Gone about 15 seconds above 200km/hour, my tach is in km/h, so I topped 200 and went on for another 15 or so seconds, forget what rpm in 5th I was, maybe 6000-6200

On the bottle I dont know

I was under the impression the ZC ECU ( i don't know if you were using it) had a speed governer set to 115 mph...i had a top speed of like 130 right after i changed my plugs and wires...it was a nice little run

What tires are you doing this on?

I did my top speed run on Azenis so I knew they could take the heat and speed

But I met a guy who had a 91 or whatewver Z24 cavalier and he told me he went 140 with the tires I was looking at on the car, they were old and beaten and all cracked

I told him straight to his face he was a ******* moron for even attemptin breaking 60mph with those tires with his girlfriend in the car

My stock 1990 CRX Si that I used to have topped out at 128mph at redline. My stock 1990 Civic Si that I have now has been up to 125mph and it will probably do 128mph. I do not recommend trying to see how fast your car goes unless you are by yourself and on a long straight highway with nobody else on it, This way you do not risk anyones life but yours.
