If you could tell us your incrementals (60ft., 1/8, 1/4 and trap speed), it would help to figure out why the bad time... 60ft. is very important. Every 1/10th in the 60 will lower your et 2.5 to 3 tenths..on my 14.4 run I got a 2.12 60ft. Previous best run was a 14.8 with a 2.29 60ft..both runs made same night...

There was a mid 13sec mk4 Jetta at Waterwagens last year. I was pretty impressed.

Launching at 4k rpms or 4 second 60 ft times? Either is not the way to go. If you're an experienced driver, you should have near 2 sec. 60 ft times. 4k rpms is too high for a vw launch, you'll get a lot of wheel spin. Try runnning at 2500 rpms, and feathering off quickly for the launch, it should improve your quarter mile times.

First time ever at the track (E-Town) I ran a 15.6 1/4. That was only with a Milltek cat back. I'm probably in the 14s now with everything I have done since then.
