Well as seeing how I also have 2LT/RS that might be my top speed also.
It may be a tad more because I believe the 2011's had a few more ponies. I can't wait to find out mine though now that I've gotten through the breaking in period.

Congrats on finding your top speed though.

lol we have the same Speed limiter, 155
But yeah the v6 reachs 155, and can do it. Without the limiter it hits 266
I personally would not remove the limiter but if you want to, go ahead and post up a video lol

Who would have ever imagined a few years back that we can get this much HP out of a v6 stock.

The 2010 and 2011 V6 Camaros are both 312 horsepower they just had not certified the engine upon its release in 2010 and had to give an estimate, hence the 304. But it was really 312. No change in the engine between model year.

Indeed you would have to tune the engine, only v6 tuner is trifecta right now, to get past the speed limiter. The only thing is, the limiter is there because the of the tire rating. So if you are going to tune out the limiter make sure you upgrade your tires to a speed rating that can handle the 155. The limiter is there for your safety.

Is it unusual for a 2.0L Nissan sentra to top out at 135? It was my previous car and that's what I hit. Cop came by when I was doing it and I got so scared. I hit 40 like 3 seconds later and he just kept going. Scariest driving moment yet.

Tempted but wouldn't dare try on my 2lt

Hrmm....my 1LT RS hit 120 mph much much faster than the V6 in that video. I guess the mods really are helping put down a good deal more power.

I haven't even gotten to 90MPH in my SS yet! I am kind of depressed about that fact, but I am really not going to do it on the street. I need to go to the track!

Did the maker of that video start out in 2nd? The first shift is at around 40mph and I can't tell if that's into 2nd or 3rd. If it's 2nd, then he finally shifts to 5th at about 144mph. lol

LOL ice covered lake. talk about drifting!!!!! I think I would love to see someone acheieve 155 on an ice covered lake!

Montana used to have a "no speed limit posted" road but have since attached i think an 80MPH on it.

I wont lie. I have had mine up to 118 before the gov takes over. I want to run it just once at its full potential. I remember when I was even afraid to drive 90 in my civic. When i drive my maro.. well lets just say you are there before you know it.
