  1. At the end of the day, if i had the choice out of the two i would go for the t-sport, fit some coilovers and be pretty chuffed with the wedge of cash saved. The CTS is definately the car to go for out of the two. Its all there; performance, looks and comfort without any real compromise. :)
  2. If you can box it in and feed cold air into there from the wing then you will definitely gain a few ponies. You could ghetto it out of a piece of alu. If space is an issue you could include the battery in the enclosure too, would neaten up the bay somewhat! Just my two cents, sorry I wasn't in the best of moods earlier. I'm currently feeling under the weather with pleurisy :( Hey it's ok. No problem. Hope you make a full and speedy recovery The box it in idea sounds rather good. Including the battery would be even nicer as the battery does look slightly ugly right next to my 57i and heatsheild. I may ask my bodyshop about it and see if they are handy enough to fabricate one up for me with a nice and clever securing mechanism. I hate things which are loose and wobble around making a noise when driving. Thanks for the tip! Cheers Armz. For securing it down you could unscrew the wing nuts, drill relevant holes in the aluminum and then secure back down using fixings already on the car. Then you can have it come out and sit on the purtruding chasis leg if this is doable. Just fix a nice bit of rubber stripping where it will sit to stop any unwanted vibrations. As long as the cold air intake is large enough any small gaps on the enclosure will not be a problem. Joe
  3. the reason the CTR is quicker is because it isn't 140bhp in the lower rev range, this fact makes it very easy to get the jump on a tsport. Don't get me wrong, i'd prefer to own a Tsport as CTR's are pish for the money you pay and very overrated. But like for like, standard, straight from the factory the CTR will win all day long in perfect conditions. Look at it this way: CTR has superior suspension in terms of out of the box set up. You'd be looking at least a set of springs and shocks to match the type r. There is also the wider rims which not only allow faster cornering but also improve traction/grip. Traction control - whilst this may make it easier for non pro drivers such as ourselves going that little bit faster round the twisties its actually a disadvantage for someone who has real racing experience and will only hinder them. 190bhp isn't enough power to warrant traction control and a good LSD would be sufficient. Hell, my golf is running just shy of 300hp FWD and that copes just fine with just an LSD only. Also, if we are talking about a race then the speed is obviously going to be in excess of 70...don't try and tell me you never gone past 70 leptons having a little play!

  5. That isn't going to make a blind bit of difference!
  6. Urm, because they are a quicker car? Right once again, they are quicker than a cts even in standard guise!
  7. It should stay clearish for a few hundred miles before it goes really black again.
  8. A turbo would give you not only more torque but a more level torque curve also
  9. Why don't you fix the 'crap' with the money you would spend on the skirts, paint and labour? Surely that is going to work out a) cheaper and B) look better. Joe
  10. i say keep the VW, and put one of these in it ;) i'm not biased or anything..
  11. Driving Without Traction Control...is fun! My golf is running 286hp FWD with an LSD, no traction control. Traction control, thats for pussies! ;)
  12. no, but have on my supercharged golf. Really easy, just find a vacuum pipe and in about five minutes you can tap it in and run the tubing into the cabin. Very easy job! Not worth much though as you are only running 8psi of boost, you're not exactly going to melt anything! It will also look wimpy if you get a 30psi (2 bar) dial and its only going to 0.6 bar :P
