i have a 2000 auto and it was gov'd at 120 mph, but since i got it reprogrammed i've had it up to about 165-170 mph but the aero dynamics get kinda scary at such high speeds...especially if you have that hood scoop, i let off of the gas cus i was afraid the hood was gonna pop up or the scoop rip off

Some guy a few miles away from bought a 99-04 mustang GT. He and his buddies were all out cruising up and down the shistiest roads in Tulsa OK. He blew one tire out so he put the donut on. He did a huge burnout and got going 140 (est by police) and crashed. Both DEAD. Think about that next time.

By the way. I drove a c6 and got it going 140 like childs play. i was using the paddle shifter mode. never got the rpm's over 4 grand.

Someone just posted this, 139mph, stock gears. The engine is not governed, it just runs out of steam at 139.

yup i had two friends that just died about a week ago because of playing around at high speeds. one rearended the other and both cars spun at about 120.

and yea those c6's are very stable at high speed. they were kinda designed to go that fast unlike the mustang where it gets really unstable

139 in stock gears and runing out of steam? something was wrong with his car... on my video posted before I layed the needle on 150 with 4.10's

maybe his OD was off... when my OD is off I can't get past 130... it like hits 130 and then goes down to 125 and tried to go past 130 again

You're full of it. Unless you have a highly modified engine and a 6 speed tranny, you did not, nor will you ever hit 160 in a 2000 mustang gt. If you have enough road they will top out between 145 and 150. Period.

Wanna say I've read somewhere that the factory limiter is set at 145. Like mentioned above, it should be able to bury the needle to 150 if you give it enough space. Fastest I've seen was 135-140, it's a bit of a slow climb after 125-130.

edit: ****, didn't realize this thread was older than old. hate when that happens lol.

The tires can be an indicator too. Some cars had tires with a lower speed rating so keep that in mind, should anyone decide to do amateur fast n furious.
