I have seen a 92 SSEi achieve 135 before hitting the brakes, STOCK, and it came with Z-rated tires. WIth the Hypertech chip in, it wouldn't do better than 128. I assume Hypertech thought the tires were H-rated.

I was a passenger, BTW, kinda scary

BURN!

I haven't taken my SSEi to the limit yet but if I did I think 128 would be just fine.

Yup, 128 mph......and I know it could do at least 145 without the limiter.
