Speed question.....

We have a 2000 sedan 5-speed and have successfully altered several things on our own.....I'm just wondering how our speed compares to others.....

We are at 95mph in 3rd gear now and still aren't red-lined yet. We haven't removed the rev-limiter in 2nd yet, so that one tops out at 60 still, but 95 in 3rd??? It's definitely cool!!! I'm just wondering if anyone else has this with their mods and, if they are faster, how did they do it!!

Thanks!!! We're just kinda playing this one by ear and it's become quite a car around town. We have the only car like this one (due to odd coloring/lighting we did to it on the exterior) in Chattanooga.

Thanks for any and all help and input!!!

maybe they changed the set up on the tranies but in 3rd gear wines out about 81 or 82 before redline in mine, i also have a superchip which raises my rev limter and speed limiter. The fastest that i've ever gone was about 125mph in 4th or 5th and it took a hell of a long time to get up there. My mods are in my profile and i have an 03 sedan

fastest i hit in 3rd was about 85 with all my mods i have on the car right now...95 seems to high for the gearing of the tranny.
