Default Top speed per gear

What speed can all of your achieve at WOT for each gear before it shifts to the next? Just curious as in another post everyone else'* seem to shift sooner than mine, not that it'* a bad thing mine shifts later I guess.
1st gear goes up to 52 MPH
2nd goes up to 90-95
3rd hits the governor at a little over 110.

Depends when I want to shift it loL

first gear governs at 32mph

second gears governs at 60ish

third gear governs just over 100

forth gear governs at.. whenever you **** your pants in fear [old car, no speed limiter]

These are the transmission governers.. it acts kinda like rev limiter.. because it shoots the tach back, but its not fast.. maybe 2 times it'll jump back/second or so.. maybe less.

Yes, Rod, it'* all programmed into the PCM.
Do yourself a big favour and buy the new INTENSE unit.

1st @ 6000 --- 53 ..... and the old tires would spin at the shift.
2nd @ 6000 ---- 99 ..... about the end of the 1/4 mi run.
3rd @ 6000 ---- 155 ..... has been done by some members.
4th @ 6000 ---- 220 ......OK, OK, I'm dreaming on that one.

I don't remember all the shifts on my car, but I know that I either hit 4th or OD at 107 mph.
