Just magazine racing here but yeah, stock for stock, the Cobalt is a touch quicker through the quarter. But by just magazine racing, I just know the Cobalt gets there quicker and know nothing about the top end abilities of that car. Judging by the engine sizes and the weight differences, I'd say that the GTI's gearing in third/fourth is a bit fatter than that of the Cobalt's meaning quicker acceleration but lower top speed. I think it's rated around 130 something. But they also said that the Cobalt only ran to 142 which is bs.

Yes, I'm at a high altitude. 4700'. And I think the one I raced was slightly modded. I was told exhaust, bov, and cai, but I didn't beleive it because they are rated similar in power to us. I think the one I raced was an 05. I've only seen 1 '06 and he was going the opposite direction as me and with the wife in the car I wasn't about to pull a u-turn. Besides, my race was from a roll, not a dig. I think may change the results a little. After all, I witnessed Video just edge out an EVO from a 5 roll.

My brother had the 20th anniversary GTI and he had about 7,000 $ under the hood... NEWAYZ I was stock and raced him and pulled from hi mhard core on the highway but from a dig he had so much torque and I would just spin so he would get me.

06 Silver SS/SC 06 VW white GTI... Was goin down the street near where i live and came across this gti rollin down thru there.. I decided to get up beside him cuz i had my step brother with him and had to show him a thing or 2.. Started in 2nd from a 35mph roll, got the jump on him by about a car and a half, stayed that way till he let off which was right when i went into 4th gear... of course if u ppl look at ur speedo's, 6300rpms ur runnin about 90 somethin to 100mph.. Dunno if it was just a bad gti driver or if the ss/sc is just faster.. 2.0 SC vs. 2.0 Turbo..
