Saw a Golf on the Autotrader in the UK, claiming 225bhp, because it is both Supercharged & Turbocharged

Sounds crazy to me.....is it possible?

New Golf GT is a 1.4 TFSI, both super and turbo'd putting out 170 bhp. As for that yoke it may well be but who says it runs right at all!!

Yep its very possible! Theres a mk2 golf being built by AW Tracksport in the UK running a 1.8T out of an S3 with a supercharger aswell. 400 odd bhp apparently. I'll get pics up in a min

Cheers lads, forgot about that new Golf GT - 170bhp is unreal from a 1400cc!

I'm sure reliability would be an issue with an after-market bolt-on jobbie

Its called compund charging

There was a Micra / March sold in japan (super turbo) that was compund charged

German price is only about 3 grand cheaper than GTI so here it would still be costing over 31K I reckon. They cant have it eating into GTI sales either.

31kis a little steep for a 1.4 (even though it is big bhp)
especially when the ford ST is cheeper (discussed before i know)

will it come with the same spec options as the GTI??

One thing to Say:
VW Golf GTi = Best hot Hatch in the world

Ford Focus ST + Heap of shite made slightly better by ST but only slightly

Does anyone else think that the focus is style like the old Seat Leon?

The girlfriends brother had one of those Micras a few years ago. Very fast and very rare (in good condition!) 112bhp from a 930cc.

i agree completely with you im just saying that it is an option if you cant stump up the 35k plus for
the GTI and you want a new car imho

No thats just my opinion

I think the gt will sell like mad in ireland as it wil be cheaper to buy
, tax and insure

I think you are thinking about Philip O Rourkes old mk1 16v G60, that was not turbo charged.
