Re: what would I have to do to make a 1.8t 4 door golf out perform a GTI? (sssnice)

follow the work of Billy T and do some stuff on your own. You'll beat a Z06 like him if you're good.

GTI (assuming 1.8t motor) has:
-sport suspension
-a little less weight
possibly more power if AWP
4-door golf has:
-more structural rigidity
Most you would need is some sport springs and a chip (or even a BCS would do it) and you would be looking at near equals.

The nice thing about GTIs is that so many owners upgrade things (meaning, you can buy the take-off stuff cheap and add it to your 4-door -- see my sig).
As for power, the '01 GTI and Golf both made the same horsepower: 150. In '02 (when the 4-door was no longer available w/ 1.8T) the GTI got a power bump to 180. As another poster stated, a chip can easily make up the difference and then some (my next mod).
The best part is seeing the double takes when they first see a GTI going by then count the doors.

Just outDRIVE the other guy.
Prep and pile on the parts all day...if you're a bonehead who leaves the ASR on come launch-time, you LOSE.
