mk6 tsi 122 vs mk 2.8 v6 4motion.

So I know some of you might think that this is a bit far fetched but I wouldn't bother writing about this if it weren't true.

About 5 months ago I've had received my mk6 CW Golf with a TSi turbo only engine. Whilst breaking it in I had followed a programme my friend had given me which loosens up the engine thus gaining more power from it.

Today I was cruising around and at a point in time there was this golf that tried entering the roundabout but since i was going round I couldn't let him pass. This Golf looked entirely standard. All it had were 18 inch mk r32 rims. Replica rims are common were I live.

Suddenly I hear a car revving up behind me and that's were the race started. i started speeding up and started losing the guy but not more than by a couple of meters. there I've noticed that the car wasn't a simple 1.4 petrol.

We were always close to each other and when we got to a long empty road this a car only passed me by the length of two cars at most but never more. When we stopped at traffic lights I always had a better start than him, and when I was around third gear he would pass me.

After all of this we stopped at a petrol station and got talking. I asked him what engine his car had and he told me that it ran the 2.8 v6 and was 4motion too.

I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I knew that it has 204bhp. I expected a car of that power to lose my sight instantly.

When I told him that my car ran the 1.4 turbo only engine he really wasn't happy. He thought that at the speed I was going my car at least would have had the twin-charged engine. I can assure you that the guy really wasn't happy with his car after our little street race. HAHA.



His car was identical to this one.



This is my car

lol nothin special. Just certain amount of revs he thought me at certain speeds that might have helped. At most would have made a small difference.
