Your car is probably governed at 105 mph. Or somwhere around that point anyway

My 96 SE will run about 107 mph then the govenor kicks in. An this will mostly be about the top speed because I have did a lot of searching and know body makes a perfomance chip for the 96 models. This was a transsision year for ECM'* and transmission so there is not chips around.

Limiter is supposed to be 108, it is a little different in every car and varies between 106 & 110mph. On a SSEi it is 128.

Did you back off, or did you hit a limit? You should have been able to do 128.

I thought it was 108 in 3rd, and in 4th/OD it was 128... Right?
