    My astra is fast !

    thot the gsi turbo was geting slow but it must just be me getting use to it as my mates got the corsa vxr with de-cat and fmic so should be 200bhp+ for that am i right? and i can beat him with ease and last nyt me and a mate who owns a civic type r (04plate) went a spin up loch lomand but when he started to give it some and i wasnt paying attention i could still catch him and fly past at 140mph lol ! and my gsi is standard apart form courtney sport air fillter and rs turbo plugs so am as happy as larry !
    dying to get it on the RR now !

    street racing? mummy must be proud

    a large percentage of performance comes from the driver, hence why the Stig would lap a 1.6 8v Mk4 round the Top Gear test track quicker than your nan will lap a VXR8.

    Like above, type R is no match for GSi turbo, at top end speed the GSi would always win as the type R is only 2.2 (iirc) with about 200BHP and you have a turbo with around 220?.
    I wouldnt advertise about your speed on a open forum, Edit if you want
    1) you get number of members who say it is a bad thing
    2) Police DO watch forums for bad driving/behaviour

    Well done tho on getting 140mph on normal A single traffic road, with trees on either side and large amount of water on one side and that doesnt include the turns! Keep racing on the track!

    God this old shitty discussion

    Type R is better in other aspects.

    Put it around a track against a mk4 gsi, see what happens then, far more superior handling setup.

    Type R also doesn't have forced induction. Give it forced induction then see how the GSI fairs against it.

    And for the record UKDM Type R's K20A2's are 197bhp and a 2.0
