    2.2 SRi vs GSi

    Hey all, just a quickie if anyone knows the answer.

    What is faster in the first foot-down seconds...I would've thought it would be the 2.2 seeing as the GSi is a standard 2.0 until the turbo kicks in, would that be right?! I just wandered that's all

    i would have said the gsi would still be quicker off the mark.
    i did get away quicker than a coupe tuebo at santa pod, but that is more than likely just be due to better reqction than the other driver

    The GSI is faster spooled up or not, the turbo isn't big enough to create Evo style lag. Once the turbo is spooled up the 2.2 would become a smaller dot in the rear view mirror.

    GSi has much more torque, so it pulls better.
