The only factory turbo VW's were diesels. As for the twisties, not much can beat a Rabbit with no front sway bar, the rear axle squared off, and nuespeed sofsports with Bilstein adjustables. Add to that 2l 16v with t3 turbo, and an evo can barely keep up through the slalom. Trust me. I've done it. With Kumho 712's 195 45R/15 tires. However, add gravel, and I would much rather have your car. I've driven a WRX on snow, and WHAT A BLAST!!!!! Love those things.

That's an audi motor, and they can have it back. By the sounds of it the car he's looking for was an older one. The 1.8t engine wasn't available until the mk3 20 th anniversary GTI if I remember correctly.

A rabbit would kill a RS in the twisites and on a track there is nothing that handles like a 1700LB car esp with good suspension

..lol ....still would rather drive my 2.5 rs rather than a rabbit.
even if the rabbit had no sway bar, rear axle boxed ..etc .... or i could just put stiffer springs on the the rs do an engine swap and prolly still loose to the rabbit on the straight or the twisties. According to the numbers my gfs 95 integra is faster than my car , ive driven both of the cars many times and guess what ..i still like my subaru better. I bought the car because i like the way it looks and i do enjoy a nice drive on some gravel,mud road once in a while......so my point is if i wanted a car that goes fast in a straight line, i would have bought a stang, but i wanted an awd drive car, and this is the best bang for the buck, untill i can afford an sti........
