well you could use the search button but the governor is set at ~126mph in the GAGT and i think 108 or 112 in the GASE. i have gone 128 and never hit the governor, probably speedo error they can be off at higher speeds.

alright i give... BUT to reach the top speed you have to throw it in 3rd gear and not D (D is overdrive and will keep you from going to the top speed) Theres no set top speed on every car, each are diffrent but the GT's range from 126-132 approx.

hmm strange, i never could get mine to do that. Only in 3rd i could, maybe it differs between years.

its worth a shot, but im guessing no faster than around 132. If you go faster than that congrats you got a fock up car which is a good thing they forgot your speed limiter. lol

*OFF TOPIC* how much better are the HIDs over the silverstars?

oh HID's are 10x better than any filament bulb, but compareing HID's to filament bulbs is like comparing peas and carrots.

HID's are ran off of gasses and salts and are powered by a ballast thats why they are so bright. But they are also a few more $$ than filament bulbs so you pay for the brighter stuff unforunately.

Mine was left in overdrive and I reached approx 130 (give or take 5mph cause of my EWFG's) when the limiter kicked in.
