2001 Jetta Wolfsburg 1.8t with the 5 speed.

    That is just my 2 cents.

    I owned

    0'1 VR6 Jetta, Chip/Exhaust

    00 1.8T GTI, Chip/Exhaust

    they were both faster then most people would think but my wifes stock IS300 beat the Jetta and which ever got the jump would win with the GTI, they were close

    theyre fun cars but not mind blowing fast
