I knew it was a fake. Who in thier right minds is gonna take a pick of their HUD while trying to drive 156 mph down a two-lane road. You can tell becasue the "1" is over too far, but still looks real to the untrained eye. that pic is the one on your site (doctored of course) of you going 51 mph. Good job whoever fixed it.

Thought you had me their didn't you Bucko.

What did your 93 go up to before the Jet Chip?

My car was 128 stock. The day the chip went in, I tested the limits to 137. 149 came a week later after the chip 'settled in'. 156 should have never happened. But it will again. I have plans for next year to do it the right way

They weren't at a track. His bud, the GTP owner, already posted the 124 run.

I never tested this, but I thought mine was governed at 115?

GTPs should be around 128 just like an SSEi...

And our limiters are kinda fudgy, not a specific # at all...

My 2000 GTP was governed at 126 MPH, it was just a fluke of course that I found that out

Cheers,
