The STs have a 120mph limiter, all others choke ~108mph.

I do not have one, as I currently have an xcal2 tune that removes it.

If you are going that fast, you better have a legit place to do it, and you better have tires rated to the task. No need in dying cause you have less capable tires.

Wow, I really though you were 18 or something.

Slow the F down on the roads.

I have only gone over 100 once... got the 06 SES up to around 106mph before I decided to slow it down. Had a huge gap on 476 around Allentown a few weeks back. Other than that... yea an XCal2 would get rid of that. But seriously is it worth it how often are you driving over 100mph???

If you changed your overall tire diameter with the new wheel and tire combo, that could have caused the change in top speed. An xCal can take care of that as well.

Please do this in a safe place.

Also, I like how you have stickers for mods you don't even have. Always a good thing [thumb] 5whp per?

it may be the 200 pounds of rice your pulling that is slowing you down.....[joke] probably is the wheels throwing off the speedo, or like you said...ford changed it to protect any further damage.

Brandon how is your 0-60 6.9 sec with no engine mods? I also have a 2.3 with CAI, Exhaust, Headers and I only running maybe mid 7's. But of course I do have a automatic but if a stock manual 2.3 can do 6.9 im bout to just trade my focus in for that big of a difference.
