I had an 00 Lincoln LS V6 that I was able to hit the limiter at 133, and that car weighed about three hundred pounds more and had 95 less horses. I would bet with this car, and the power to weight ratio it has can do 150+. I know that the V8 LS's had 252hp and top speed with them is 149-150 due to air resistance, no limiter.

I installed my tune yesterday and wanted to make sure the limiter was removed. On the way home from work this morning I hit 132mph before I backed off. Started to get a little light in the front end and a little shaking but could have easily hit 140mph or so.

130?140?150?
For me at a dyno 4th gear 160mph 2.73 ford put a limiter in the engine some how because 5th and 6th just lowered the rpm. Thank God my drive shaft didn't snap. But this car has more to give than 160 mph.

Ive gone 150 before and was running out of road and backed off. Found out right then the brakes aren't worth a crap! Since then Ive replaced them with Hawk pads. Car sure seemed as if it was still pulling too.

17" Wheel option 118 mph

18" Wheel option 130 mph

19" Per Pack 139 Mph

From the factory.

before you go messing with Rev or Speed limiter... search out a youtube vid of a guy who bypassed his and shattered his drive shaft

I just got on this forum a few days ago and noticed a few have had driveshaft problems. Is it a certain year or transmission (auto or manual) that are having problems? Feel like Ive pushed my luck but always have in my 50 years!
