Poor english and sentence structure. It reads like a C gradewriting assignment in high school.

With 3.31 gears, 150 is approx 4550 RPM.

Disabling the rev limiter and adding a few performance goodies (and lowering the car) could see this.

It would be pushing our little 6, butwe wouldn't be doing that EVERY day would we?

We'd LIKE to, but we wouldn't... well, some of us wouldn't.

PS: That article sounds like it was written by someone outside the USA.

By getting an SCT Tuner and removing it with the handheld device...

Besides you could only get 135mph+ by upgrading like they said; driveshaft, higher rated tires all those goodies....it also helps fazm when your in a shop testing so theres no wind resistance
