thats about right. 110mph is just about the max for most 3800 NA'*

Did all the supercharged cars shut down at 128? It seem like my 93 shuts down at 115. Lots of power then it seems to stop. Maybe I need to retest just to make sure.

Do the old ones like mine even have a limiter? I've only had it up to 106 or so, but it still had plenty of power to spare. I thought I heard once that the '87-'91 units were limiter free.

I had my 91 past 220kph.... I'm guessing I was probably going close to 240kph...
My friend'* car was registered to 240kph and I passed him when he was doing 220kph.

I've had the 97 just over 200kph... then the gov kicked in.
