Closed course: SVTF vs. MKV GTI

I have a friend with a bone stock GTI MKV and he runs a lot for fun (unlike me, I can't afford to break my car yet) but the other night I figured one run wouldn't hurt me so I lined up against Dennis in his GTI and yes I lost! But I was impressed because it was a lot closer than I thought. He jumped out by about a car due to having torque then I closed to his rear fender at the top of 1st and stuck there for the whole race. My SVTF is lighty modded with just FC TB, AEM SRI, FRPP wires, AZFS22C plugs. I was impressed that I could stay that close. When I get my ORP and rear torque mount, we're running again. Anyone in a N/A SVTF kill a GTI MKV? I'd like to hear if you did (no street racing cuz I don't want this closed)

yes the mk5 is the new 2.0T version... and there are levels to the chips... I think your friend got a cheap one... I've seen them put over 300whp to the ground with the more expensive ones. They stop the ecu from restricting boost - the speed3 and speed6 are the same way... the ecu controls the boost to have a perfectly flat tq curve for somehting like 2500 -6000 rpms.

They get fast quick... but They are a little piggy tooo... lol..

That Direct injection 2.0 T in the VW is qute a good platform for modding. Lots of room for improvment.

What's the difference between an MKV and a regular GTI?

MkV is the fifth generation of the chassis. GTI is a variant built on it.

I don't think out antiquated C170 chassis is king of much anymore. When it first came out, Volkswagon conceded Ford had beat them at their own game. But, 1998 was a long time ago.
