Aaron's right on the hp/tq numbers, not 100% about the 1/4 mile times though. I know for a fact that the 84' Car and Driver tested the '85 GLI at 17.6sec/76mph. The GTI might have run a little faster due to weight, but not much. I will keep looking...

That's a MK1 GLI. 10 less HP in a lighter car. The number can't be that far off though. Think mid 17s. The '85 GTI was a popular car with the magazines, so the info is out there.
