I currently drive a completely stock '03 GTI 1.8t 5MT . I bought it new in '03. To this day it puts a grin on my face when I nail the accelerator, I guess Im easy to please in the performance dept but its getting a little dated looking for me and starting to spend a lot of time at the repair shop for little things here and there.
Im thinking about a 2.5L Golf 5MT. It seems to be sligtly down on HP/TQ which as me on the fence. But I was reading that with premium 91 octane gas the HP/TQ has been proven to improve.
My 1.8t dyno'd 161.8 HP and 177.9 TQ back in '03 and ran the 1/4 mile at 15.0 @95 mph bone stock with dealer plates still on it how close can I get to that with a bone stock 2010 Golf with premium 91 octane gas?
