    diff between mk5 sriT and vxr?

    what is the difference in the engines? i no the sriT is only 200bhp, but how hard would it be to get it to vxr power?
    or more to the point, vxr remaped power?

    The SRIT engine cannot take the power like the VXR engine can. As I'm not 100% sure but I don't think you get the teflon coated pistons, spray bars ect which benefits the VXR for hikes in power. The SRIT can be remapped and should be able to see standard vixer power with relative ease. Then just a case of playing around with exhausts, cams, larger IC & turbos, inlets ect which will allow you to achieve remapped VXR power but where the SRIT will have to stop before uprated internals are required the VXR can carry on for quite some time.

    The Mk 5 2.0 T is only 170bhp as standard not 200bhp.

    The vxr is 240bhp standard.
