What you're feeling is the backpressure building up...along with the stock ECU turning down boost to about 7-8 psi near redline. For most people the stock turbo pulls pretty nicely up top with proper breathing (exhaust) mods and aftermarket tuning (Cobb reflash). The OE turbo feels MUCH better after that stuff.Originally posted by swipe112
You know....I actually raced a Type S at highway speeds once going from about 80-100 mph and we were pretty dead even. Just goes to show how our turbo sucks away top end power.
