It will only lower your top speed if you plan on going over 200mph. Never happen in a 6. it should actually raise what you can achieve by adding more torque to the wheels to fight the drag that will limit you without a governor.

Trust me, I am going to have this car the rest of my life and If I do all the mods I am planning, twin turbo, supercharger, 150-200 shot spray, and a few aero mods, with some supporting mods it will be up there.

Ok. Well like I said. 200 mph is maybe attainable to you. All I'm saying is with most cars it will actually raise that top speed since you would be drag limited and the extra torque to the wheels would assist in that. I'm looking forward to seeing a v6 hit the power level needed to do so though, good luck with your build man.

Forget about gears lowering your top speed. How often are you gonna go 200 mph? Probably never. How often are you gonna use the gears? All the time =)

It sure IS going to take a lot o' dough if you want to run a supercharger, twin turbos and a 150-200 shot all at the same time.

Therefore my bahahaha. Ain't gonna happen, but I'm always open to being proven wrong.
