police cars are only factory tuned. if you can do better than 180k they can't catch you, so they don't even try.

I love that Movie! wish my car could do some of those drifts.
I heard they have stuff now that can tag a car so they don't even have to chase the car, all you gotta do is tag something metal, like the license plate, and eventually, you'll get caught.

Speed governor on a Crown Vic is ~127 according to my buddy that got one at auction. Not sure that they'd go too much faster than that, it's the 2v 4.6L going through an automatic, and the Police Interceptor package adds at LEAST 500 lbs to an already heavy Crown Vic.

I know for a fact that MS state troopers top out faster than 140.

I was driving to my house one Christmas night after spending the day with my family and I had to be at work at 3am that night so I was in a bit of a hurry. I had my cruise set 90mph for the 3 hour drive from my home town to my house. On an open stretch of raod I look up and see blue lights comming up behind me fast. I think "Aww HELL.... Im got". So I start slowing down and moving to the right getting ready to get my ass a speeding ticket. Well w/o even looking at this trooper in my mirror ...im thinkin he is comming up behind me. Right when I start to get off to the shoulder of the raod this guy flys by me so fast... he shakes my car! I was like WTF?! So I started speeding up again.. thinking wow I dodged that one. As he was pulling away I wondered how fast he was going so I down shifted to 4th and mashed the gas. I ended up getting right to 140mph and this trooper was STILL walking away from me. I couldnt gain a foot on him. I said screw it at 140 and went ahead and shut her down. Igot 15mins up the road and I see that troopers lights again. There was an injury accident in the south bound lanes (I was north bound) As I passed the accident scene they were landing a med helicopter on the road.

Anyway I rambled a bit too much but yeah... I know FOR SURE.... Mississippi state trooper cars are faster than 140.

You know, thinking about it, my buddies car wasn't an official PI car, it was just an ex-cop car. I'm 90% sure the PI cars have the speed governor removed.

That being said, you're still dealing with a very heavy car being propelled by a stock 2v Mustang motor.

Now, that's only the Crown Vics. I know next to nothing about the Caprices, Camaros, and other vehicles used.
