Well, because top speed is related to power, you can guess than the answer is yes.
Because the 5e gear ratio of the G60 is 2.93:1 and the ratio of the TDI is 2.56:1 that will give your peak power at higher wheel rpm (higher Km/h).
Example, if your peak power is at 4000 rpm (motor), based on 205-65-R15 tires, your speed at peak power will be around 167 km/h with G60 and 191 km/h with TDI
Take note, it's will not your top speed because higher speed can be reachable with lower power (if enough power is available). I simply say than a Corrado don't need 200 hp to maintain 170 km/h.
On the other way, if you don't have enough power, your top speed can be lower...
