    • FBO E85 Nissan GT-R vs. Iroz Stage 2 E85 Audi 8V RS3 highway pull

      This run certainly puts in perspective how potent the Audi RS3 is with bolt ons on E85 ethanol. The GT-R that goes up against the RS3 is said to be a 135 mile per hour car. That certainly qualifies as potent on the highway.


      Yes, the bolt on RS3 is able to give it a good run before the GT-R edges it up top. When you put into perspective that the RS3 is much cheaper and working with only 2.5 liters it truly reflects what a monster Audi built.

      It also certainly does not hurt the RS3 is a couple hundred pounds lighter.

        Iroz Stage 2 RS3 is only DP, IC and ECU/TCU software

        It seemed to me more like a gearing thing actually because.... They looked even in 2nd gear and then in 3rd and 4th the GTR pulled one car ahead and then in 5th the GTR wasn't pulling anymore, their positions didn't change in 5th gear until the GTR let off.

        Has anyone found out the absolute limit of the stock turbo; FBO, DP, IC, Inlet, Fuel pump, everything but Big Turbo?

        Gearing is a factor but that was clearly HP putting it ahead as the TT-RS dual clutch is significantly quicker.
