Speeds are based on way too many factors to give you a good answer on that. Fuel, air temperature, tire size, tire pressure, vehicle weight, road conditions, engine modifications, etc. all play apart.

To get the maximum performance and top speed available, while keeping your engine from throwing internal parts everywhere, you will need more than having just the limiter reset.

LOL that is true... and i was just joking... but it was kinda funny hehe

Id imagine in all honesty that given the gearing, some mods, it would be around 140mph

I havent seen too many cars other than sports cars made to go faster than that go above that with the limiter removed.

for instance my 01 miata, with the limiter removed would only push to 134 because the 167hp 4banger wouldnt push 6th gear passed that, there was still another 600 rpms before rev limiter but the car wouldnt do it. the 220hp in the bonniville might but only being a 4spd, mine goes to 120 (i backed off due to mad girlfriend) and it has enough rpms left to hit around 140 IF the motor would push it to that speed... its all in the factors

ok so i'm thinking about getting some things done to the car to make it a bit quicker. supercharging it , intake and exhaust. not to much but enough to keep from getting bullied by 6 cyl. honda accords and nissan altimas.

I'm in Enfield CT, got the programming software and all that'* needed to do the job.

You are 4 hours away. There'* also a couple vendors like Intense and ZZP that do sell off the shelf canned tune pcm'*.

As for your top speed w/o limiter...it won't be much past 115-120mph. You'd find the car has more rpm to go..but not enough power to get there. I once pushed a 95 with the same motor and long legged gearing to 113, couldn't get past that..and no limiter kicked in.
