Odd question, I know, but I'm very curious to know what a good 500lbs less that the 98 ahu jetta is carrying around can do when compared to the same motor with the same power in a car 500lbs, give or take, heavier. Any experience or input?
I know that every hundred lbs is equivalent to 10hp, or .10 of a second in a drag race. Using that basis, it seems that stock vs stock the older mkIII jetta should eat up the heavier mkiv jetta.
Opinions and input?
