: me vs. VW rabbit

11-16-2008, 07:56 AM
I have a fully bolted 2008 2.2 Pontiac G5, mods in sig, and i raced my friends manual 07 Rabbit no mods done but is listed at 170hp to the crank and 177 torque

Off the line: both had no traction at the start since it was somewhat wet out so we were dead even but once we both gained traction i pulled out in front about a car and 1/2 lengths which was pretty much how it was the whole race up until i hit my governor at 108 which made him eventually pass me.

30mph roll: he killed me.

i raced him back in august when i didnt have the exhaust yet but had the intake, header/dp(which does shit without an exhaust), and shiftplus and of the line he had me by about 2 car lengths the whole way. I also raced my friends cobalt who has I/E/shift+ and it pretty much eneded uo the same way i raced the rabbit, off the line pulled about 1 1/2 cars and from a 40 roll i got beat. which i guess shows how much the header/dp helps low end but you might be sacrificing some power high end.
