i have a 2004 vw jetta gli, cai, dv, revo 4 bar, turbo back exhaust, and front and rear sway bars. after all that i dyno 173 whp and 230 lbstq. and at the auto x track and the drag strip it is just a little lacking, at least to me, all my friends love my car. but i have maxed out the potential on the stock turbo and with all that torque on street tires i get horrible times at the track. and my jetta weighs 4000lbs so auto x is a little sluggish. from what yall know about vee dubs should i stay with the jetta and do a turbo upgrade or go with a 06 wrx tr. any advice is good advice. and dont say it is just what you want because i really dont know. tell me good and bad about the subie and good mods so i can hang with my buddies at the track.
buddies cars 06 mazda speed miata( last dyno 183 rwhp, handling monster)
2000 integra gsr with a jdm type r motor( not fast on the street but monster at the track)
a 1994 z28 and a couple beefed up mustangs.
sorry if i rambled but i just want good advice. thank you
jettas dont weight 4000 lbs....or anywhere close to that
