    Could it be my tune?..

    Okay so when I decide to really open her up, i cant! She gets stuck at about 130mph and the rpm's stay at about 3k in sixth gear... Im practically putting my foor through the fire wall but it doesnt go more. WTF! Could it be the "tune" this jerkoff did?

    Sounds like the top speed limiter was left intact in the tune.

    does the engine cut off/on at that mph? for a manual car, i haven't heard of them having a limiter at 130 mph and 6th gear isn't a good one to try for top speed.

    They're limited at 130mph? Could this guy screw me and set it to limit at 130mph?

    I know the speed limiters were set according to the tires that came on the car from the factory. H rated tires are 130 mph limited but I'm not sure if H rated tires came on the f-bodies. I know T (118mph) did. I agree with others too that 6th is probably too much gear for a stock car to pull very far. Should try 5th which will go way over 130. Actually, unless you're on a track you shouldn't be going that fast anyhow. I might be on the same road with my kids in the car.

    I have z rated tires and maybe i shouldve mentioned i have 4.10's too when i go to the track im getting to 105 in the top of 4th... Maybe i was in 5th gear? Fuuuuuuuuck im confused now

    And i do apologize for going that fast on the highway but i was alone and the highway is fairly new and in great condition so i had to do it
