    Back about 10 yrs ago my friend had a silver LT1 t-top M6 Z28. Full Bolt ons, Full Suspension, 410 gears. We went 170 running from the cops about 8 at night in Texas.

    No speedometer errors? Gotta love V8 cars!

    I thought I saw a test somewhere with a stock LS1 F-body that hit 163 and never hit the limiter.....could be wrong. In the same write up I thought that a Z28 topped out at 158 when it hit the speed limiter.

    Some Zs were limited at 115 i think depending on the stock tire rating
    Mine came with Z rated tires so the limiter up past 150, like 168 i think

    LS1s live for top end, the pull up top is the best part
    That last part was for insurance purposes right

    It just sounds like one of those internet stories that didnt actually happen. And if it did happen, it was a really bad move that could have gotten you, your friend, and other people killed if it had gone wrong.

    Just because it happens alot doesnt make it any less retarded. Dont the 03-04 Cobras have problems boosting all the way through 5th and 6th gears? I remember some sort of cooling issue where you can really damage internal motor parts doing it on a stockish car.

    So tell me where I'm wrong in what I said. Whoever was driving was an idiot. Sorry, I'm not the kind of person to advocate doing incredibly stupid shit. But you keep on being bitter about it if it helps!

    Most manufacturer's speedometers are notoriously optomistic, especially at high speeds. A better way to calculate at high speeds is using your gear ratios and rpm.

    how do you know you were doing 170 did you get clocked? i went 158 in the Z with the LT1 and it would NOT go any faster, no limiter, it had 28" tall tires and 4.11s in the 9" but only reason i know is because i was running my friends LS1 swapped S10 and i had TTS Datamaster logging the run due to weird sensor issues in my car. as far as i knew that night i was only up to about 145 it never hit 150 on the speedo but on the log it was 158. the speedos in these cars SUCK! along with the 400RPM off tach

    He had a recalibrated granatelli 200mph guage face and the motor spun more rpm's than stock. We did not get pulled over.
