The MK III VR6 was 180hp and heavy, but there was no 1.8t in the MK III. When the 1.8t was first put in the MK IV it was only 150hp and the VR6 was still 180hp. Then for one model year, I believe 02 or 03, the 1.8t was upped to 180hp while the VR6 stayed at 180hp. So for that year model up the 1.8t was faster than that year model down VR6, due to the VR6 model being heavier. After that the VR6 was upped to 200hp.
