I have seen a tad over 150 before the gears but I did have a custom sct tune and heads/cam cai, pulleys and a few other lil bolt ons.With the gears I don't know but I am sure its considerably less.

you could probably hit 160ish, but after that power is going to limit you, you need lots of power to accelerate the car once up to those speeds.

5th gear with 3.73's should go somewhere around 220 or so.

damn! 160 is fast enough... i'd never wanna go that fast. It starts gettin really scary after 130.

Its crazy how much faster 130 feel than 100... 60 doesnt feel like anything compared to 30. Its some scary stuff.

How about with 400rwhp? how fast with 3.73's? 190 or so?

My buddy when he had an auto 2000gt went 143 stock, when he had an 03 cobra he hit the limiter at 165. I have an 01 bullitt, im guessing 145-150 on it.

400whp wont be getting 190...

I've been in an 02 Z06 that had almost 400whp and could only do 174

Hp is the main limiting factor for top speed. I think the hp needs to increase exponentially for each mph after a certain speed. 5th gear is a super tall gear and will need TONS of TQ to be usable. I was in a stock 02 GT (cat back only) at about 155 going down a slight grade.

I'm sorry... but there are a ton of you bs'ing... You cant go faster than 135 on a gt w/o a tuner or a chip... and i see a ton of you say you are going faster with just a few mods and no tuner or chip... GT's are electronically limited to 135mph!

and 03 cobras only read to 160 and i'm 150% positive that the limiter is set below that... probably 150 or so
