    I had one a couple of years ago, and couldn't get it over 110. It got there really quickly (prob as quick as my 2.0 now) but it was if it was limited!!
    0-60 in 6.5 secs and 48mpg- winner!

    105, maybe 110hp from a good 1.6 16v which should tranlate to a solid 120mph.

    My DTi sits on the limiter in 5th at 122mph on the speedo, which is GPS verified as 119mph. The DTi is around the same horsepower as a good 1.6 16v.

    I've had mine doing 125mph and I can recreate quite easily as I've had it there a few times. Could never quite make it to 130. The only performance mod to my car is Veccy C and derestict standard air filter.

    My Z16XE seems to pull very nicely from 80Mph onwards and doesn't really faulter until you start hitting 110mph then you know you at the end of your power. GPS couldn't verify my speed as I was going too fast (not a good GPS tho). Speedo I'd say could be about 5mph or so out (generally) I'd say about 119Mph to be on the safe side.
