My 200tqw wants more HP!
Well, I may be comparing apples to oranges, but I just drove a friends
Saab Aero with 225 bhp @5500rpm. Very nice! So my first thought is,
"I want that level of horsepower!" But cooler heads prevaled, and I
need to think this through.
Should I be using the Aero as something to compare, or rather the
S4/S6. My guess is that the quattro is heavier than the aero, and know
the S4/S6 have similar bhp to the aero. I have not driven those but the
Aero has a fast 6.2 second 0-60. That is what was so different from my
current stock 165 bhp and would say that is the area I would look to
I imagine one of our approved chip vendors can get me that type of
power, for the right price! If so, what kind of $$ would I be looking
at to go from the 165 to 225? On these wagons is going up fewer bhp's
be smarter for an improved 0-60 performance? Appreciate any feedback.
