And I second the question about a stock 94SSEi being able to exceed 128.
5mph faster than your HUD pic

And I'd say it'* possible to creep to 130, maybe 131, in a stock SSEi, but 138 seems high. I mean I'm supposed to be limited at 108, but have gotten to 113 several times. Maybe he picked up an extra 5mph..? But an extra 10mph..

PCM cuts out at 128 on the HUD with a stock setup. The HUD is getting it'* signal from the VSS, and so is the PCM. Your speed-limiter shouldn't vary by more than 1mph from the HUD.

Maybe N was selected, and car was going down a paved mountain with a 138mph tail wind?

127 MPH in my 1994 SLE (governor only kicks in when it feels like it wants to) and I have a photo of the GPS showing 117MPH from another run.
In my 1999 SSEi I hit 129 MPH on the HUD and then the governor kicked in.
In the silver 1989 Lesabre I drove last winter I hit 126 MPH (GPS again).
In my 1988 Lebaron TURBO GTC Conv I hit in the ball-park of 157-159 MPH (going by rpms, gear ratio and tire size) Could have gone faster but I had a conscience thing start nagging me.
My brother has hit 128 MPH in his 1988 Olds 98 Touring Sedan (GPS verified).

So my HUD can read 113, but it'* not supposed to?

Actually, you should cut out at 108 on an SSE (non-supercharged). Unless your car was delivered from the factory with H rated tires or better.
