Sounds like a GREAT idea... I'm going to grab some lighter wheels first before I do.

While my dash read 100 today, my iPhone actually read 100 on the dot.. Haven't tried a portable gps yet. Apple could be wrong

US spec Golf R@6100 RPM = ~135MPH for me.

Just curious, how difficult would it be and expensive to swap out 6th gear for the above mentioned TDI 6th gear. I would so be willing to do this for less than 2k.
