I'd take a punt at 6.0 and 15secs. I think if you expect your figures you're gonna be in for a big shock.

You're bang on mate, the Morego tuned GTI, putting out just over 250bp, does the 60 dash in about 6 seconds. I wouldn't expect much of an improvement over that, even if you put 300bhp through the front wheels, as you'll just be losing traction from the start line.

I don't agree. The GPS can be accurate if you maintain a speed on a level road but apart from that they vary and always play catch up. When they do it's often a second of so behind.

....Nope. Speed display on my New Road Angel shows instantly according to use of throttle with no sense of 'catch-up' being played.

To give you an idea my megablade was 0-60 in 3.6 and 0-100 in 8.9 and that had about 400bhp/tonne.

Think again mate, or get you watch adjusted 169144-ok.gif

thanks all you guys.... thought those figures would give you a chuckle.. ROFL

yes i did hand hold a stopwatch while driving... and yes i do take the figures with a pinch of salt.

my remap is giving 265 BHP and 405 Nm/torque. 1 would think 5.5 0-60 and 11.? 0-100 to be a more accurate figure.. will have to get down to santa pod and get it checked properly.

is a hoot to drive though...

Nope, not even 11.x is possible.

Thank you for the funniest thread ever.

What is the official 0-100 for the GTi? I'm thinking 16 or possibly a high 15.x? I think it would be hard for a remap to take even a second off of a 0-100 time...

It takes a hell of a lot of grunt to eat away at 0-100 times frown.gif

11s I'm afraid is positively comical Jays wink.giftongue.gif

Is this a good time to upload my pictures of my GTI winning LeMans grin.gif

I've only thrashed one '5 second' car (a 993 Carrera 4).

On paper it might only be a second or two difference, but in reality it would make mincemeat of my GTI, 2 or 3 leagues apart.

I'll answer my own question - Autocar figured the GTi at 18s to 100 blush.gif

16.x tops then!

Point of reference: Ferrari F355 Gtb 0-100: 10.6s

Jays, here's your wooden spoon grin.gif

Wendland GTi.......257ps...369Nm....6.0........153mph

if these figures earlier are correct then mine should be under 6 seconds easily...traction permitting. will retry the 0-100 again soon and keep you posted.... sorry meant laughing smile.gif

A standard car will probably run low 15's,that time you have there is probably for a slighted modded example-putting it in about the same territory as a 225 TT,which would seem about right.

The Golf having a bit more power with a remap,but the TT having much better traction off the line.

If i tell you both the Audi RS6 and the Bentley GT does the 0-100 in 11.5 seconds would you still think you could thrash these beasts. A Porsche turbo does it in 10 secs flat (996). Id estimate around 15 secs if your lucky. Id buy a new stop watch 169144-ok.gif
