Mk3 245bhp vs mk2 sharked 240

Recommended Posts

Been away from skoda and the forum for a couple of  years or so, until yesterday. Intrigued what the differences are in real world performance between say the new vrs octy with 245bhp and a remapped mk2 that would have similar. At the time, the effect of the remap was pretty big, so is the difference between the mk2 and mk3 cars just as big or is it list in additional weight or completely different torque curves? 

 

Apologies if in the wrong forum, wasn't quite sure where to ask the question.

I would imagine it's significantly different to drive then, that limited slip diff was brilliant in the cupra.

The new 245 has the Golf Performance pack. Bigger front brakes, E-Diff and I think slightly more Touque, 

Bigger ventilated back brakes & more gears

More gears? Have VAG developed a new 7 speed wet clutch DSG then?

4 in reverse? Not sure that profile or mode  settings changes anything  in reverse unless you selected sports mirrors in the options list :biggrin:

Hmmm not sure its new, I thought it was in the RS5, ment to be able to handle 600Nm

Maybe the Audi only S Tronic? (It's the DL500/501 box)

 

The Golf R / Cupra had the DQ250 box fitted, all of the current Skoda versions use the same box. From my  own and other VAG users experience, the DQ250 is fine up to 500Nm, though the torque limiter means 1-3 is not that quick, and 4-6 is where the real action is. You can remap the gearbox, but of course you risk overheating the clutch plates unless you upgrade the clamp pressure etc etc. My Cupra was measured at 520Nm and I never once had an issue with it.
