    MK7 VW GTI is Lying Through It's Grill!!!

    No joke this car is underrated beyond belief. Volkswagen has always been conservative but this much? Crazy!!!
    We also corner weighted the vehicle, granted this is the absolute base model it's lighter than we expected.
    Now it all makes sense why these are slightly faster in a straight line than the Focus ST.

    *VW claims 210hp & 258tq. With 15% drive train loss we are seeing 263hp & 314tq while 100% stock.

    Damn. Maybe that was true for the 2013s as well. Ran a few of those a few different times and they were the only cars keeping up with me.

    Remarkable. But isn't 15% drivetrain loss a little on the high side for FWD? JP

    2013 was also slightly underrated, they normally put down like ~190-200whp and ~200wtq stock.

    Not for the Dynojet, that's what we have used for many years, keeping in mind it's only an estimated value.
    Stock Zetec makes between 108-112whp = 124-129hp
    Stock 2.3l Duratec makes about 128-132whp = 147-152hp
    So 15% is actually on the low side for those vehicles.

    I have to say that with my experience with the ST my last 22 years of driving exclusively VAG products have shown VAG products to have MUCH better build quality and reliability. I kind of feel the ST is a piece of crap comparing it to my Audi's and VW's.

    Cheers,
    Jim
