Also to note that some would have to be very wrong with your suspension for
you to be concerned about "going fast in a straight line." The suspension
should be doing very little work in a flat straight away. I've pulled easily
130+ but not any faster as concern for the tires as mentioned in other
e-mails. but your car should (pending a salvage title.. hee hee) haul ass...
Even my square brick of a Ur-quattro will hit 130+ (running about 200HP)
I would start to look at if the engine is running correctly, enough boost,
are you towing anything? Is the hand brake stuck?
But to everyone out there, this is the best place for knowledge on our cars
and it shows...

Is your card chipped?  155 is pretty fast.  Setting aside my inadequate
driving skills, the tired suspension on my car, lack of nice straight hiways
with little traffic in my area (outside Philadelphia, PA), and inadequate
rubber (dunlop d60 a2), I doubt the engine (stock 3b)  in my car could ever
produce enough oomph to get my car to 155.  I did, however, manage to get it
up to 115.  There's a huge difference between 115 and 155.  And you said you
wanted to top out the car.  155 wasn't topped out?
If I invest several thousand dollars (upgraded suspension, new rubber, chip,
new vacuum hoses, and some driving lessons), perhaps I could approach the
numbers you posted.
