    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 2.0 turbo

    Year : 2005

    Default Remapped 2.0 Turbo vs ATR

    Just wondering what people's opinions are with regard to a remapped 2.0 Turbo vs an Accord type r.
    I was having a debate with a friend at work reference these 2 cars and he said a type r would murder it but I disagreed, yeah the accord might have a few bhp more but the torque is not as high, now this is just a question as I'm not into going out and racing just want opinions please

    The old shape? From memory it's a 2.2 with 212bhp, i think the 0-60 is a shade under 7 seconds. I'd prob side with the type r, one beat me to 70mph when i had my 3.2 with 218 bhp and 250 lb/ft

    Vehicle : Signum

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 3.2

    totally different cars with different character completely. cant compare really. i love both the surge of turbo torque and the mental scream of a vtec whipping to the redline.

    not fair to compare. i think its more fair to compare vxr against type r , because they are both design to be the flagship racing models, and i think that would only have one out come !!!

    i know its not a vectra, but i think a more even match would be - 2002 astra gsi 16v 2.0 turbo 0-60 7 seconds with a top speed of 150 and 200bhp
    2001 accord type r 2.2 16v 0-60 6.9 seconds with a top speed of 141 and 212 bhp

    Compare the bhp per tonne in the first instance. As said by many its an unfair comparison. The r type is smaller and built to sprint.. The 2.0t is not. Its a quick car but not fast.
