today i saw a new ferrari going down I65, i was going to try to catch up by apparently the SVT has a limiter at 95?? It was either at 90 or 95, and the RPMs stopped at 4K. Do they make a chip to eliminate this?

Were you in 6th gear, most cars won't reach top speed in top gear.

your car doesn't top out at 95. there's a thread about this called "how fast does it go". Its in the svt performance stuff.

I did read something somewhere that states that the SVT reaches top speed in 5th gear. I can try to find it and send it to you if you'd like.

I've come about as close to topping out at max speed as I'll probably ever get, in sixth gear. Be safe out there, though.

Hey, you can always get up to 7200RPM's in 6th and put in into 3rd... Gives a real big HP Jolt! [:eek:)]

I did 115 in 6th gear and was not on it all the way. Had more to go... I've heard tops of 145!!! [:p]

In the back of every issue of Road & Track (if you read it) it has the cars tested and 1/4 mile times, prices, ect and plus top speeds. I think it's supposed to be 130. (SVTF)

You bought a chip and it didn't raise the limiter?? Are you sure that you installed it right cause it should have.
