Governor in 03 GT

So Im just curious as to what the governor kicks in at because I did 130 on my way home tonight and I believe I could have still done more. Im just curious as to what its set at?

Re: Governor in 03 GT

I think it depends on the tires from the factory, say in 99 they had 16 inch rims as an option and those cut off sooner than the 17 inch ones. I think its like 145~ on a 99-04 gt with 17 inch wheels, which is about 50mph faster than anyone would go on a public road

If you are tuned at all your speed limiter is probably disabled....well, set to 200+ anyhow so pretty much disabled.

Speedo's get very inaccurate the faster you go...the only way to say you really went XXX mph is with GPS.

Re: Governor in 03 GT

Well my problem is it never felt like it ever hit a governor. It just stopped pulling. It got up to 150 and just kinda stopped pulling. It never backed down in rpms or jerked like the power was cut.

that's what mine did at 143. Granted, 5th is a terrible gear to try to gain any speed.

Re: Governor in 03 GT

Ya I hit 130 in 5th and I think it could have done more. I dont know, but it was on the interstate with no traffic. And I do have the 17 in rims. Either way it was a rush! I hate to see what my gas mileage is gonna be now though...
