hey guys
i have a pd 115 and today on the way home my car topped out at 130mph
what does yours top out at?
my car is revo chipped with pd130 n75 valve new egr and a bmc airbox.
im also getting problems with the car going into limp mode but only when im blasting the car for a while at about 120mph.
i have replaced the vacum hoses the n75 valve and the egr valve.
i think the turbo needs a service or replacing/upgrading
anything else i can do?
also does anyone have the allard inlet manifold?

Don't know! Never tried. Might get it on the autobahn or airstrip at some point. But a reakon its around 150. More with a good backwind! [;)]

How did you get 130mph as im 99% sure that the 115pd golf has gear ratios up to 120 mph and all a chip would do would make the acceleration faster... not the top speed higher.. so id be happy with your 130mph [:D]

I clocked 120 in my 1.6 16V on my private airfield when it was totally stock, now I've spent tons of cash on mods I haven't dared push past 100.

The quoted top speed for the 115 is around 125mph standard.

My tweeked 1.8t (with revo, cotton air-filter, samco tip, forge sidemount i/c) did a GPS verified 141 on the autobahn in Germany this year - it took quite a while to get there from 130+. I think there was more left (as it wasn't near the redline), but it was enough for me!

From your post, you're saying it is slower after your mods? What induction kit are you using? I think there a few variables that could affect max mph (tyre pressure, road surface), but could there have been a headwind?

I've had a shade over 120 on the clock in my stock PD130, climbs slowly from about 110 upwards, takes maybe a minute to reach 120 from there!

Oh yeah, that was on my private airfield officer [;)]

Allowing for approx 10% speedo error , this will equate to probably approx to 140mph.

I have been up to 124mph on the GPS in my Toledo. The book top speed for standard is 142mph. I would imagine it would top 150mph with my mods and 240 odd bhp. I have had the bike to 160+mph on the clock.

My speedo overreads by 2 mph according to gps upto around 140. after that it gets more accurate due to tyre growth. PVW clocked me at 146 which was near enough what the speedo said that day.

Also published gearing for my gearbox is 23.9mph/1000rpm in top, so 6400 would be 6.4x23.9=152.96mph. No 10% speedo error here.
