ok, so, im still sticking with the whole "n/a's are not fast" but, the n/a i just picked up will do 100 mph.. once i take it to the jetty, i will really know how fast it goes. its still a slow n/a, but its not bad off the line.. the bigger exhaust should help it greatly.

its really not even torturing it.. it has some tall gears. only turns 4500 in 3rd @ 75 mph. and a little over 3800 in 4th @ 100..

my other rabbit saw 140+ a few times.. its not animal cruelty unless its hurting it! and both rabbits happily go that fast and ask for more.

I suggest modding your intake to a 3" ABS/PVC setup for sure, It used to smoke like a bugger under full throttle, now its just a slight whisp. NExt is the exhaust, and GOVERNOR MOD! Gonna make this thing a monster!

i can cruise 140 all day in my NA people say they are so slow but mine seems pretty fine. pump timing is a little advanced but that shouldn'tmake a HUGE difference

I had a 1984 Rabbit 1.6 NA that can cruise 140km/h a flat highway with roughly 80% accelerator pedal input. It probably was capable of going faster but I haven't tried. 4spd transmission and 400,000km on the engine. I think it may have had a slight IQ increase.

How do you like that intake, jseeley? Notice any difference in exhaust smoke?

Yep, cleaner exhaust (or allows me to turn up the fuel a tad more). I also put in a K&N drop in (funny they even make one for this car) at the same time. There is a bit of a louder, deeper sound from under the hood now as well... but who notices with all the clacking anyway...  :P

they dont make one FOR the diesel.

its for the mk1 and mk2 gassers..

it just happens to fit a n/a diesel as well..

same thing for the TD.. i believe you can use a digifant K&N for those..
92 Jetta GLI - Black, 1.6D w/ GT2056V turbo..
86 GTI - 4 Door, Med Twilight Gray, Tow Machine..
86 Audi Coupe GT - Tornado Red, All Stock.. WRECKED.
89 Toyota 4Runner - Dark Grey Metallic, LIFTED!

Turbo: exhaust gasses go into the turbocharger and spin it, witchcraft happens and you go faster.

Not entirely sure it isn't "for" a diesel -K&N does say it fits a lot of cars -
