Was going to race a passat VW

I was thinking of challanging a guy I work with to a race his passat against my focus then I started to look at his number and thought no way!
2.8L 190 horsepower, 206 lbs-ft torque, 6 cylinder

He talks alot of smack but there is no way I see the focus taking him. I never knew these things were this fast. Even the 4cyl.

1.8T 170 horsepower, 166 lbs-ft torque, 4 cylinder, in-line, 5V, turbocharged, gas

The worst thing is the have a V8 model! Man

4.0L 270 horsepower, 273 lbs-ft torque, 8 cylinder

All I can say is WOW!

The only chance you have is if it is an auto. I was side by side a 1.8T auto Passat when all I had was I/H/E on my sohc vtec. Those VR6's on the other hand can flex some muscle straight from the factory.

I burned a VR6 Jetta the other day in my Contour. He had me on the line but I got him in top end. I really need to do the brakes on the Tour though.

I have to agree that Passats are not all that fast. One of my friends owns one, we raced, I beat him, maybe he wasn't trying too hard. BTW, it is a V6 with the 5spd mt. Also, I have 0 mods to my car.

Tell him "You'll probably beat me, but let's race and see how I do against a V6 VW." That way you can find out what's up without having to listen to him run his mouth about how he spanked you (if he does). It'll take the wind out of his sales if he does beat you. "I figured you'd beat me, so what's the big deal that you did?"

My 2 cents.
