Hmmm... I er buried my stocker a few weeks after purchase - '87 speedo is, what, 170 or 175 IIRC. Figured had to try it once ya know?

It was still pulling and had 'some' meat left in the tach, I lifted. Strongly supect indicated v. actual was a bit optimistic IMO. Stil pretty farquing strong, I was impressed. It was pretty stable up there too - and got there quick.

It's funny - I have to keep answering my 5.5yr old's questions: "daddy, is the Porsche faster than your Audi?"

Then I go into the whole "quicker vs. faster" angle. Sorry, the //S8 caps out ~ 182 uncorked 8-).
