Hello! I have a 2010 SS/LS3. Long story short- pedal to the medal. However, I was greatly disappointed. I Don't know if I was doing it wrong but my car maxed out at 125mph!!!!! I was so confused... I barely have any mods on my car either, mostly bolt-on's. Please help me find an explanation!!!

My mods:
Airraid CAI
Magnaflow catback exhaust system w/x-pipe

Are you tuned? If yes, I'd suspect there was something wrong with your tune.

If not, 2010's ARE limited to 155, sooooo.

Edit: maybe messed up speedo?

Here in Sweden they put into a chip that provides about 60 hK more! and the chip will also remove the speed limit...

Maybe your missing a couple gears in your transmission.

What gear were you in 5th & 6th are both overdrive and will slow you down.

Thinking the same thing. If you have a manual and you tried the run in 6th that's why you failed. Other than that something has to be wrong with your car.

Keep it in 4th, which should get you to about 125 then shift into 5th at redline. Never use 6th!

I've gone 134/135 mph. Took awhile to get there after I hit 130.

Seriously, what gear were you in? You should be able to hit the limiter at 153 or whatever in 4th. You're not going to get there in 6th.

OP either:

1. Was in 6th gear.
2. Had parking brake on.
3. Didn't install the Swedish chip.
4. All of the above.
