    At this rate, I'm going to get charged with Trophy Smuggling at the border on my way home.

    12 people eh? If I register it sounds like I'll be a shoe-in for fastest mk3 for the 3rd year in a row!? Wahahaha.... Maybe if I can get over my fear of the american boarder shredding my car (happened to a few people I know, complete disassembly), plus I don't have a passport.

    Maybe its time for someone else to win :hide:

    Don't fear the border. Cross at the Aldergrove crossing, much nicer people there. I've noticed they hassle me less there.

    lol - why not just ask for a trophy for nicest car owned by a guy with the screen name Enraged while you're at it?

    On a serious note, there's no easy way to tell the difference between a stock CT and an upgraded unit. The true stock people will howl if you put them up against the upgraded guys, and it quickly turns into a bitch fest. Witness the still ongoing controversy over 'stock twins' records in the Mk4 community - there's still hard feelings about that 15 years later.

    NO!! Aldergrove is fucked. Everytime I cross I get pulled over and I am a nexus card holder. Dont worry about the car being torn apart, just do act like a sketch bag. You are going to a car show youve got nothing to worry about.

    haha

    I don't really care about hp numbers if the car is fun to drive, which it is (thanks Bill!).

    If there were enough entrants, you could break up the HP by injector size, so it wouldn't matter if someone is running an upgraded CT vs a full ball bearing T4, as the hp would be determined by their particular setup and tuning.

    Then you'd have to worry about fuel, because the injector size required for, say, 500hp is very different between gasoline and E85. And how do you figure in nitrous, or water / meth injection?

    Plus fuel management. If anything, it should be highest hp ct26 with stock ecu imo.
