So I have been looking to take my car to the strip lately just to see what my 98 runs.

Well I just got challenged to race an 07 GTi at the strip when I go, it's my supervisors brothers car. I am just wondering what you guys think the outcome will be?

Known mods on the GTi
2007
Manual trans
Bigger turbo
Tune
Street tires

Also of note is that it is getting the turbo now and hasn't been finished yet. My supervisor claims it is going to be 400 fwhp but he is known for over exaggerating in the past. I'm guessing on a scale of 1-10 of driver skill he's around a 5.

My car:
98 GT vert
Manual
PI engine swap
93 octane tune
MGW shifter
3.73 gears
Auburn differential
Bridgestone potenza 245/45/17
O/r h pipe
Magnaflows
K&n filter

I would rate my own driving skill a 5 or 6. I bet I'm a better driver than him, but I'm not sure.

I figure ill beat him off the line big time, if he does have 400 fwhp, traction is not going to be his friend. Once he gets traction and his turbo spools, I'm guessing I'm screwed. But what do you think?

Also what do you think I'd run 1/4 mile wise?

I knew a guy who had a GTi. It might have been an 07, it was a DSG. Anyways, he dynoed at the wheels almost exactly what the car was rated for at the crank, I think he put down something like 200/200 totally stock. Then with a CAI/downpipe/tune it put down like 280/330 or something. It was surprisingly fast actually.

I think it ran a 13.4 @ 102 or something like that. He upgraded the turbo, fuel system and installed an LSD and ended up getting into the mid 12's.

So, with just a cai/downpipe/tune that mk5 should pull you, especially on top end. With a larger turbo it shouldn't even be a race.
