2.4L stroker kit will give u a lot more torque.

Valve springs will only be useful with high cams.

with the right exhaust system, torque figure can be increased.....This is one option car enthusiast could go for, without touching the engine.
but dont expect to have torque figure of a 4x4 truck though.

I don't mean to be mean... but if comparable stock with stock, I don't think Airtrek stands a chance with Golf GTi.

Let me give you some reasons why Airtrek can't win.

- Overly heavy chassis. Once, someone weighed it and it was close to 1700kgs.
- Less efficient and slow gear change of INVECS II compared to Golf's twin clutch system.
- In stock, Airtrek puts out 160-170whp vs. 180-190whp of Golf's.

If your car is completely stock and wants to race with Golf, I suggest you to do the following:

1) Intake - change to K&N filter if possible, if you're still using FMIC, then swap the rubber pipes with steel piping to minimize loss of boost.
2) Ignition - ensure your plugs are in good condition
3) Exhaust - decat + less restrictive muffler
4) Fuel - fuel regulator
5) Turbo - boost controller
6) ECU - remapping dyno tune

If your engine is healthy, a good tuning can give you 220whp. Then you may stand a chance :) GOOD LUCK!

get high camshaft and evo turbos sure can beat golf gti..
Yup.. that will be stage 2. Coupe with bigger turbo and FMIC, you can achieve around 260whp.

stock airtrek parts have strong torque if increase the boost.. our stock TD04 produces high torque and very quick response. just that it is out of breath when over 5500 rpm. installing evo cam will make torque higher. i think, u just need to proceed the stage 1 mod if u just want to beat stock golf gti. is it golf gti mk5 or mk6?

Mk7 is even faster! So get to Stage 2 before you race with him. I assume this is 'drag' right? If in circuit, a lot needs to be done on the handling of Airtrek if you wanna beat GTi Mk7!
