i've had my six a couple of months now after upgrading from an xsi 8v. drove the xsi again today and noticed that it revs up alot quicker than my gti6. the gti6 is definately quicker, but i expected it to be a bit less lethargic?

any ideas

cheers

Does the throttle cable pull through easily ? They gum up with crud on all pugs - i run mine through with 3n1 oil to loosen it up.

Has the throttle body been cleaned out recently? If not then it and all the sensors mounted on it will be full of engine oil from the breather.

Have found that they are very sensitive to spark plug and engine oil condition.

Cleaned the throttle body out over the weekend. What a difference that made! feels like a different car, although i do need a new throttle body to inlet manifold gasket though.

Cheers
