GTI vr6

hey, I am thinking about getting a gti vr6 2000-2002. The only thing I'm worried about is the 0-60 time. The top speed I really don't care about to much as long as it can go about 90mph without any trouble which im almost sure it can do stock...hope so anyway lol. But to my question. the 0-60 time on the vr6 is worse than the 1.8t and i was wondering if there is any advantage to get the vr6 over the 1.8t. Also what could I put in to make it go from 0-60 in JUST over 5 secs. Since on the stock the time is 7.7 i think or something right around there. Also could i put a supercharger in there? thanks alot

7.7? VR6 manuals in a little GTI will do way better than that. That's either the crappiest magazine time ever for a VR6/manual, or it was an auto.

Anyways, just get the 1.8T and chip it.

oh maybe its 6.5 this other website just said 6.5 so maybe it is that instead. I just really don't want a 4 cylinder since thats all we have and i hate them sooo much....soo slow. i know its the car too (saturn, ford escort, camry xle). I am all for the 6 im just thinking if the only dif is the 6 is more expensive and worse in gas but about same speed of course ill go 4. It just seems like logic that the 6 would be more powerful and faster like if u do same mods to both engines right? ahh im confused lol. Im new to this whole car thing. i love cars just dont know much about them. so please help me out

The VR6 is a much more powerful motor and has lots more potential, but also more expensive to work on and mod. For cheaper performance get the 1.8T. Check out VWvortex.com

You seem to be forgetting that the 1.8L 4-cylinder in the GTI has a TURBO, hence "1.8T", and is in no way comparable to any naturally aspirated 4-banger out there.

Just go test drive and see what you like better.

time to distance is a better measure of how quick a car is from point A to point B.

But 12valve and 24valve VR6's are a drivers race. They will both run about low-mid 15's

0-60? IIRC from magazine times, they run about low 7's

Yes the 1.8T has a Turbo.... but that doesnt mean its fast. The VR6 motor has far more options and can handle much more power then the 1.8T. Like i said earlier, if you are on a budget get the 1.8T, chip it... etc and youll have a pretty quick ride. If you can afford to spend a little more money, get the VR6. You'll see the difference.

yeah I think I'll be able to spend the little bit more for the vr6 since im already taking out loan so it couldnt hurt to just add a thousand to that or so. Also I know this guy who goes to closed car auctions so I will be able to get it cheaper through him anyway, so it will probably be the same price as a 1.8t through car dealerships. Thanks alot for all your help. Also do you guys have any suggetions on what i should add to it? right now i am thinking (for under the hood) chip, cool air intake, supercharger, and new exhaust pipes. is there anything else you guys could think of to make it faster acceleration? thanks alot

VR6's sound sweet with a catback also. Its just a constant bassy thrum all the way up the tach, very nice.

for vw's there are 2 differenet VR6 motors for the Mk4 chasis you speak about.
the 12v, which is the most common put out i think around ~180hp/180ft-lbs in its last years
the 24v, which is in the current GTI's and last gen. GLI's put down 200hp/195ft-lbs

there are three different engine codes forVW 1.8T's, AWW, AWD, and AWP
the AWD is the first gen, 150 model, K03 9.5:1C/R
AWW is the second gen running less C/R than the AWD(9.3), but a ko3/ko4 turbo, 170hp
the AWP is running 9.5:1 and K03/Ko4 turbo, 180hp

depending on which 1.8T you compare to which VR6 means a lot. you cant just say one is more powerful than the other by a lot, etc. also, the VR6 may make more power than a 1.8T in the long run, but its all relative. the VR6 motor weighs probably another 200lbs than a 1.8T, which is loosely saying 2/10ths in the 1/4. if you have a strict budget, get a 1.8T. they will put out 400hp on stock internals, which is more than enough for a FWD street car. chip, intake and full exhuast will easily get you over 200whp.

if you do decide to go w/ a VR6, there are a couple different supercharger options. C2 motorsports who use Vortech blowers and Z engineering are two of the more common ones. they will run you anywhere from $3000 up, and start off with about 240whp.

The 1.8t's have tons of modding capability. They get around 170hp (?) with the stock k03 turbo. Get a k04 turbo kit from neuspeed and a new intercooler and i believe they put down around 250-260 whp. Not to mention that the 5v/cyl heads give them great low end power, plus good power up top (though they tend to run out of breath with the stock set up in the high revs)

5v/cyl heads would only hurt low-end. it's the small quick spooling turbo that's responsible for the "great low-end", and the same quick spooling small turbo is responsible for the lack of top-end also.
