I believe the tt with the 1.8 t is ridiculously slow where the tt coupe with the 3.2 is a beast (somewhat). Usually, the 1.8 t is quick as in the A4 but not in the case of the tt. You might be able to do it stock, but with bolt ons and a tune, you should be able to do it for sure.

The TT has three engine choices 180 hp 1.8T, 220 hp 1.8T and the 3.2. I would think the 180hp wouldn't be a problem, since it's heavier. And if it's got quattro, it's even slower.

well the big 3 and a tune will get you far with an SVT:
CAI (i wouldn't go with a shorty personally)
header (the nice 4-2-1 racing header)
exhaust (Borla cat-back)

throw in a professional dyno tune and you should be good to go!

CATIA is a dirty tramp, until you figure out its sweet spots, and how to make it moan. Then its easy as apple pie on a fall afternoon.

don't bother with the header if you get the svt it doesn't get much better than the svt's

spend the money on the duratec turbo, and really kill the audi.

i thought about switching to, and the svt has alot of better stuff, but it didnt seem worth it to me
