    If your car is re-mapped, does the speed increase in each gear or just the time taken to get there?

    You can only go so fast in each gear, map or not......the gear ratios stay the same......

    Depends on the rev limit.

    This is true, I drove a REVO'd S3 with raised rev limiter, it could do just over 60 in 2nd, but of course, you was better shifting up, cos it really ran out of puff by then.

    Good point thats true....but unless your running a big Turbo conversion their isn't really much point, the K04 isn't great at holding the boost that high up the rev range....but i suppose it is possible any way !!

    Like JoJo said, 3rd would be the better option.......
