why so hung up on 0-60mph figures  :undecided:  do you live in a town full of traffic lights and 60 zones??  :laugh:

best thing you can do is to lose weight - power mods will only get you so far but then you need to start loosing weight to give you a better power to weight ratio

so which 1.8T do you have as there are several............

forget bout 0-60 and 0-100 as these cars even after a remap arent designed for 0-60,0-100 more for midrange and realworld driving grunt(overtaking etc)!!! u want 0-60 and 0-100 then its engine rebuild and big turbo etc etc mega ££££££ time then the car becomes slower round town,torque steering and laggy plus wheel spins everywhere and in realworld driving conditions slower than a remapped k03s and only really faster over 100mph ish but whats the point as ull get well and truley banned in time and how often do u do those speeds!!!!!if u want 0-60-0-100 get a 4wd turbo beast and very deep pockets!!!!.Believe me ive had a 350bhp M3, 380bhp mitsubishi evo5,380bhp n 480bhp power cossies etc which some are designed for 0-60-0-100 but are laggy and unresponsive around town and low speeds! but loving my GTi remapped AUM (210bhp-ish)as its perfect for the driving i do and is really punchy when its NEEDED!!!!

yeh, i appreciate that, thats y im going to get it done, for the midrange grunt. i was just wondering how much it would affect acceleration from a standing start?? the original time for my gti (03) is 7.9 seconds (i think)?? should be running around 210-220 bhp after the stage 2 revo. i already know it makes midrange power and torque amazing, just would like to know if it'l help me take a civic type per say, at the lights??

cheers

Drivers ability has a lot to do with a 0-60 time as well.

I echo everyone else's views of not really giving a sh!t on 0-60 times, all it does is f**k your clutch up and wear down your tyres :(

With 220 in a MK4 id hazzard a guess at a 0-60 of about 6.5 seconds.

My Mk4 beat 2 CTR's (in a straight line) with ~200 bhp on the old KO3.  Haven't come accross any since my new turbo.  (I should be running 215-220 bhp, now).

I'd say 6.5 secs would be a good shout for 0-60, but the more power/torque you get, the harder it is to get the power down in 1st & 2nd.  Rolling starts & overtaking on the move is where it's at with mapped Mk4's, IMO.  ;)
