Some of this sounds fishy but I may not have all the facts, either. Regardless of how it turns out, let us know, ok?
yes, actually i was pulled over at a shorter distance than he claimed. and yes, i will keep y'all updated.

Yea I'm glad I wasn't pulled over. I would have had a pretty nice ticket. And you don't have to call me sir I just turned 20yr old. Your probably older than me. Lol

Thanks, I was wondering how fast the 4 would go.
Haven't had the time/place to test mine yet, I though it would go more than 110, must be limited by ECM for tire speed rating.
BTW I've had 140 on my Mustangs speedo and I'm a old guy.........

I still can't get a straight answer out of Chevy.

I had my 4 cyl up to just over 180 km/h, I didn't hit the limiter, perhaps I was just below it though

thanks DD. You wouldn't by chance know where I could find something official? Called Chevy HQ - the call center said they couldn't find anything.
