Add headers , better turbo and maybe? You also have to be crazy unless your on the track.

The only mod to the car at the time was headers ... but I tend to agree with you. Even Porsche claims the top speed is like 158 or so on that model.

Say with headers it would go 165, add in 8 mph speedometer error and 7 mph BS error .... does that sound reasonable?

Factory stock other than k27 turbo, B&B headers, GHL exhaust, Tial F40, 1 bar wastegate, MSD 6A ignition, 8" and 9" Fuch upgrade, H4 Xenon headlamps and a 930S steering wheel.
