Anyone got them?

Jace??

Whats the 0.60 time standard and what would it be like with a jabba or revo remap?

Saving and thinking of getting a PD150 instead of my 110bhp "GT TDi" lol...

With 150bhp i could easy call it a GT [:D]

Welll I could give you a full acceleration test for a Golf TDI150 but with metric figures it might be of no use for you...

Anyway my Golf as stock did around 20sec from 0-100mph and with a digital tuningbox fitted (Rapid) did the same mark around 16sec.

0-60 is definately below 7sec with a good start (w/tb).

FYI my ex-Ibiza GT TDI with a tuningbox could run even steven with a mate?s stock Golf TDI150 up to 110mph or so, afterwards the Golf started pulling easly.

Me too. G-Tech meter seems to give 6.7 reliably. I feel sure with a little more skill/abuse I could improve it a fraction.

Looking forward to seeing what I can achieve following hybrid/clutch/LSD revamp[6], hopefully somewhere near NikB's new benchmark figures with NOS[:p][;)]

Have a look for Haddock's post - he videoed a 0-100-0 on a Revo I think. 60 came up in 6 - 7 secs , 100 in 16 -17. Decently quick.

Standard is 8.3 ish to 60, no idea to 100... 20 secs maybe?

Nah, something I keep meaning to try out, just need a willing passenger to do the timing [:O]

I know she'll hit 104mph (RA2) by the time I reach the end of the M42 slip road @ J13, no idea about 0-60 though.

.I think for me though its the 30-50, 50-70, 70-100 figures which are more important, for real world driving.

OK, then propose a specific figure, so that we can all try it and share results (and video).

What do you think about a 50-100mph figure in 4th gear?

Definately need more videos... Have you any videos of the "top-end" Mtek??

13.8secs, thats on an analogue stopwatch, timed by myself.....not 100% accurate though as the RA2 has a slight delay when excelerating.[:#]

Hi Haddok, still had no chance to test the "top-end", but will so soon enough with a video of course. Anyway have on my vid collection a remaped ~190bhp A3 TDI130 going up to speedo 150mph on a highway long stretch.

Hi Jace, that's a nice figure. My Golf did the same run at ~10sec mark, but with speedo values.

I leave you two more vids from my humble 180bhp tuningboxed Golf:

50-100mph in 4th gear - ~10sec

http://rapidshare.de/files/1312481/MyGolf-box_80-160em4_.wmv.html

And a very nice run to compare acceleration power between cars without any lack of traction issues that exist from a standing start. Would love to hear from you!

25-100mph acceleration run through the gears (2nd, 3rd and 4th) - ~11sec

Cant get your links to work [:S]

Just one question, were you using the tacho in the car or a GPS based system ?, as your car tacho is about 7% out, so 100 = 93mph in reality.

Hi Jace, just like I said they were speedo (tacho) values, and of course I'm aware of the existing error, although it varies with some factors in my experience (from GPS readings) like wheel/tire size/diameter and even from car to car.

The links work fine, just click on the first window in the "Free" button, then a second window is opened and wait 30sec or so, then a download link becomes available at the end of the page.

This site is one of the best I know to freely share vids and so up to 30Mb.

My tacho isn't out by so much...maybe 3 or 4 mph at 100. That's using an RA2.

My speedo was out by 2 mph at 130mph whilst testing it at
Bruntingthorpe last year. That's against the gps based race logic
system.

Talking about speed error, are the climatronic speed readings reliable..?

According to the climatronic figures at speedo 125mph it reads ~114mph.. [:S]
