The GTI's aren't 1.8t's ;)


Not always, but they're more common than the GTI VR6. Only the '06.5+ GTI's have the 2.0T here as well.

there are alot of possible explantaions for that...off the top of my head i think its a possiblity that the old motor had lots of carbon build up which basically raises the CR and the JDM is probably low mileage with little carbon build up, the higher CR would make it slightly more powerful :shrug: i dont know how noticable a difference that small would be though .....either that or there might be something wrong with the "new" engine. you say it feels weird, how does it run? how much boost are you running? was the old motor on stock boost? this could go on forever.

so have you raised the boost to 13psi on the new motor? did you swap the clutch over onto the new one? could explain why it doesnt feel as good as the old one.

Shame on you guys for getting beat. I have a 1990 with a jdm at about 14-15psi. It was running like hell, kept leaking boost. bad electrical conections, but almost nothing could take me. I killed 5 mustangs, two where GT's (probably 2004's) I even let one burn out first and I still took him. We win with the launch, this car just jumps off the line, maybe you just need some practice on launching. The only thing that beat me so far it a A6, but my intercooler was leaking so I couldn't boots. I even took a porsche carrera on the highway cause I can scream through trafic.

How long is it taking you to shift, my BOV can barly get off between gears when I'm racing.

Just buggin' you guys.

In unrelated news, I've lost my licence 3 times, and I blew my motor.
