I have an 2.8 tiptronic with cai and I raced an 3.2 tl type-s and I beat it 0-100km/h. I thought these cars were supposed to be fast. 260hp vs 190hp. However, he was starting to gain very fast and would have taken me on the 1/4 mile. Im just happy right now and had to share it with you guys.

I don't know, I raced a newer CL type S and I had him from a stop up to 60. Spoke to him at the next intersection and he said he was on it. I don't know what the difference in engines if anything at all is between a CL and a TL though...

my friend has a 3.2 cl type s. Its pretty quick. I doubt a 2.8 took it. My sisters 2005 v6 accord is damn fast too. I think the 6 speed is 1/4 in the 14's stock.

never post a story about ur Audi beating any car.. u will always just get negative feedback... lol.. if u ever win, keep it to yourself.. LOL.. =)

some people just dont understand that its not always about peak power... its really powerband and delivery that matters.. Its not impossible for an A4 to win a race, LET THE FLAMES FLY.. cuz i always defend people.. =( lol

my old car before the 1.8T was a 94 acura legend coupe, with the 230 horse type II 3.2liter v6. and it would of smoked my stock 1.8T and easily the 2.8 too. and thats a 94 so i doubt it could happen with the TL.

but hey maybe he had a blown head gasket, running on 3 cylinders, and faulty tranny........well you get the point.[headbang]

not bashing the a4 as i love my car but facts are facts

This girl I work with has a a TL Type-S. It's quick, but she has a lot of transmission problems with it. She'd had a few transmissions put in under warranty. When she gets on it it will start to speed up then start slipping. So maybe the guy has the same problem.

how do you know i like japanese 4 bangers? I mean, this is an audi forum. i don't hate the GM 3.8 V6. It's one of the most solid engines I've seen from detroit. I've seen many of them in the olds delta 88s that have gone 250k+ and had the piss ragged out of them from day one. Now when you compare the 3.8 to the honda dohc v6 you'll get a mouthfull. Just be thankful you didn't pay for the 3.8l factory supercharged putting out a meek 240bhp a la pontiac grand prix gtp.

They are fast enough to beat any basically stock non-S4 B5 and they typically trap 94-95mph and will trap near 100mph with just headers.

GM's Series II L67 and Series III motors have potential. A simple 3.4" pulley, Intake, 180 stat, and a DHP PCM will put a GTP into high 13's/low 14's for under $1,000. You could bring it down to a 3.25" pulley and headers to run low 13's. It's a corked motor from the factory.

Ok guys, the floor was a little bit wet, he had an awful start and he had a lot of wheelspin. From the take off i had him about 1.5 car lenght but he started to catch up very fast and was maybe 1/2 car till 100km. I couldn't tell if he had an real type-s because his 5 spoke mags weren't on the car, maybe just another poseur. An regular tl would make more sense. However, i had an encounter with a nissan maxima 255hp, 5-speed manual and i took him excatly the same way as the tl. I am shocked as we speak, but i am defenitely not trying to promote my car and yes the guy was pushing it. The owner of the car is one of my friends.

They are not all auto's, the 3.2 TL type S comes in a 6 speed.

i drove the 3.2 tl-s that thing is damn fast ... is nearly as fast as the newer TL .. they both are quick ... Well hes def right about the 1/4 mile part and it would rip him a new !$$%^&* ... but maybe the a4 beat it in the long run ? idk what else 2 say. They are damn quick tho even the tip i drove both TL-S and the newer TL both tip... very nice powerband. congrats on the kill.. [drive] [up] [up] [a4]

There 4th gear is a .69:1 ratio, so they have two overdrive gears in that autobox. That upshift occurs at roughly 115mph, and brings the car out of VTEC range. It isn't until 123mph when the car charges foward again in wild-cam. Even so, its still a top-end motor and prefers to be driven to its rev limiter on each upshift.

www.maxima.org to found out 2005 Maxima SL times. The quickest off the show room floor automatic 6th generation (the big boat one) is currently S/N GM2000 which ran 14.2XX@96.XXmph but most run mid-high 14's@94-95mph. A 6speed traps 2-3mph higher but runs similar 1/4mile times. Its one of those engines where its easier to launch and put the power down in an automatic.

Nothing beats VTEC especially a 2.8
I drove many type s and i know for a fact that they are not slow
i just don't understand how 14 sec car is slow in comparison to our 16 sec cars!!! [rolleyes] chipped and a better driver mid to high 14's... [race] uh yeah!!!

as far as I know the CL & the TL type-s was the same engine. my buddy works for honda and mentioned something to that effect. him and his girlfriend both have a cl type-s, i also previously owned a 98 accord coupe and they both have tranny issues. and another buddy has a 95 acura legend coupe. i was under waranty and had my tranny replaced 4 times in the accord before i got rid of it for my a4. and between both the Acura CL's they've had about 4 tranny changes themselves. Anyway those cars are still quite fast even off of the jump. plus hondas are more top end speed regardless. my accord was slow off the jump but once i was at 60 it felt way faster than my a4 but i doubt the CL would've lost. Those cars are very quick!

Per new SAE voluntary testing standards, the 2006 TL is rated at 258HP. Not to worry, perforance is the same, nothing has changed besides the rating. It will still put down the same WHP and WTQ #'s as well as the same #'s on timeslips.

if it was a 2001 and up CL type-s idk how he lost b.c those are a rocket ship... the coupe 6spd is a quick little car.. but the TL had the same engine idk if it was a 6spd or not.... i have an Acura legend and i can take a stock 1.8t... i dont get them off the line, they pull hard till about 45mph then i blew past it....

Can we please stop posting, period? Whether the driver beat the TL or not, we can confirm the following:

1) With Joe NoBody driving, the TL (non type s is a diff story) will win any day of the week. Shutup, dont bother contesting that, Audi bretheren.

2) The ground was wet, the race was from a stop (this I like) and the TL pulled back on the quattro...

Which allows us to assume the following:

Quattro for the win! [a4] [drive] [up]

(Editor's note: I am completely in love with my A4 1.8TQM, and I would vouch for it like no other. But after driving so many different vehicles in my life, it's just not a possibility.)

fast_audi
09-27-2005, 01:19 PM
Well thats the point. This year Acura/Honda and other import manufacturers overrate their hp and some vehicles lost 10-20hp. The type-s rated at 260 stock might in reality be 248 at the crank on an heavy vehicle. FWD in the rain, plus wheelspin, plus bad driver equals an loss 0-60 mph. I never said i won 1/4 mile, he would have beaten me for sure.

Audi 138
09-27-2005, 03:30 PM
The 10-12hp you guys keep on piddling about isnt much at all.. As most of us 2.8ers know you can add intake, exhaust, chip and it only adds around 20hp.. And everyone you ask will tell you it doent make much of a difference performance wise.. Thats why if we want a FAST 2.8 we supercharge it.. Anyways, I would much rather drive a new TL than my 2.8 if I had to choose.. Good luck to you and racing tho..

MR VTEC
09-28-2005, 09:04 AM
just honda's lack in torque generally
and there is nothing wrong with having a higher red line /rev limiter especially with vtec (seriously)
because when vtec is not engaged you are conserving gas but once you past the specified engagement point you are using a more aggressive lobe creating more power and the extra rpm's is available to take advantage of it.
VTEC kicks stock on my b16a kick in around 3800 - 4200 rpm and you can get programing (mugen, spoon, jet, etc...) to change engagement points and red line.
Those engine were designed to rev high so no need to hate on the JDM cars.
Also JDM's hold their resale value longer. (BMW is no slouch in holding value)

because when vtec is not engaged you are conserving gas but once you past the specified engagement point you are using a more aggressive lobe creating more power and the extra rpm's is available to take advantage of it.
VTEC kicks stock on my b16a kick in around 3800 - 4200 rpm and you can get programing (mugen, spoon, jet, etc...) to change engagement points and red line.
Those engine were designed to rev high so no need to hate on the JDM cars.
Also JDM's hold their resale value longer. (BMW is no slouch in holding value)

yup, its just a different engine strategy
lotta revs, less low end power vs lot of low end power and limited revs

The type-s rated at 260 stock might in reality be 248 at the crank on an heavy vehicle. FWD in the rain, plus wheelspin, plus bad driver equals an loss 0-60 mph. I never said i won 1/4 mile, he would have beaten me for sure.

there not fwd.
