Wow if these V6s can reach those speeds I can imagine the speeds my GXP will go. I know even my Aurora with 4.0 seems to want to go at tripple digit speeds but at her age I would never do it.

V6 Bonnevilles going 155....?
Kia Optimas going 139 mph....? Wow

Those are some fast speeds.

Well I know the SSEi had PCM updates to remove the limiter but wow 155 mph.....thats fast....I mean I would have expected our cars to be drag limited to like 130...anyway..I assumed a V8 powered car would have a higher top speed but I sure dont expect my GXP to beat 155 mph.

Kia optimas V6 is the surprise to me too.

topped out at 108mph again today , it is so frusterating hitting that rev limiter!!!!!!
on the bright side i was supprised to see how stable my car is at that speed probably my 225/50/r16 tires, o well i am still proud of my bonne, it only took like 10 minutes to get up to that speed, so atleast i have some acceleration......lol

It was a pretty quick car after 60, it jumped to 144 in no time.

Blinks or flashes (choose your term) off and on rapidly when it hits that limit.
