Did you buy it used? Maybe the old owner chipped it.

120mph, crikey, didn't know they could go that fast. Still running my new engine in, haven't taken it that fast yet! Not even close! I think my car leads a protected life, lol...

Cheers...... Tim

What hotfocus means is that the previous owner may have installed a Diablosport or Superchip or some other chip on the service port of your ECU/PCM.

Click on the link below to see an example of a chip install.
http://www.myzx5.com/how-to/pcm.htm

Here are two of the chip makers websites
http://www.diablosport.com

http://www.superchip.com

The only way yo tell if you got one is to remove the ECU and see if it's install
on the service port.

Actually 130 is a little un reasonable, I read in a mag I just bought, and they tested the top 5 police vehicles, and they had all there Specs on them, and I don't think i saw 130 on the list besides on the Camaro they tested... I'll look into the mag when i get home, at school now
