    VXR compared to Coupe turbo

    Now i know they are 2 diffrent engines and obvious size of car diffrence but what is the feeling of power like? ive driven a VXR and LOVED it. Sooo much power and it was stock! but i had a huge grin on my face. What is the power of a coupe turbo( or GSI) compared to it?

    I'd not change my coupe turbo for a VXR, but I think if I were looking to buy now I'd get the VXR as the coupes are older.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    I'd personally go for the coupe......well besides the obvious "i just bought one" lmao but the shape looks so much nicer ino but if your looking for power i think the vxr has a little bit more doesn't it?? I'm sure someone will verify it.

    Well since it would have the same engine it should be the same power

    i would have thought there'd be a fair difference considering the VXR is 40bhp up on a standard coupe or GSi

    put the LEH (VXR) engine in the coupe, best of both worlds.

    ... or modify the LET (GSI/COUPE) to VXR power using the VXR turbo, injectors, MAF and that. they all bolt straight on to the LET

    this is assuming yours isn't already tinkered with

    i'm saving for an LEH for the van, now that'll be a difference. 100bhp to 240bhp
