Low center of gravity and a stiffer ride. Much more stable at high speeds.

Re: Top speed?

Somewhere around 140 (top of 4th). 2 more gears left, not enough balls.

Seriously, no.

Our 90 vert is probably the closest thing to a death trap I've ever been in. At 70-80 on the interstate it is just uncomfortable. I think I've had the speedo around 100 once or twice but never for more than just a second.

Must be a difference in handling between a 5.0 and the 2.3. I've had mine 85+ and it felt just fine

Re: Top speed?

Wow. I've got mine up to 103 one time. I've done 90-95 a few times. It has no issues with going that fast which scares the crap out of me. Like the other day when I came up on a cop doing 83. Thank-god he had someone already.

Re: Top speed?

I might have hit 80 once to pass someone... Then passed a speed trap less than a mile later. Been seeing quite a few people being pulled over in NJ lately. Last thing I need is a major speeding ticket...

155 in my bolt ons srt4. 140ish in the cobra. She had more in her but I've mellowed out a lot over the years.

When stationed in Germany I got up to 147 in my 97GT. It was stock and started to get unstable. I did 130Mph all day long but did have different gears put in so I could do so. Lost a lot of 0-60 speed but was able to cruise on the autobahn fine. Did a few other mods but gears made the most difference. Still had torque to blast almost everything going up hill. However, coming down or on the straits were a different matter and the locals would signify their displeasure at being smoked going up hill by blowing my doors off going down.
