Top speed stock gti 2.0?

I searched the forum and have not come across what the stock gti is capable of. I read on line that it is around 149mph. What are your top speeds stock?

Eastern washington open roads and long streaches hopefully without state patrol airplanes.

ive got mine up to around 125 mph. i dont see any need to go faster than that considering the high rpm and the bad fuel mileage at high speed.
edit; mine is not tuned, so im not sure if a tune would change the top speed.

I've had mine (using the digital gauge) up to 132. Are you sure its not 135?

I've read this in several places including the APR website.

This is completely the opposite guys. Turbo charged cars handle elevation better than NA cars. It's compressing the air to a set level. It may hurt spooling time and will effect it some, but not that bad.

From wikipedia " General Electric engineer Sanford Alexander Moss attached a turbo to a V12 Liberty aircraft engine. The engine was tested at Pikes Peak in Colorado at 14,000 ft (4,300 m) to demonstrate that it could eliminate the power loss usually experienced in internal combustion engines as a result of reduced air pressure and density at high altitude"

While this is definitely accurate, it is only true while the turbo still has the capability to compress the air. Going to high elevation changes where you land on the compressor map, and in this specific example the turbo was probably sized specifically for elevation compensation.

With a stock tune, the IHI turbo operates with sufficient margin from surge and choke that the ECU can probably offer similar manifold pressure and airflow regardless of elevation.

Since a stage 1/2 tune runs pretty close to the surge and choke limits of the IHI turbo at sea level, increasing elevation only pushes the operating point closer to those limits, so a Stage 1 tuned car may lose a non-trivial amount of power as the ECU keeps the turbo away from the surge/choke limits. However, I do agree that it would still make more power than a 2.0 N/A car at elevation.

Damn, If I were able to drive at top speed legally I'd be able to tell you exactly how fast a K04 gti will go & I'd have video to prove it. Yes I realize the question was about stock.
