BTW I as well wouldnt doubt you trashed your tranny going 145mph, my sister used to have a '99 beetle 1.8T and we had it up to 132mph at one point and let up, with some rpms still to go.

Oh great. I'd go on with my usual rant about stupid people doing stupid moronic things like that but I think I've beat it to death already and you'd never understand it anyway.

I'm glad you said this, I was re-reading the thread for the 4th time and thinking that I missed something, I can comprehend Dell's outsourced tech support better than this guy

the 2.0L sucks butt. It only has about 115hp.. the 1.9L TDI would kick a 2.0L badly.

My SVT focus, had the ABILITY to go 136 MPH on PAPER. Which means, the gears would allow the car, to go 136MPH at 7,200 RPMS in 6th gear at stock weight.

Unfortunatly, it only had 170HP, which is not enough to pull 136MPH. The wind resistance at that speed is incredible.

Now what kinda HP are you putting to the ground? That made you go 145MPH? And if your tranny blew at 145 MPH, in fifth gear, it would have locked up. Since you are here typing, that didn't happen, you'd be dead.

So, what's the truth here?

I *think* the latter of the 1.8T's had 180hp, my sister's '99 had 150hp and it felt pretty peppy I thought. The VW's arent limited to 100-120mph like a lot of domestics are, they'll actually tach out if you let em.. what were the RPM's at that high of a speed?
