ahh its ok whatcar.com have a guide. It does say 1.8T has 7.9secs and 1.8 nonturbo 8.5secs.

I thought those times were for the 1.8T 150 and 180bhp versions.

150bhp - 8.5s

180bhp - 7.9s

I doubt the 1.8 20v NA engine could manage a 0-60 in 8.5seconds.

Just been out and these are the results I got for 60-100mph with Vagcom.

I did loads using 3rd gear from 50mph and then flooring it and then changing up into 4th.

The last run I did was from 50mph in 4th all the way.

I got a far better time by starting in 4th and not bothering at all with 3rd.

Bear in mind I have a 6speed box.

60mph = 96.5kph

100mph = 160.934kph

mph = kph*0.6215

Using the times below I managed 7.2 seconds.

Yes Chris, 4th is by far my favourite gear though I wasnt expecting it to be that quick but then I was going off Johns guestimate of 8.5seconds.

It just loves High Boost 9, Timing 7 and very cold air [:D]

I must try it again with some Millers CVL turbo mixed with Optimax!!

quick car garry.

With that info I'd like to think that with a good technique there should be no reason why I couldnt do a 14second quarter mile.

Come to santa pod, give me your keys, and we'll se what we can do

Im up for that this coming year [:D]

I did a 0-100 last night on the first run, I ran a couple of gears to high, got too much wheel spin in 1st and 2nd but still got 14.8s to 100.

More experiments needed this weekend I think.

I did a 0-100 run tonight and like Gary i got plenty of spin in 1 and 2, but the time was still quite good @ 17.4. So for the extra 50bhp (ish) I'm behind by about 2.6 seconds. Does that sounds about right.

I will post up my video tomorrow if i get chance. [:D]

It sounds about right to me Carl, I only gain on you very slightly.

Revo worked wonders with your car, just wait until you bolt a few more mods on there!!

Video would be good [:D]
