I think it is 125ish with the governor.

I believe the speed limiter was set at 155 from the factory

Can a governor be taken off or changed?

Yes with an aftermarket tune. The two piece drive shaft is weak from 125+ so that is something to consider

It's 143 from the factory. But your going to need several miles to reach it

From my experience you start running out of steam around 125

Depends on how you describe "running out of steam". Remember what one person thinks is fast another might think is completely slow. Unless your motor has more than just bolt ons you will probably won't pull hard after 130. Also depends on gearing.

Does anybody know the top speed of a car with 4.10 gears? I know theoretically it would be lower, but wouldn't the car be able to overcome the wind resistance easier?

makes perfect sense (but i don't need miles to reach it)
because on the german autobahn i'm always really fast on 200+ kmh but around 143mph (145mph in my case) it's like i can't go any faster. so this is probably where the speed governor kicks in

I found out when the limiter kicks in, i could feel it at 238 kmh (148mph)

but it was going downwards, i'm not sure if i would have been able to reach that speed on a flat part

2005 GT coupe top speed (stock)

Well, my 08 Roush has a limiter at 142mph (speedo ends at 144) , I've gotten it to 140, before I let off. But it was pulling all the way...

I also live in Germany and drive my stock 2007 Mustang GT everyday on unrestricted portions of the Autobahn. The governor restriction does kick in at around 144-143 MPH, but more importantly, the stock car isn't really designed to travel this fast. You will notice that even in calm weather, the hood lifts up and bows at high speeds. A clear gap from the up-force is visible that shifts from side to side and creates a gap of much as 1/3 of an inch from the flush position. The front end starts to feel much lighter at over 130 MPH.
I generally cruise at 110 to 115 MPH. This is plenty fast and until I make some modifications, I'm not as nervous about eating my unpinned hood.

So how good should i expect to do at the track with a pretty stock car? Is it worth it to take it out and is it safe for the car ? Right now I have a full exhaust system with long tube headers, sway bars adjustable sway bar links, shocks and struts and springs. And ill through a tune on it before race day and possibly some 4:10 gears

By all means if you are wanting to race your mustang, who am I to say otherwise. I was simply making an observation that at 140 MPH + on the autobahn in my stock 2007 GT, 5 speed with 3.55 gears, 34k miles felt pretty unstable . I am also pretty sure that in most auto cross situations a stock mustang would need one hell of a straightaway for this to even matter. My car has good tires and a fresh alignment. Your car sounds like is most likely lowered an inch or more and has a totally different handling package. I just purchased the car, but this is my 5th Mustang. People race these things all the time and I am certain that a modified mustang set up for track racing can go faster than I probably want to go. I had never considered installing hood pins. The stationary alignment and fit of the hood seems just fine. My hood wobbles quite a bit at speed.

I plan to perform some similar modifications to what you mentioned. My car is a blast to drive and hopefully with little time, work, advice and money it will improve. As for right now, an M6 on the autobahn it is not. The fun factor for the money while driving in Germany is fantastic.

Good luck on the track.

Your top speed has very little to do with your performance in the 1/4 mile. Your gearing, tire dia, and the rpm that your can launch at and cross the finish at will be the deciding factors.

is this very bad for my mustang?

Not really, rev limiter is there to prevent damage.

okey I wanted to change the automatic transmission oil, but my garage told my it's not necessary have 47'000 miles on it.

At least i got an oil change since at least 7000miles, how often do you change your oil?

The 5r55 trans you have actually should be done fairly often. They have longevity issues.

If you have a automatic yes, if you have a manual it's a Tremec 3650

Scotty the 5r55s is a very low maintenance and stout transmission. Everybody knows that....

Lol riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiighttt....


The 5R55 should be done every 30k. They have issues with material in the internals actually coming apart and floating around in the fluid, over time this builds up. The 4R75w they replaced and the 6R80 that replaced them are both badass transmissions, for some reason the 5R is bleh.

And the servo bores wearing grooves in the casing. Mine on my v6 crapped out at 100k with being serviced at 80k when I got it and once before sometime

Yeah even with my bad knee, I would never buy anything with a 5R55 honestly... At least the 05-10 Mustangs aren't like the Lincoln LS with the pretty much all plastic 3.9L V8 and the 5R trans. Plastic parts start warping at like 30k miles and then transmission issues start happening if they aren't serviced like... every other oil change and even then.

yeah it was really floaty, the long roads in the deserts of California gives you the opportunities to get on it every once in a while lol doubt I will even get close to that again because I went with the 373 gears and it doesn't seem to pull enough on the top end anymore
