Anyone happen to know about how high is the top speed of a 82L. I dont know what gears are in it. (car is not currently here right now) Im assuming it is the 3.73 cause thats whats been in all the other 82L ive seen so far at the yards. has the punkass digital85 speedo. but before my cousin gave me the car he topped it out. i was guessing that we were going about 130ish (ive done a lot of speeding) can anyone confirm whether im anywhere close. also will that change any with the 6m?

this dosent help you much but with 4.3:1 and a manual I've toped it out in the 125-135 mph range. The 6m may or may not change that based on the condition of your current motor and the new one.

will

Yay, somebody do mine: :)
84 auto P type w/ 4.10
I forget what transmission this is, but whatever RPM/speed calculator somebody sent me doesn't have the auto in it (thanks for the prog anyway, whoever).

i got up to 200 km/hr(120 mph) max maybe could have squeezed a bit more out. also my alignment is off creating quite a bit of drag(yuou should see the outside of my tires).

I've had mine up to 128 back when it had the 4.30 in it. It had a little more steam (it was at about 5800 rpms, I think; I wasn't watching the gauges to much at that speed), but I ran out of road and had to slow down while I could safely. That was with a stock but low mileage (rebuilt) 5M.

with the 4:30 rearend you will hit the redline at about 140 but I don't know if they will pull you that fast. I have a 6m and I'm sure it will run me faster then my worn out 5m and I had it to 125 not sure if that was top speed though.

I had my 84(before the 6m transplant and before she died) pegged past 130....once i got my 85 i got her to pull even harder...so i went out with a friend in his mustang...and we were up about 140 in my 150000 stock 5m with no upgrades...on an ohio interstate...we slowed down due to traffic, but i dont' think i could have got much more out of her.

Just out of curiosity what are the redlines for the 5M 6M and 7M? Are they the same or do the later engines rev higher. I'm just curious because with a 4.10 rear end 140mph is at 6100rpm assuming stock size tires.

5MGEs redline @ 6500rpms, dunno about the others, I figure about the same.
BTW, my old 200k miles 85 P type 5 speed ( 4.30LSD ) over-pegged 130mph a few times. Assuming the speedo was accurate I figured she still pulled another 5mph afterwards. Got her to about 6000rpms before we shut down.
The only time I've ever been able to take my Blackpra over 100mph is when I was only running on 4 cylinders.
I was running against my friends '98 Neon 5 speed and neither one of us could get over 110mph ( I figured not too bad dragging 2 bad cylinders )

A good running stock 82 with the 3.73 gears and 145hp is good for about 120 mph. That's as fast as I went in my 1982 P type pulling about 6,200 rpm in 4th gear. 1984's and up will peg the 130 mph speedo but who knows what the speedometer error factor is. Back in the day, Car and Driver measured like 121mph for an 82 or 83 long term test car and 125 mph for an 85 in one of their comparison tests (check out the media section at celicasupra.com).

I've seen 270km/h (167mph) in my Supra, and it was still pulling like a freight train! I have the gearing to do over 300, but I'm not brave (or stupid) enough to try it.

Oh, did I mention my Supra isn't quite stock? :lol:

Egads Norbie! Better get some ZR rated tires on that thing quick. And hope the windshield wipers and trim pieces don't start flying off. I guess that 2jzgte does make over 200hp after all. :lol: :lol: :lol:

That's some serious ass-haulin!

my cressida has pulled 128 with 3.91s. too bad she only ran the 1/4 mile at 17.9 @ 77 with a 5.5K neutral drop and taking the engine about 300 past the redline in 1st and to the redline in 2nd.

that A340E can take some real crap.

I'm running 3.5:1 gears, so even redlining 4th is pretty damn fast!

Funny you should mention windscreen wipers; by the time I was finished that run they had crept half way up the windscreen and were blocking my vision. I was half expecting them to snap off just like my rear sunshade did a while back! :lol:

I guess that's what happens in a car designed for 130mph! I only mention trim peices flying off since that is what happened to Damon Saul's 7MGTE powered MKI after repeated 115± mph 1/4 mile blasts (he pulled about 110-111 mph trap speeds). The window trim around the windshield / A-pillar flew off!

Way to go Norbie :lol: Keep the pedal down!
