Talking Just in case

You was wondering, a 2SS/RS with L99 (A6 trans) top speed limit is 131 mph :P Me and my wife was curious on our drive down to Dallas today. I can't wait to get a dyno and bump that up some among other things

I haven't heard that. So your saying your L99 wouldn't go any faster than
131 mph (hit fuel cut off/electronic speed limiter)?
If my L99 wasn't already tuned, I'd go out and test this right now.

Your trying to tell us the L99 A6 SS Camaro has a lower speed limit than the V6 Camaro?

A good question would be what's the fastest you've gone in your stock
L99 A6?

I have a very hard time believing GM would limit the A6 SS to 131mph.

No way. If you hit a limiter at that speed then something is wrong or you misread or something. I had to do it once and I hit 140 mph. Closer to 142. Flame away if you want but I had 'help' on the roadside. I-10 between Exit 10 and the Mississippi line. 2 am and no traffic. Blocked on both sides.

Still stupid, sure. Just had to do it once.

I hit 120 and didn't even know it the other day. Is the speed really governed?

From what I've read all the cars with 20''wheels are electronically speed limited to 155mph.

So do I get 156 mph with the 21s?

Isn't the top end limits governed by the speed rating of the tires? I believe mine came with Z rated Pirellie's.

As far as I know, all the SS's come with the same tires.
