With these mods what kind of 35mph-70mph runs should I get?
Engine:
-Drilled air box with drop in K&N filte charger
-Neuspeed Chip
-2.25 TT Dual downpipe and cat back exhaust
-High flow cat
-EuroSpec modified 5 speed tranny from Germany
-Neuspeed short throw soild shift linkage
-Corrado 210mm clutch
-ABD cross-drilled rotors
-Braided brake lines

Those would be the extent of my motor mods. I was running 35-70 in 3rd gear in about 6.8-6.9sec's and a 50-70 run in about 5.8sec's. The conditions were not the best in the world, somewhat straight road, minor hills. Do those numbers sound right or should I be pulling faster. I'm trying to see whether or not I need to work on getting the motor to run sound!
Cheers

It's the saved weight from not wearing shoes.

If you don't wanna read through that whole thread, there are two basic tests:
hold it steady at 35 in 3rd gear, floor it, once it hits 40 start the stopwatch and stop it when you hit 70
and in 2nd gear hold it at 3k rpm, floor it and start timing, stop timing at 6k,
email the results to "Trav", then you can compare 3 pages worth of results

HEy man.
I got a 91 Jetta 8v, thinking of doing the K+N drop in + Swisscheese airbox mod as well. Why did you decide to do this? How did it perform afterwards? How's the sound?

sounds great, in all reality it probably only adds 1.005623 hp
