do you have a performance ecu or sct tuner? if not, 125 is impossible. Or possibly your speedo is off

Nope, and no my speedometer was not off. I checked myself. Went exactly 1 mile every 60 seconds at 60MPH. It was on a slight down-grade. Believe me or not, it happened.

116 when the limiter kicked in, like most guys. but my first car was a 1989 bmw 325ic aka the bucket o ****. the ECU was chipped so the governor was gone on it, hit 140 in that thing, haha, scary as hell for an old convertible with 200K+ on the clock and bald tires. oh to be 17 again. haha

Well if all your guys limiters kicked in at 116, maybe a PO had the computer tuned or flashed. It kept climbing after 115.

About 116mph in the dub jay (before the lift) and 186mph (confirmed by the state trooper) on a ZX9R about 6 years ago. Oh, and he let me go Turned out, he rode a GSXR1000 and I had raced him like 2 weeks prior to that at the local drag strip.

bout 100 when it was stock

with the lift and 35"s and whatnot, i wont take it over 75-80 , i can cruise very comfortable at 70

no point in going faster, highest speed limit it will ever see is 75


in my old Pontiac Grand Prix ( 1991 ) the speedometer maxxed out at 130 and i had that thing twitching past the 130 mark so who knows how fast it was going

haha Matt, that speedo twitch comment reminds me, this is what happens when you top out a fieros speedo
YouTube - V8 Fiero - Speedometer Spin
in the vid he hits the limit of the speedo right as he shifts into 3rd..

EDIT: heres my jeep getting into the nether regions of 80mph after my CAI install lol i usually coast at 70 because at 75 i have a slight wobble from misbalanced tires.
