        I used to own a GSi mk 4 and to be fair on the road both cars being standard there won't be a lot in it, the VXR is faster but the GSi is a very capable/underestimated car.

            i think the gsi's are 190 brake but the vxr is 240.

            i know a couple of lads with gsi's and coupe turbos and they arnt veryquick at all. a good mate of mine has just spent a fortune on his at courts and it still only made 250 brake. they are a lot harder to tune than the vxr too. smae engine block but the internals, management and turbo are totally different.
