fine, 148mph :cool: (not because I topped out, just because I ran out of room)
I assume you removed the limiter then because isn't it limited at 147?

Anyways, I've gone 140.

Legends don't have speed limiters... only rev limiters..

I dunno how fast I have gone, I've had the needle pinned straight down though :D

Ahh, thanks for the heads up.
You've pegged yours out at 160? Wow. That's pure insanity.
You need to come down here to Lousyana. There's a road about 30 minutes out of town with a little over 9 miles of dead straightaway with no side roads to contend with of anything. Perfect for top speed runs. A Mig could top out on that road.

143 the day I bought it. Have not been that dumb since. When people ask how fast it is I just tell them the Spedo goes to 160. :eek:

Not to call you guys liars or anything, but 150 with a type I sounds pretty high, I mean, an RX-7 twin turbo only pushes 163 or something. That car's hp/weight ratio is much better than ours. It just seems a little outrageous. However having never pushed my car past 130, I really wouldn't know... it would seem that it would take a long time to reach that speed however. Just my 2 cents....

And a 285 hp 6speed BMW 540i without it's limiter can top out at 184 mph, only 55 more hp than a Type II and it weighs 300lbs more.

At those speeds it's all gearing and aerodynamics....

When I pin my needle literally straight down, if I recall correctly, I am pulling around 5600 RPM and have no power to get anymore.... :(

Ya, it takes a bit to top out at 140 for me. Car is pretty quick, but unless I downshift (auto) and go WAY up in RPMs it can take awhile. I have pinned the speedo at 140 and felt like I was still speeding up, but I can't be too sure. It was VERY squirrely at that speed!

I basically got a stock type-1 auto w/ Weapon-R Dragon intake... Still pretty damn fast for a sedan! My 18 inch Enkeis and Pirellis are actually HEAVIER than my stock wheels were too...

BTW: Do not try this on normal roads! I was on the freeway at about 3:45 AM on my way to Portland and I hadn't seen a car go in either direction for about 20 minutes...

I've pushed the speedo passed 140, but don't know how fast I was going. A guess between 145 & 150 only because the RPM needle keeps going up so it's kinda hard to tell, plus it's a 91LS sedan.
