    I've had a few opportunities in the SS, but always run out of road, I need to downshift further. It's always interstate pulls from 80 or so, never from a dig.

    Hit 120 the other day though, barely shut it down in time to not run into the cars ahead of me

    The other day reached a pretty good speed of close to 150 with the stock 2.73s. I am sure the speedo is off at that speed however as most cars are and bikes CERTAINLY are without a speedo healer (as much as 15%). Headers, high flow cats, cat back, SLP intake, K&N filter, smooth bellow, 10mm wires. Not a good tune though.

    When you have a big Turbo, it's a nice sound.

    Had my car for a couple of weeks, i hit maybe 110
    but on a side note a couple years back my dad did a top speed run in his 97 Z28 M6 with only a K&N filter (not intake) buried the speedo at 155 and was still accelerating! i wonder what the real top speed of these cars are

    In my current 2001 Formula I hit 125 before running into traffic. It had plenty of power to spare. Im my 1998 Trans Am I hit 110 but it was a convertible and I panicked at the vision of flipping it and getting ejected so I backed off. I had a non-LS1 1979 Trans Am 6.6 403 ci that was bored to 410ci with a bunch of performance parts. The car had 2.41 gears with 245 or 255/70r16 BF Goodrich Radial T/A white letter tires on Cragar S/S rims. They looked great! It was about 5:30 am on a Sunday morning on the long stretch on the Massachusetts turnpike coming down the mountain toward Westfield I hit 145 mph and was turning about 3900-4000 rpms. The front end starting lifing and scared the shit out of me! I pssed 3 state troopers parked in the median and they didn't even bother to pull out. The car was making about 450hp so I know I could have gone much faster.

    I have an 02 SS with bolt-on's and 3.42's and I backed off at 135 on route 80. I was still in 5th gear with room to go on the tach but not on the road since this in NJ and we have more people then dog crap. I know that gth gear is worthless unless you have the HP to use it.
    By the way, if the police are reading this post. This story never happened.

    I have a problem going fast in my car, I think its a lack of torque

    I can never do any high runs from a dig, the only place I have to go fast is a nice stretch of interstate 2 lanes, 2.5 miles, concrete walls on both sides, no shoulder. i always pull from 80 or 90, but I think I need to pull from a gear lower.

    In other words, i think im ih too high of a gear for a good top speed run. I shift into 6th at about 110 or 115, and I think maybe that maybe has my RPMs too low to produce the power needed to fight the wind resistance....i can only get to about 120
