I just put on my downpipe, and did the ffcd (temporarily), EGR mod, and 12V mod for the fuel pump. My car is running an open downpipe, because I didn't have the right gasket. The car is loud as hell! I took the car on the freeway (HW 249) and topped her out at 177mph with 2 people in the car. The rpm's were bouncing off the rev limiter.

That's odd.

I thought the top speed of an manual with stock rev limiter was 205.

I hit 173 on the speedo once before BPU. I've heard of people going past 180.

It says he has an Auto in his signature.

If he doesn't have a lot of mods then he may top out at that speed.

I hit 180 on the way out to V2K1 at low boost, I wasn't wathcing the tach, just the road and the speedo, as soon as the speedo hit 180, I let off. from the sound of the engine, the revs weren't too high.

Maybe the extra weight was a factor, along with my car being an auto.

I dont think so. One extra person in the car wont affect top speed that much. I had a passenger when I hit 173.

Are you sure it was the Rev Limiter?

I think its pretty irresponsible to hit those kind of speeds with a passenger, unless they knew you were going to do it before they got in the car. you gotta have some balls to do that. And it wouldnt matter how many people you have in the car. It shouldnt chnage the gear ratios of the automatic, either your lying or you guages are messed up of something.

First of all I wasn't driving, I was letting my friend drive. We hadn't planned on topping out the car when we first punched it, but at around 160 I told him to stay on it cause we had a lot of road left with no cars cause it was 2am. I dont know u and u dont no me so please dont call me a liar if u weren't there. What exactly do u think I am lyning about? The topspeed? What does your talon top out at? The reason I said we were hitting the rev limiter is cause we were almost into the redline.

Did he engage overdrive? I doubt that you can hit redline much less the rev limiter in O/D with even just BPU... Or maybe it was Fuel cut or detonation.

Screw it, I'll do it again sometime and take a pic. I engaged the o/d myself.

Hey i didnt call you a liar, i said either its a lie, or something wasnt right. What does my talon have to do with this. For your info i have never toped it out, i would say 150mph is probably its top seeing as 141 is stock. Not bad for a 3700 dollar car. Wait, so you werent bouncing it off the rev limiter, it was just close to redline?? Weren't you scared about cops, what happens if they actually caught you going that fast, well if you saw one, you would be gone off the next exit, and it would be pretty hard for them to catch up, but would actually would happen? Impound your car, take you to jail for attempted vehicular assault or somethng weird like that.

I asked what your car toped out at, just out of curiosity. I guess it was just a misunderstanding for me to think u called me a liar. Shit if I pass a cop at 177 screw it, I'll exit and haul ass to my house. During that run, we were about 5mins from my house. I am sure if they caught me, I would be in jail, and my car would be sold in a auction.
