Well, since it'* a DOHC, I'm sure it will cruise up to 120ish. But I don't think it has enough HP to make it up really high. You need a real N* to get around 130 to 140.

I don't see why you want to go so fast.

120 is pretty darn fast, especially when the car won't handle at that speed.

I wouldn't wanna go over the governor in my car. The tires aren't made for it, and it sure as hell will not handle well at those high speeds.

I am not a big speeder but i just like knowing what a car can do for speed btw this intrigue smokes the **** out of my friends dodge avenger (were talking like 15-20 cars back in no time) I just feel like this car could litterally do like 135-140 up to 113 is nothing (governer kicks in)

An intrigue vs a I-4 dodge avenger. win? Yes, 20 carlengths no.

Hell my car could do over 130, but it'* limited. Limited for a reason, people don't know how cars handle at high speeds. Above 100, the danger increases drammaticaly ever 10 mph. Anything above 120 MPH should have full inspection of tires, engine, and all body pieces.
