Not sure if it has been asked yet, let me know if it has, but what is the top goverend speed of a mustang gt? And what would it be if you took off, got a tuner or whatever?

ha i dont. just curious. i was reading another forum about how this mustang raced a 350z and won, so i assume its a GT, cause he said he won by about a car. He said he got up to 140 and his car stopped pulling.

that may be because he was in OD and the power drops off towards the very top of the RPM range.

I have had my car up to 120 and hit traffic so I had to slow down. I don't think there is any way to govern it if you have a 5 speed. Automatics may be different... but i have no idea

120 was all I needed to know my car is capable of great speed

yep. I was tryin to keep up with this one dude in an evo 8.. .(a jagoff guy I know)

I'm sure if there hadn't been traffic i ould have pegged it up at 150 or so... haha but why???

I'd rather have retartedly great off the line snap than top speed... i would rather no thave a ball joint fail, or hit a rock at 150mph

ya that would be a ****ty way to die. I never drive on the highway so the only place i can get that fast is on a divided 4 lane road with a speed limit of 55mph. i was racin my friend in a BMW 330i and we were haulin *** past everyone. it would suck to have someone pull out in front of you not knowing how fast you are really going.

I pegged my needle out in Vegas. They have nice freeways there. After it pegged I continued to watch the RPMs continue to rise. I just kept going faster. Soon after that I noticed the red and blue lights behind me get smaller and turn off.

When i raced him i got him by about 2 maybe 3 lengths each time. they are pretty quick. i think they have like 230hp or something. it was a 5 speed and the driver was pretty good. I saw in your other post you said you had like 220hp so it might be an even race depending on how good you drive.

Good luck, let me know how it turns out

HIs car is a 2001, and I read somewhere that his 330i puts out 220 horse crank and my gt puts out 215 crank stock... with mufflers and intake i may have a few crank horsepower. It will probably be even, although he has the sport automatic which i have driven many times, and it shifts like absolute butter when you floor it, and it just screams... .05 second pause... screams.... .05 second pause... etc it just goes faster and faster. I may have him off the line and mid range, but as most BMWs are he'll probably pull on top speed. It's a nice ride, handles so tight, super fast, and is silent. Yo ucan go 100+ mph and not even feel it. It has made me want a bmw so bad lol but the good ones like this aren't cheap

ya true that. they are so quiet when driving fast and the 5 speed shifts extremely smooth and handles like a dream. My dad had a 1998 528i with like 130,000miles on it and it drove like new. When he sold it, he sold it for $7,000. so you can find one, but with a lot of miles for cheap. They just dont have enough torque for me though. Do the 01's and 04's have the same specs?
