I have a friend with a chipped 2004 VW gti 1.8 turbo, boosting 18 pounds. My 02 GT has intake and flowmasters, assuming driver skills are the same who do you guys think would win? i was looking at some youtube videos and the gti's have walked on some mustangs. Any first hand experience? and yes we are racing at a track.

were in miami, nd if countyline raceway is closed than US 27 will do, freshly paved, empty road, super smooth, high humidity, were in miami haha. i mean, just if driver is taken out of the equation, nd its purely a question of whos car is faster.

yea, my track is an 1/8th mile.
So in theory i wud be better off racing from a dig if it were on the street?.

Im just rather iffy because, being as were both in the same automotive class, i would never hear the end of it if my 4.6L V8 lost to a tiny 1.8 T

u have a V8 yes digs are better. U have stock 2v heads and cams. They don't like to pull hard up top like a boosted care. The rolls be better for him and digs for you. FWD is **** for hooking.
