Top Speed

Does anyone know what the top speed is for the 07 v6 is. Today i buried my needle at 120 in 4th gear at only 4500 rpms. So i know i was goin faster than 120 my buddy was doin about 135 and i was right on his tail. And i still had another gear to go

Re: Top Speed

I am sure its a lot less than that. Its less than 120 most likely, maybe your governor is broken, lol...

Re: Top Speed

Yeah mine stops me at right around 115. You're governed buddy, even in 4th. Actually the gearing is so low in the 5 speeds that I dont even get out of 4th on a top speed run... no need to. Mine is getting a tune after the CAI and exhaust anyway.

Hey Rick, do you like your CAI?

Re: Top Speed

I highly doubt a stock v6 running 150mph. blown 3.8's in Super Coupes can barely accomplish that and I can attest to the SC's because I spent 3 nights in jail for 152/65 chasing an E500.

Re: Top Speed

There is no way a stock V6 will go over 120. I haven't topped out any of the new ones, but even with the governor gone, you probably won't be able to pull past about 140 without a power adder.

Re: Top Speed

figure my SC is 3.8 liters (same as the V6 Mustang) plus an Eaton M90S with a 10% underdrive and 150-160 is tough. Point is youre governed which means youre full of "poo" my friend

Re: Top Speed

i never said it would hit 150mph but that is what the govenor is set to i highly dount it will hit nearly as close to that mark being stock.

and for the record i have gone 120 exactly in my 06 V6 and have not added any power addings to it yet! so its possible to hit 120 mark but ive never gone passed that!

Re: Top Speed

youre governed at 120. Ive been 120 and thats all youre gonna get. We're not arguing with 120, we're saying good luck with 150 hahaha

Me, personally, I like to keep it slower than that. Ive made my mistakes and thankfully Im still around. If you look in my signature you'll see I have a GSR engine in a civic. That engine came from a totalled Integra... nuff said?

Re: Top Speed

i beleive your Right 1quikV6 when i hit 120 granted that i had to lay off accelerator it didnt seem as if it was gonna go any higher and plus going that speed on a highway will get you noticed real quick by Black and White so i dont need my car impounded for stupidity haha but yea i dont think it will go passed that and really why would anyone wanna especially since most do it on the highway anyways which is the most unsafe place to do so but 120 is max and anyone who said they have gone passed is most likely not telling truth!

My 02 shifts into 4th at 120, it's about like hitting a brick wall. It will pull, but not very much, I have however had the needle to the end of the speedometer, coming off a very large hill into the delta (completely flat) on a 4 lane highway.

Re: Top Speed

The governor just controls the throttle by wire so effectively ****ting the throttle input from the pedal. When it gets to 120 its just levels the throttle position and holds you there. They used to be governed by rpm in top gear but they got smart and now that we have throttle by wire they can litterally control the throttle by the ECU. And of course the only way to do that is by decrypting the ECU and deleting the governor.

I have a SCT Xcal2, and my governor is gone, but, I could hit the governor in 3rd gear.

Re: Top Speed

The auto is 117 the 5 speed manual at 120 + or - for error, I was radared at 133 with my limiter turned off by my tuner and that took some time from 120 - 133 on level road. The car just wont do any more unless heavely modded.

Re: Top Speed

its not about what the motor can do its what ford lets it do. You have a cut off at 115 unless the tires are better than they used to be (99 gt's for example that came with the 16 inch rims had a cut off around 120 or so due to the tires were not rated over that)

Re: Top Speed

120 in third would be tough considering I hit redline by 90 in third.

Re: Top Speed

The 05+ V6 is governed at 115 mph. Sorry... but you are not doing more than that without a chip.

Re: Top Speed

And the cars are governed for a reason IMO. If youre doing over 120 on a regular basis then I think you need your head examined because youre disregarding the safety of others and to be honest keep it on the track if otherwise. 120 is plenty.

Re: Top Speed

What if you hit a deer going 120mph ... you would probably be dead lol just as long as you kill yourself and no one else then I guess thats your choice.

What sucks is if I get on my car im going 100mph before I really know it... so I dont get to open her up more than first and second gear lol.

Re: Top Speed

On an especially stupid night, I have passed 150MPH and still pulling. (Measured with a GPS system). If you must do this, do it with Z rated tires. One less variable to have to worry about of many.

Re: Top Speed

I wouldnt do 150 in anything other than something designed to run that fast and obviously a car governed at 120 isnt meant to.

Now as for Spector.... Im quite sure its meant to roll like that but at 150 A LOT can go wrong. Not worth losing life over. When you've got horsepower you need to use it sparingly and wisely. Just because it can run that fast doesnt mean you need to.

I'd rather play on the strip once I can find a good affordable turbo setup for some low boost. Play safe or dont play at all...

You obviously do not know SpectorV. We make fun of him all the time because of the way he drives his car like a 95 year-old nearly-deceased woman who's smoked a blunt and a half and is paranoid that she's gonna get pulled over for doing 41 in a 55.

He is the last person on Earth that needs to be preached to about driving too fast.

I guess you missed the part where he says he doesn't "open her up more than first and second gear lol". lol.

Re: Top Speed

Hmm well Id definitely cruse with him doing 41 in a 55 just to be cruising in a blown 4.6 rather than an N/A 4.0L. Anyone who's riden in a Cobra knows that its just as sick cruising as it is blasting the doors off on an LS1.

And as for 1st and second... Well at WOT there isnt much difference... just more smoke in second haha

Re: Top Speed

ok i know you guys are all in miles but i'm stickin with my kph and I get up to 190k/h in 4th with my 06 v6 5 speed. I do this mostly on the highway close by my house. I've taken it there 3 times - once to see how fast i can go, 1 just hit the highway and it was empty and I was on my way to work wasn't really lookin at my speed untill I felt the gov kick in but I though I was still in 4th??? whats goin on here??, 1 racing a 2500 chev diesel blew the doors off him from 2nd on but he got me in 1st every time... I just floored it and sure enough found out that I can top out in 4th at 190 k/h with another gear to go, can't wait to get parts started and get to a track with no gov

How do you know how fast you have been going? I know the factory speedo doesn't read 152.

well if you have ur cluster display switched out you can get one that can read pretty much anything u want it to, the average now days is about 160mph displays i know mine in my 6 is only 120 but my 350z shows 140 and ive seen the cobra and saleen's @ 160mph so just change the c display.
