Hey, you hit 133 mph. What is the stock rating of your tires, is it Z? Mine were, and I've passed 130, also.
The broadcast sheet says it came with Z reated tires. The fastest I have gone in the Bonneville was 225 but this time I had a passenger that was feeling really nervous so I had to let off. When should it stop?
A buddy of mine has a 2500 HD that quits at 160, with the hypertech programer we have had it to 220.

I think cars with Z rated tires might go 147. Z is rated to 149+ (whatever plus means, it'* the only rating with a plus). The best I've seen with my chip is 128, I think Hypertech assumed H-rated tires.
