i know this is possible with the pzev. mines brand new so i wont try it for a while, if ever, but on a test drive months ago i did. i really wound it out i admit but i did see 70 in 2nd. this was when the pzev just came out and i had to see if i wanted one. i just got mine yesterday because i wanted to get the best deal, so i waited till they were desperate to dump the 03's. my trade in allowance on my 02 with no a/c actually got better over the span of 6 months! btw after i drove the pzev that first time, i said to myself, well i never really pounded my car like that, let me see what mine will do driving it the same way. i wound the hell out of it in to 2nd gear, and no bs, i was looking at 45 mph, not 70! i knew then i was making the move someday.
