High 90's but wouldn't do it again.

60-70 is just fine lol

Gearing issues! .........they put a damm low 5th gear in the 1.9td!!!!even with mega bhp this will hold the 1.9td's back.......

1994 1.9td no mods that I know of. I gave it a go and in the 90's she throwing out tons of black smoke so eased back.
It still had a little left so i reckon with the pp done, 100 mph should be easy!

By hell man..that is good going......I would be happy if mine did that..and its got a bloody intercooler fitted....

mine sits at 80 and i have done high 90s about 98 i think no smoke eitherA:A:

mine had vento td in an sat 95 no worries and still had more 2 go, But only done 4500 miles b4 it went bang, if you want to go fast get a bigger engine, 19's are very week remember this started off as a 1500cc petrol, and there is a lot of weight in a t4 van, it now on its 4 motor standard 19d that sit at 70 to 80 mph, i sure people will disagree with me but thats my opinion

id say 75 is a sensible cruising speed for a 1.9 td any more for a long period is too much for them really

70 is comfortable in mine and it will run that all day

between 70 80 is just right but its nice to get there quick and sit there comfortabley and not die when it hits a hill, but if you need more power get a 2.4 or 25

have had over 100 in mine! man that would be good in a 1.9! i have a 2.5 and it has a pretty high 5th gear can you re-doo your 1.9 gear box?

10-08-08, 22:53
75 comfortable and 90 top end in mine... Best not to be a regular thing though!!
