40 more hp and 51 more ft-lbs of torque, but when you break it down they are not that far off from each other. the initial numbers are misleading. according to motortrend speed3 0-60: 5.8ish GTI 0-60: 5.8ish
the speed 3's aren't that great to 60 because they have huge tourque steer and tons of wheel hop and spin under boost. the real impressive difference would be 0-100-0. i bet the speed would really embaress the gti.
