    Default MK4 1.8t Vs. Eclipse

    So today was not a good day =( I encountered a jdm looking pos, it was an eclipse spyder like an 02. Something i didnt know nor expected, was that this kid put some money into it with some kind of turbo set up(Not sure what, but it spooled a lot louder than mine) Surprisingly enough it only got me by half a length. I have a basically stock mk4 jetta 4sp auto(I know, should've bought a manual)with just a catback. Once I get my tune and dp, i am going to run with him again and show him what 19psi does

    Those cars come stock with a 4g63 DSM factory turbo. My buddy installed the 16g upgraded turbo and they boost 15psi stock. Some of them are AWD and they can be quick. The only thing that sucks about those lasers, eclipse, and talons, is that those motors are not reliable. My buddies are constantly working on their motors to keep it running. They are nothing but problems.

    They run good...when they run. Can make some real good power. I messed with one on the highway once out my way when I had the vrt. Never dyno'd, but prolly mid 300s to the wheels and he absolutely raped me.
