Exclamation v6 top speed

155 mph!!!!! According to the Motor Trend mag I was reading today, it is ELECTRONICLY LIMITED TO 155mph. If you remove the limiter........ who knows? 160? 170? Imagine what the SS would do! Well, the speedo on the SS does go up to 180.
Heres the article:http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...ive/index.html






BTW the Mustang GT's top speed is about 145

no, not at all. its just something the factories install so they dont have to put crazy speed rated expensive tires on. helps em save money. and it kinda keeps fools from lowering the population(ones that do it in traffic, not normal guys like us). wont be long before sct and all the other tuning companies crack the camaros comp

We'll all get fire-retardant jackets and call ourselves the Camaro5 Racing Team. It'll be great!

I'm in.
