Default Performance Testing

Does anyone have some performance number on thier RS-T's?

I'd like to compare my 1.8T with some of the 2.5 and 2.2L turbo's just to see how it's doing.

Here are my times...

0-60: low 8's
30-70: low 8's

For the 0-60, it's from a stop sign that's slightly uphill, but a great place for testing. A total of 3 runs were taken and averaged. I know my car is faster than that, but this is with a slipping clutch and bad 2nd gear syncros. Oh and a 3000 rpm takoff, any more and it's too hard on the stock clutch.

For the 30-70 3 runs were taken in EACH direction on the same stretch of road for a total of 6 runs starting in 2nd gear.

Me and STiTuner did some "runs" the other night in my car. Using a regular watch, and calling out 60 when it came, I ran about 6.5 seconds, we assume. These numbers probably aren't very accurate, but close enough. STiTuners RS with an intake and exhaust did it in just under 8 seconds.

You know, these numbers probably aren't accurate at all, but what the hell.

(Oh yeah, I'm running about 4 psi)

Thanks for the response Graham.

There are so many factors in 0-60 testing to consider which is all the more reason to also do the 30-70 test. For example, I'm not going to drop my clutch at 6k to get a good time, but that would probably get me into the 7's. With an auto, 0-60 is easy... just floor it. My Daewoo for example is about 9.7 5000 miles ago it was around 11 flat

The 30-70 is relatively "low impact" with only 1 shift point. Also the rolling start makes for more consistent times, especially with a 5sp. (make sure to be going a consistant 30mph, not accelerating hard and just starting the timer)

So that said, break out some stop watches and lets share some times.

I ran a few 0-62mph (100km) runs using my turbo timer. I ran a ~6.5s with another person in the car, and in the rain. I have yet to click off a good run in the dry, with no one in the car.

Graham coulda gone faster if he didn't shift like a girl!!!!

JUST KIDDING

I know that torque isn't what our trannies need. But I enjoyed seeing grahams face when I shifted from first to second and when I had my "OK" launch.

Graham just needs to get himself a hardened gearset then we'll try it again

I was shifting worse than a girl (some of them at least). I wouldn't call it bad actually, just SLOW SHIFTING, to preserve the life of my trannsmission. I would say first to second gear took a good second or so.........

We'll do some more runs here soon enough.

Im estimating at about 5.3 or so. (Definitely LOW 5s)
I wish I had a full setup to measure like the magazines do!

Well Kaos, don't estimate, prove it!

Grab a friend and a stopwatch and do some runs, I would love to see what you get. Or grab a friend who has a G-Tech, though I don't trust their valididty TOO much.

we did, gtecs suck tho. When it actually launched, it WENT! My friends and my neck hurt from it. (damn clutch gave out now, getting replacement soon, then Ill do some better runs)

(That and the cars Im running (beating) are in that range, so its just another piece to my estimation. But again, I just wish I had those fancy measuring devices!

Shiv tested his car with SCC's equipment a while back when he still had gears, and went from 0-60 in 4.1 seconds , of course that's with hours of tuning involved, I'm assuming my own RS-T wasn't that fast, but a very well tuned RS-T should be able to hit 0-60 in under 5 seconds depending on your annual transmission funds

Thumbs up new time

I did another 0-100km (0-62) run last night. It was dry out, and my gf was in the car filming with me. I managed to click off a 5.71s run. I'm sure with a better launch, and no one else, I could cut some more time off of that.

If you have a good tranny (dogs, sychro set, whatever) I thoroughly believe that AT LEAST a second can be shaved off a 0-60 time.

Scootr just posted the other day that he ran a 14.4 in the quarter with his Legacy kit @ 5 psi.

Anyone else?

I still need to do some more runs.......

Thats a damn good run for 4 psi Jewbaru. Maybe the Legacy turbo flows a lower CFM per lb. of boost, resulting in less power. That, or he was shifting slow.
