yes it is a 1.8 liter turbo.

I don't know the horsepower as the car hasn't being dynoed.

Well it is not a mere Jetta.

I did the basic intake/exhaust, retuned chip, and bigger turbo.
Thus the bigger turbo takes a longer time to spool up, but once in boost it takes over and that is why the Altima got me off the line. Then when I was in the sweet spot, I just took off. This Jetta has some mad power in boost.

Also, when I test drove the VR6 it felt a good bit faster than the 1.8T that my girl got with no mods. We decided to get the 1.8T due to the number of upgrades that can be done to it compared to the VR6. Well, it is her car, I just got her to mod it

whoa that sounds lkea pretty awesome ride. sounds like it has more hp goin tot he wheels then the altima does and its a smaller car. wow, that thing must be a sleeper. but i wouldnt' go that far to say that the altima loses steam with a rollin start. i think its just cause you bigger turbo gets unlessed at a higher rpm. thats all.

I don't know what my dad is driving nowadays. I'm comparing it to most other vehicles on the road. It pulls much harder top end, and is not as fast off the line due to traction problems. If the Altima got you off the line you were done. Period. Got any timeslips?

Listen, you are already Altima brainwashed. I will not continue in this agrument, I have nothing to proove. I know I have beaten some new V6 Altimas and will continue to do so, unless a SC or turbo kit comes along for the 3.5 V6 as I'm sure it will, then it will be a closer match even though stock vs. stock the Altima has 2 more cylinders and around 60 more hp.

case closed.

What are you comparing the new Altima too ?

Oh I know, you find the exact opposite to be true when you are driving in your dad's Ford Muffstank GeeTea.

Hmmm... All this going on in Romania, huh?
And...... He's driven a Mustang GT???

Can you say........:right: :right: :right: :right: :right:

What size rims are those on your car.....I cant figure out what size to buy (17's or 18's....) I am looking and Cant make up my mind. I have 1400.....want to spend about 1000 and use the rest for tint and exhaust

www.wheelmax.com sells rims for good prices....but so does ebay and stuff....what do you think, your car looks good with those rims....I just need thicker spokes so my dad doesnt notice I have after market rims

They're 19X8's from Discount Tire. There are few 19's to choose from. 18's are much cheaper, and there are about 10 times as many to choose from. Don't get 17's - they're too small for the car.

No 1.8 Liter turbo, it can beat a maxima or altima, once you mod a turbo it can really move. Just dont go racing any S/C'ed ones or your going to get worked
