Ive got a vectra 1.9cdti with a tuning box and proven rolling road printout of 190bhp and 280lbft of torque. I was driving home a couple of days ago and had a bit of fun with a escort rs turbo and a fiesta st expecting not much competition.
I was surprised to see that i was neck and neck with the escort but the fiesta actually started pulling slightly away (not massively i would say from 2 car lenths to about 5 over a mile). I know the fiesta st's are nippy little things but when i had my standard astra coupe turbo i beat one and thought the vectra would do the same. I know diesels feel faster with the torque but didnt expect a little fiesta to do me
I dont condone racing or anything like that but roads were quiet so just thought id have a bit of fun.
