Lot of threads on this topic, but actually yes the coupes (and verts) are limited to 155, barring a tune. Zl1 coupes are not. The main reason is above 155 the front end begins to lift, they changed that with the zl1 coupe hence no longer speed limited.

I had a 2010 SS coupe and was devastated when I found out it was limited

Seeing this is the ZL1 area, and the topic was ZL1 Verts, My statement needed no correction about the coupes had no limiter from the factory.

Who ever is saying that only verts are limited is wrong, I have a 2012 SS coupe and I hit 155mph n got the "speed limited" to 155 mph but yes u can get a tune to remove the speed governor. Now 155mph wasn't fast enough for me so I tuned it n so far I've hit 168mph but I was running out of road so I had to start slowing down after that.Now on the ZL1 yes verts are limited and coupes are not, just adding my 2cents

WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ZL1 VERTS, AND ZL1 COUPES ONLY. You guys keep bringing up stuff about the SS, that should be done in the SS section and not here.

Relax lol and at the same time. I've had my Z coupe upto 160 stock. Here's my question, on a Z vert would the Pillars be able to hold up to that kind of stress from all the air pressure against the front glass?

From a safety point though and whether or not the top is up, you guys roll that thing at higher speeds you have no chance of walking away. Albeit rolling it at 155 I still don't know if one could walk away. Personally and in my own opinion I think it was a good call by GM to limit the vert to that.

That is where the limiter used to kick in on my bike. Installed a timing retard eliminator. Now HP is the limit.

I ran a 97 SS vert -Mods mainly was engine and suspension- back in 1999 to 170 mph (I stayed on that speed for a whole minute, don't ask me where I did this), the air pressure sounds around the front wind shield was the main reason I didn't go further, after that run I didn't have any structure damage to the top.
Which makes me think that C5 vert should have a better structural integrity than C4 vert, since it's 15 years later..
Otherwise if its the same I would say don't go over 160 mph in a vert because the sounds alone are scary enough.

I'm guessing either the flats on 95 or that section way out west on 90?
