would like to see someone pull 161mph out of a 3.73 mk2, that'd be nice...
so far all I've heard was topping out at 125-135 in any particular mk2...
mathmaticly it should be possible

whew, I've pinned speedo @ 130 @ about 6000rpms w/ 4.30 gears which appears to be accurate comparing to the chart... I would like to see someone w/ a stock n/a mk2 "officially" top their car out @ redline and see what mph that would be...just can't figure out a way to get a speed check unless you have a cop friend who'll clock you, heh
or maybe an aftermarket speedo that does over 130? I dunno
I think Norbie has said he's done 160mph but that's definitly NOT stock...
all mag articles I read has the mk2 topped at 130mph, so is the car not supposed to pick up even a little more speed if it still has a few more rpms to go?

well, i topped my speedo out sat on the way to daves house. this late 90's firebird wanted to play. so i downshifted to 3rd and nailed it and left him easily. the second time was quite a bit later. i didnt notice him get on it, and when i finally saw him he was passing me. i down shifted to 3rd again, then shifted to 4th while next to him and past him then shifted to 5th and was still pulling a little,not a whole lot. looked at the speedo and it was pegged. i was ~5500rpm's. i let off the gas and started braking. he didnt slow down, just kept on going. guess he didnt want a round 3. i know the speedo gears cant be right for the 4.30 gear, also i have 235/60/14's on it rigt now and am running an r154 so have no idea how fast i was going, just know it didnt take very long to get there.

You'll never get anywhere near 6500 RPM in top gear with a stock (or near stock) 5M.
It just doesn't have enough power.I'm too lazy to type long replies.

ive topped out my 120mph speedo a few times, with the only mods 245/50 bfgs, and a 2.25 cat free exhaust.- the Bentley Continental GT...at 1600 rpm it makes more torque than an entire production run of hondas

- Ah VTEC. All the lag, none of the turbo. It's like waiting for bad sex
