I FINALLY got to open up my car, it a 96 GTI 2.0L with the 5 speed transaxle and the she tops out at 115mph. #$%#@$#$&!!! I need to get a differetn head with dual springs so I can use the other 1200rpms my motor is capable of. but at 5000 rpm 115 seems to be a lil low.

Im off to go price a better head.

Your car probably has a speed limiter built into the computer. Depending on speed rating of original tires. 115 mph is a popular speed for limiters to cut in.

Normally I'm all for speed, but this is going to end badly.

I had a square back that would shoot 4 ft flames out of the stinger due to a mis adjusted valve. I would scare the crap out of people behind me. That was until a cop saw it and yelled to me to get it fixed or he would impound it.

And back to the topic......
i understand wantting to go faster but it what situation would you need to go faster than 115.......

The actual speed programed in depends on the speed rating ofthe tires.

I dont really have a need to go faster than 115 im content at 85~90 but I have an older borther who swears up and down he's a better driver than me, hes got about 3~4 crashes under him already in the past 2 years, and he wants to race me. I am just tryin to get my car to perform to the stock tach, which redlines at 6200, so this spring when he will probably want to race me I will leave him in the dust and pop his little bubble of where anything goes in racing(hes the only person I'm afraid of in a car because to him hitting the other car on purpose is acceptable).

ANd i got the "Rage mobilhell" to eloy from marana that is more than 20 miles.
