Long but some excellent insight.
Funny you should ask that question. My friend I went down to a race track to run 1/4 to see whos car was faster. This has been a long time battle childhood friend. We raced our dirt bikes. Him RM250 Me CR125; he won HIM CBR 900RR ME ZX7-R he won. Him Prelude V-tech w/mods Me VR6 Corrado chip & exhaust I won finally. Then I sold the corrado and we have been trying to get together and race. Well a couple weeks back we did and hear are the results. Well we raced to the track as well. From a roll GTI Pulls away very well full car up to about 100MPH then he passes me. From stop I pull away up to 80MPH then he passes me. With an exhaust I could easily hold him off. VR6 Corrado had Autotech Exhaust. "Best Exhaust for POWER period!!!! After I got the exhaust he could not touch me. Came close a few time but I would alway pull away. Before exhaust him mod me stock it was pretty close. Well here are the results from our race. We are both very experienced drivers. 34years of age.
1996 Prelude V-Tech
1/4 mile 1st run 15.2
1/4 mile 2ndrun 14.6
"Greedy Stainless Steel Exhaust"
"AEM Cold Air Intake"
"Neuspeed Sport Springs"
2001 GTI VR6
1/4 mile 1st run 15.3
1/4 mile 2nd run 15.0
tires Stock Goodyear All Season RSA H Rated (No grip at all)
After the race was over we raced home. Bottom line, stock VR6 should beat the prelude v-tech. Both cars with mods, dam good race. Reality check. I have driven his car before. It's small, low to the ground, short throw shifter, short throw clutch. That car was built for racing. Double whishbone suspension. That's my pal and his car is Awesome. But no way in hell I would trade. He has even said he likes my car because it's so refined. He said his next car will be a 1.8T and he will do mods.
On track Prelude V-Tech wins
In real world GTI VR6 wins.
Technically i beat the prelude when I ran 15.0 and he ran 15.2
