As far as I know,. you should still be able to run 87.....but you'll make better use of the PCM'* gains with 92+. Removing the speed limiter pretty much means that your car will top out to the point where the engine can't overcome the aerodynamic coefficients of the wind anymore....

Your top speed will prob be aero/rpm limited around 140-150ish. If you got the HP to push that far.

You might get a few HP, nothing to write home about though. Unless u run premium and have them advance the timing. But this would be safer with a happy **** type device..

I seriously doubt he'd be able to achieve 140 due to aero drag. I've done the calculations many times myself. An L36 would have to be modded pretty well to have enough to hit that.
