yes we are limited to 130 but do you really need to go much past that :P

lol the question is not "do you" it should be "can our cars even get past that w/o spending tons of $$"

Ive gone 139ish in my 2.8L 30V had more but it was taking too long to get there so I slowed it down
all I had was intake, exhaust and coilovers

or by the power it makes depending on the resistance at the front of the car.

The transmission in the A4, combined with the rear end gear, has different final drive ratio's for the 1.8T and the 2.8. Either way, without a change in the final drive ratio, top speed will be a function of RPM, providing you have enough space to get there. That being said, here is a chart breaking down speed in each gear at a specific RPM...

* Chips do remove the speed limiter, and raise the rev limiter. The A4 is drag limited to the low 140s. the 1.8t 5 speed to top off around 155 if it isn't drag limited. This chart also assumes car is not drag limited in 5th top end.
