I would think you would own him stock. I have beat stock 325i's stock, and the 528i should make about the same power, but weigh a ton more.

naw dude, 528i's have like 200hp stock, i have 150 stock.

mabie the 325 drivers sucked, cuz i dont think you should have beat them.

I thought this was answered in the other thread.

e39's are TANKS. you should be fine considering the weight diff, 528i isn't that fast, but i've never driven a stock a4 for that matter. get a chip and you'll walk it.

The 525i isn't that fast, and weighs alot. A friend of mine just got one and I can beat it easily. Not sure about stock A4 though... im guessing it still faster.

....uh no...thats why i asked here...

the only answer i got was:

hes got 190hp....and 206 tq

youve got 150hp and 150 tq

although hes got more power, its a bigger car but i dont think its so much though that it would make it a fair race, hed have you, depending on gearing...

i asked, what would i need to take him, in the 325 post. not just if i can beat him.

read the posts fully gravy.

you read them more closely... the answer was clearly stated in the other thread when it was mentioned that the 525 weighs a ton.... you would be able to beat him if you had an 01+ with the 170hp but running 150 you wont.... in order to beat him you could get exhaust and intake... or a chip, or upgrade turbo.... there you go, thats what you would need in order to get 'er done... end of thread, thats all there is to it. it doesnt take much

my friend has and 01 528 and i have an 01 a4 stock both auto with tip and he edges me out barely but im not sure from a racing start this was just on the highway on the way home from a club one night but i know his limiter cuts him out at 130 or 135 something like that but i'm sure with the chip i'm good leave him

still its cool to be in a 4cyl and not doin to bad.

i've got 99 that's completely stock, and i've found out that my power rating cannot be measured in "horses", they have to use "SP", or squirrel power. so my 99 has 1,250 sp at the wheels.

arnt they like 1000 pounds heavyer than a a4 WITH Quattro!?

ok, you gotta remember we are both auto, so we both dont have a "launch". But he has more low end tourqe. you think with just a chip i can take him like 0-60?

Without a chip the 1.8T is a dog on top-end IMO.

if it was a 328i id say you have no chance unless chipped because ive put my 2000 328i up against a 1.8t and there was no match....but the 5 series is alot heavier...they make about 192 hp in the 2.8 from the late 90's....the 325i is alot slower even nowadays so you have a better chance with that going stock to stock...but its still a 6 cyl against a turboed 4 cyl....

approximately the same hp and you'll be "1000 lbs" lighter, take a guess.

Now if your friend had a 540i... that would be a different story, and a very unfair race lol

greengravy
01-07-2005, 01:48 PM
yea a 540 would smoke your ass in a heartbeat and a chip would only shorten the distance of how bad you got beat

stock automatic 1.8t's are SLOOW! I had a 96 12v A4 auto (172hp) and that would kill my stick 97 1.8t anyday. Now imagine a 192hp car. It may weigh 1,000 lbs more, but you won't be able to beat him cleanly without a chip.

I saw a special on Animal Planet and they said that the jack rabbit has a top speed of 45mph. The fastest humans can only run 22mph.
