I'd say they seem overly slow. According to my friends stopwatch (granted,
not super acurate...) I'd be pulling identicle 0-60 times and slightly faster
(10.5) 0-70 times in my 1.8 8v GTI. I would certainly think that a car with
said modifications would be pulling MUCH stronger than that off the line.
The 1980's euro Ur-Q pulled low to mid 7's off the line, something this car
should easily keep up with. Also, my 4000 starts fine, but it won't idle for
a few minutes....due to a vacumme problem in the closed loop, which solves
itself in the open loop. Perhaps this is a similar problem?
