Out of interest whats the most you can expect out of a PD130/PD150 with basic tuning (i.e. remap) ???

Never had mine flat out but did have it at an indicated 135mph and still pulling when I had to back off cos a police car was ahead. t was on a motorway in Italy and I was just keeping up with the flow!! Use my horn a whole lot more since then too, Turin is mental at rush hour!

On a level 'track' I've had an indicated 140 out of my REVO'd PD150. Takes a while to get up there though, like wading through treacle after 120.

Better than any of that it will cruise for long distances at 115-120 and still average over 30mpg, impressive stuff.

And the rev counter is not even at the red line!!!!!!
My thoughts exactly, and there are double lines on some of the increments????(could be the light i suppose)[:|]

Tried looking up 130/150 rev counters to see what it was reving at but couldn't find any.

My PD150 is exactly the same.... just over 4000RPM at 145MPH although my sat nav says I'm only doing 140 so who knows. I'll see what difference the remap makes tomorrow.

I didn't think diesel engines had rev limiters? I thought they just went flat and could not speed up any more?

I've had 143 indicated. When I did a run at Bruntingthorpe I only got
to just over 130 as it was quite wet. My speedo was only 1mph out at
that speed compared with the racelogic system.

Interesting how accurate the speedos are.. Did you find the car was extremely stable even at 130+? I find the Golf much more so than my Impreza ever was...
