Even remapped to 220 bhp the CTR will win in a drag and a race round a circuit. So much about speed and cornering is to do with weight, this is the Honda's trump card.

Back to real world stuff, if you were in your remapped Mk4 and wanted to overtake rapidly you can just plant your foot and it goes. In the CTR you have to change gear to get the revs to 6k and then you go....very fast.

I was talking about the EP3, don't know if you were??

On a track, yes I'd agree with you - They handle very well.

BUT,

In a straight line drag............................................  No way!! 

My (202 bhp Mk4 on Jabbasport print-out, so more likely 195 bhp in reality) outdragged both my mates EP3 CTR (204 bhp) - JUST & another (anon) boggo one quite easily.  My car now, with 215-220 bhp would do it a lot easier, now, IMO. 
Current Car:- 2014 GTI PP manual, white.

So your modified turbo car beat a lightly modded n/a car and a standard n/a car. A ctr with a remap (kpro) and some breathing mods will be at 220+bhp and will be quicker than a mapped gti mk4 as ive said in other threads. My 220bhp ctr was a good 3 car lengths ahead of my mates mk4 which he said easily had 230bhp! When it came to a corner i never saw him again.

At the end of the day though the mk4 is cheaper to buy and so can be made much quicker for less than the cost of a 2nd hand standard ctr. Even the score and give the ctr some boost(i.e. supercharger) and you will be leaving behind standard sti's and evo's.

If your going to compare a car to another they should be equal, otherwise you could say a smart car is faster than every mk4 on here!

Of course it isnt, but a modified one can be.

If your goal is to be faster than another car, you might as well save the hassle and buy that car! It will be less likely to go wrong and will do those speeds all day long.
I could rev my old type r to 8600rpm all day and it wouldnt miss a beat as it was made for it, i wouldnt like to red line a highly modded car all day long unless it had had serious money spent on fortifying the internals!
