            It's faster? Or it "feels quicker"? Your VR6 should be under 200whp unless there has been significant work done. And your S50 should be over 200whp I'd think.

            Could be a number of factors. Weight, gearing, torque curve/power delivery, tuning, etc. My 160whp E30 M3 felt faster on the street than my 400WHP+++ c900. Guess what? It wasn't :D

              Sorry. It feels quicker for sure. The power to weight ratio for MK2/VR is perfect. The VR6 has had quite a bit of work done (Schrick cams, ported/polished head, full Techtonics exhaust, tune, etc) so I know it makes better than stock numbers. Whatever those numbers are, I'm not sure.

              The S50 has headers, exhaust and a tune, but is mostly stock otherwise. I figure it makes probably 225whp as it sits. It's a healthy motor. The E30 weighs quite a bit more than a MK2 for sure.

              I'm sure they're close, but with the way that car is set up, it definitely feels quicker. That's ok...researching an S50 supercharger kit as we speak...

                      I had a well built mk2 2.9l VR6. It was bored out, Shrick cams, head work done. I was aiming for 200whp and it put down ~180whp. I was disappointed but it was still damn fast.

                      My current build was very similar, same goal: 200whp and it put down 225. I'm guessing your E30 is a lot heavier than the gti and that's what makes it feel that way. Also which trans are you running with the vr6? The Corrado unit or Mk3 stuff
