hi just got my 2.4 lwb factory hitop on the road and give it a maiden voyage to yorkshire and back and i was realy suprised how fast it go for a none turbo was expecting maybe 75 ish (officer) but oh no 90 plus i could not belive it not to bad on fuel either about 25 to the gallon ,obviously at 70 ish , did think the gearbox was noisy in 2nd n 4th till i reilised it was the gear leaver boot coming open every time i changed gear,it just needed clipping down at the front .:D

i have olso a t25 crew cab with a 1.9td in it and that is flat out at 70 down hill with a large wardrobe straped to it with the wind behind me ,so thats good , are you sure its not a tdi

my ex AA when in working livery and kit would do an indicated 110 down a hill!!!

now it has a hightop its built for comfort not speed..

30-01-09, 21:20
When I had a 1.9td it would do about 90... It was reasonably quick but when loaded it was slugish...

I used a 2.4 lwb for a couple of weeks and it was no faster than the 1.9.. But the 2.4 drank diesel by comparison..

I now have an 03 2.5tdi and it will do 115 easilly.. And, if driven sensably at a steady 60 will return about 47 mpg on a run.. I am well impressed with it..

Project power = Intercooler increased fuel and boost hence better performance loads on it but you will need to be a full member to view the threads.

Best tenner you will spend on your van bud!

I'm calling BULLSH*T on this one! LOL:
115mph is well into the redline and you most certainly don't get 47mpg at 60mph.

I'd check your figures and also post up a picture of your 'easy' 115mph to prove it!

The 2.5tdi gearboxes are pretty much the same so top spead is all governed by the gearing i.e at 70mph it will be doing 3,200revs etc and there is no deviation!

Now the way you get there is a different story..... Project Power baby, and I aint on about any of this copycat title 1.9tdi Project Power rubbish LOL: . The title Project Power was created solely for the 2.5tdi and is now a set method/proceedure of increasing the power of the 2.5tdi AJT/ACV engines. T: any other title relating to other engines eg 1.9 are simply wannabes that can't be bothered to come up with there own title threads. It would be like me creating a plastics interior and calling it styleline, when everyone knows that there is only one styleline manufacture! T:

Redline at 85 - someone needs to change into 5th gear I think.

Changing wheels and tyres can in fact change the overall gearing somewhat.

But for those that hail the 'Project Power' concept - fine!
It is only a matter of fitting .216 injector nozzles and having a re-map.
Unfortunatly several that have tried have only managed 130 odd HP.

Consistant terbo boost preasure, a mechanicly sound engine, injection timing and a re-map - and keeping standard injector nozzles will yeald a decent power increase and give very good fuel consumption when driven with care.

I write the above for information only - I wouldnt advocate speeding on public roads !

After stupidley misreading this i set about finding myself a nice flat, quiet stretch of national speed limit road to test out how long it would take me to reach these speeds. Ive got a 1.8 petrol running a diesel gearbox with GTI (k-jet) injection fitted so would be intereted to see the results.
30 took 6s
40 took 10s
50 took 14s
60 took 19s
and 70 took 26s.
I was happy with results as its still only a 1.8. The acceleration pretty much becomes non existent after that, and will finally reach 95mph, just. although this i have only done once, my ears couldn't take doing it again. And the fuel cost seems to grow heaviley at that kinda speed.

my van has it's own subspace shielding and anti-matter reactor powered wormhole generator (vw factory option). I can achieve a top speed of about 9 pcs / sec.

trouble is, at that speed, the MPG is rubbish. and what with the price of diesel, I never really take it above 80.

If I wasn't careful, I could actually reverse / slow down the earths rotation, which would mean a longer working day. bad news for all concerned.

My 2003 Caravelle (88BHP 2.5TDI) has indicated on the speedo 108MPH but that was also with a full load (all eight passengers and their luggage) so it took a while to get there.

Would like install an Intercooler and bigger injectors, maybe even a remap and then see what she can do.

I installed a performance box but not sure if it has done any good. I worked it out (did a run to Bristol and back) and amazingly got about 45MPG. My Passat gives me 60MPG (motorways)

Mine is a 2.4 lwb, I get comfortably 80mph at a push 95mph, tail wind 100mph. Uphill it dies to around 70mph.

I have driven a german 2.5td, dont know what year, but that had no problems towing a canoe trailer at 160KPH (100mph), and it did it for seven hours solid.

Now before i get any speeding comments, I live in Germany, the land of the autobahn!!

Morning All

So what’s going on here then, first read, I'm thinking mustn't have people bragging they are doing 150mph on the queens highway, but 79mph - Oh come on, if anyone has been on the M25, if you are doing 70, you will be treated like a mobile chicane. I know this, cos its me who is usually that annoying old duffer in the slow land towing something :D

However, I have been a biker for the last 25years and ride something that is "capable" of hitting 79mph in first gear ... but this subject is simple - if you speed, your going to get nicked (eventually) or more to the subject in hand have a crash - law of averages and all that.

If someone wants to tell everyone about it, its their look out - just bear in mind also the number of people who get nicked off you tube for posting their speeding video's ...

Jimbo

So-Kal
16-03-09, 09:06
OK Jim - seeing as you put the links up (and for the benefit odf those that think I was picking on poor Jim) - first link is him saying he's driven 125 on the speedo (113 real on the gps).

That's outrageous - just like it's outrageous for all the others that have published their 'fastest' speeds.

And maybe 79 'isn't' viewed as being serious by many of you - but that's basically taking the full 10% and then adding a couple of MPH thinking that you're being clever.

All well and good on the motorway when everyone is going at the same speed, but I bet in reality that '79' is actually more like 80-85...... or do you all religiously stick at your '10% + 2mph' made up limit??

But then we get down to the speeds where built up areas are involved - and he quotes 35 in a 30.

But seeing as though we're pushing the boundaries to the limit, I wonder how often that pushes 40??

An SP30 and 4 points?? Nope - never had one of those - because I don't feel the need to drive dangerously. I can drive quickly, but that isn't the same as driving fast.

I can drive in excess of the speed limit in my job - but even then, I rarely go too much faster, because the roads are full of muppets who actually think they can drive, when the reality is their 'skills' are pretty appalling.

And I get to pick up the results of that muppetry on a regular basis.....

And the irony (in case you've missed it) and the reason I highlighted Bananavan's posts is because not 48 hours ago, he was making a big song and dance over non-crash tested seats - yet here we have numerous examples of what the MAJOR cause of those 'crashes' actually is.........

I seriously have no wish to make this into a personal argument situation - but I don't 'do' double standards - and I certainly won't be swayed into agreeing that breaking the speed limit is somehow 'acceptable' - especially when you're massively in excess of it on a high speed road, or just a few MPH over it when the speed restrictions are lower.

It's 30 mph for a reason guys - that reason being there are most likely people about.

And people (especially those small people that tend to dart across the road without warning) Vs 2 ton vans is a complete no contest.....

I sincerely hope those of you that DO speed get caught by the plod and banned LONG before you ever have to face up to the reality of hitting one of those 'people' - as having to catch public transport for a year or so is going to be far easier to live with.........

On a personal note I was only doing 30 mph on my motorbike when I got fubared! 30 mph was enought to put me in a coma fer 3 weeks and bust me up a bit.Lost use of right arm etc. Not always the speed.

The slower I go the more you can admire my van muahahahahaLOL: But yeh ton plus is a bit mental

There's no subsitute for GeeGee's, ran out of bottle before it topped out, 130+ was scary enough
220bhp, V6 Petrol!!

My diesel 2.5 is half a second quicker than a VR6 T4 down the strip! It even matched a VR6 Golf over 60ft (2.5 secs) Rasp: See you at Big Bang and I'll show you...

V6 is a different beast all together, 204bhp as standard.

My 1.9td tops out at 80.

I like it that way. It keeps my licence and a reasonable amount of cash in my pocket not the pumps.

I'm calling BULLSH*T on this one! LOL:
115mph is well into the redline and you most certainly don't get 47mpg at 60mph.

I'd check your figures and also post up a picture of your 'easy' 115mph to prove it!

The 2.5tdi gearboxes are pretty much the same so top spead is all governed by the gearing i.e at 70mph it will be doing 3,200revs etc and there is no deviation!

Now the way you get there is a different story..... Project Power baby, and I aint on about any of this copycat title 1.9tdi Project Power rubbish LOL: . The title Project Power was created solely for the 2.5tdi and is now a set method/proceedure of increasing the power of the 2.5tdi AJT/ACV engines. T: any other title relating to other engines eg 1.9 are simply wannabes that can't be bothered to come up with there own title threads. It would be like me creating a plastics interior and calling it styleline, when everyone knows that there is only one styleline manufacture! T:

My 2.5TDi 102 westy at 70mph is doing about 2750rpm.

i agree and disagree with everyone here regularly driving around way in excess of the limit is crazy especially in built up areas but very few people havn't hit the motorway at an obscure time to "see what she'll do" and i know this may not be wise but realisticly a sober person on the open highway when theres no traffic going fast is unlikely to do any damage.
there hopefully if i've disagreed with you i've then agreed enough to make up for it:D

p.s 2.0 petrol top speed.... not a lot.

My 2.5TDi 102 westy at 70mph is doing about 2750rpm.

at 80 on the GPS mine is doing a needle width above 3000rpm. So not sure about them all being the same eh ?

I must say that, I have maxed out every vehicle I have ever owned, just to see what she will do rightly or wrongly. I sat at 135 mph in my Peugeot 206 GTi on an Autobahn in Germany after a lap of 'The Ring'. Nowdays I drive at an indicated 70-75 mph on the way to Santa Pod each week in my T4 and do 30 mph round town with cars up my chuff the whole time. Then whoop them off the lights straight up to 30mph again just to pee them off. H:

If anyone wants a real race then lets see you put your money where your mouth is, in a controlled and safe environment at Santa Pod next month during the Big Bang weekend.

Whilst I see your point mate - if people were on here talking about getting drunk and then jumping in their vans and driving around, there'd be an outcry (and rightly so) - but there's more people who speed than drink drive, because the latter has been demonised more.....

Anyway - that'll be all from me. :)

17-03-09, 08:29
Phew,

Took a bit of catching up on this one

What doe's my van do ? whatever it's allowed to, dependant upon the speed limit's imposed buy our wonderous and far thinking government.

Do I speed in my van ? no, Do I want to speed in my van ? no, Do I want to make gob's of horsepower and bench race all day about how fast my van goes and who I can monster in the outside lane of the M4/5/6/25/ ( delete as apppropriate ) Laugh I didn't think my pant's would dry.

For me Van's are all about enjoying the Journey and chilling, whilst your doing it.

In fact, I probably drive slower than most on here as to me that's how I feel my van should be used and not as some would have you believe. because It's impractical or dangerous.

I just love to potter along in my nicely low, flake painted, pinstriped, TUV'd crash tested, load rated custom T4 and watch the world go by. ( no double standard there I think ? )

In fact the greatest irony is that in this months Volksworld, there's a nice little write up on Ricky James forthcoming TORQ club/Big Bang intro and the piece is fronted with a picture of my van, along with the good Bacon Meister himself,

Now I Can't speak for Dan, but I don't think my van will be heading for the strip anytime soon. Oh unless it's towing a proper race car of course

Cheers Billet

But you'll kick all of our sH:

I don't think so, my van has roughly 140 BHP, there are people on here with 165 BHP!! I know it's not about the power it's how you drive it but I don't think leaning froward in the cab will make up the difference. H:

I have only ever seen two other T4's run down the strip in 3 years or more which is why I am encouraging participation at Pod. There are shed loads of T1, 2 and 3's that enjoy themselves 'aving a go. I have organised a category change for the T4 and T5's so we are running in the same one as the T3's as opposed to the water cooled category with VR6 Golfs and the like.

Any forum member will be entitled to 25% off any photos they purchase from me on the day of their T4 and T5. Any T4 owner that beats my personal best 18.46 secs will receive a free CD of all the photos of their T4 taken that day! My personal best timing slip will be on display in our cabin with details of the offer.

I hope to see some of you there.

Once did 174mph through the local park in my van but that was after a bottle of whiskey and a large bag of trimethoxyphenethylamine and as you will appreciate i obviously found it difficult to see the speedometer (especially after vomiting) so can not verify this,
but i would say defo 120mph at the least.I:

when i asked this question i only expecteing a hand full of people saying 80 -90 max and thats it ,but after reading through it all i have noticed that some people are appolled by it, i did not mean to offend any body or up set any body ,and also apreciate every body has there own view on speeding but come on every body has done some silly things whilst driving , how many people still use mobiles or dont were seat belts or drive with no insurance, mot , bold tyres the list goes on and on , if you ony do 70 on the motorway you are passed buy nearly every car . in my opinion the speed limits sould be like france 110 klm(68.35083 )wet 130klm (80.77825)dry and lets face it if you can do any speed over 70 on the motoway its only for about 10 seconds or about a 1/4 mile .

19-03-09, 21:47
I must agree on a weather related speed limit, 70+mph on a busy motorway in torrential rain is more dangerous than belting along a quiet motorway on a dry day with good visibility at 80-90mph.

vwaddict
19-03-09, 22:44
speed limits in this country were plucked out the air 40 years ago when there were no seatbelts ,no airbags ,no abs ,and poor driving skills if you had driven a tractor for a few weeks you got a licence .the only reason theres more accidents now is because there are more cars on the road so the ratio of accidents increase .

i managed to get up to 180 km/h on my 2001 t4 caravelle 150 bhp

What is she running at?

I used to have a '96 VR6 Golf which my son and I played with a little... She would love using tyres like they were going out of fashion (ended up cheaper me buying new alloys most of the time) and would see 155-160 easily.

Probably had more but as you get older you begin to realise it gets a little crazy at those speeds... Never did a 1/4 mile though :(

If I said I accelerated from 65mph in 5th gear and timed from 70mph to 80mph, then slowed down and 70-80 took just four seconds does this sound fast?

If I said I repeated it in my Peugeot 206 GTi, 2.0 16v Twin Cam with no passengers and 1/2 tank of fuel and it took 7 seconds, does 4 seconds in my T4 sound fast then?
