    i wouldn't have thought that there would be much in as the MK2 is a lighter car!!

    but your GSI is still standard so get playing!!!

    then put a nice little message in your back window for him to read as you leave him him choking on your dust !!!!!

    GTE's are quick due to their lightness even in standard form, beware...

    If its running that bhp they must be quite evenly matched, as everyone says they are a light shell

    Wouldn't lose sleep over it SXI_Girlie. As much as I love the Mk2 GTE I know which I'd rather own now!
