It doesn't remove the speed limited, tho, does it?? Maybe one of those doohickies that plugs into the OBD2 port would help with that. .




Speed limiters on civvy vics is about 112mph. This is because of the driveshaft.

Police vics have a speed limiter of 135 (+/-) BUT, they have the "police" driveshaft that can handle the resonance/vibrations of those higher speeds (IIRC)

So yes, he will be able to go faster, WHY! but he may also pole-(driveshaft)-vault his car.

My Grand Marqis is limited to 103, not 112. Does any body have a idea at what speed the civi drive shaft will fail at so I can not go that fast?
I only want the car to be able to go faster if needed. When I supercharge the car I don't want to even come close to the top speed limiter. And I want to outrun my buddies S10

I thought that there was a crossmember that prevented the front of the driveshaft from falling down. At least that's how it is on my '93 GM. This would allow the back to fall, but not the front. Am I correct on this?

You voted for the top speed limiter before you voted against it. You dont want to get close to the top speed but want the car to go faster and want to beat your buddy's S10. (street racing? I would assume, because you won't get close to 103 or 112mph drag racing)

he probably only has a 3.27 rear end, steel shaft. I would at least put a regular aluminum shaft on it to run the 130 dept.

Close Colonel, Just a matter of bragging rights , besides I don't plan on running the car faster than 120, if I did I wouldn't know how fast I was going. How fast are the Panthers properly tuned with a supercharger kit in the 1/4?
