105 is about my high also. I would have loved to take it higher, but...... (fill in the blank, anything you think of will be accurate).

noel i dont understand what your saying
that the papers tell your tsx redlines in fourth at 200?
that is far from possible.
from personal experience, when i was gassing my car for full speed, redlining every gear, at 5th gear i was going 190km/h at 5900 revs. it would not accelerate any more in 5th, i was confused. so i upshifted to 6th and gained to 220, from there on it was a gain of 1 km/h every 10 seconds or so, so i couldnt get it too high, it was taking too long.
the whole trip was with one heavy foot.

That wasn't a paper measurement, I do have an Injen CAI as well. Your tyre pressures are also important if you're constantly doing high speeds.

Modifications do change how speeds are obtained. There are other variables of concern ala - Vehicle weight, road conditions, weather, temperature, engine oil type, spark plugs, fuel, modifications, etc.

It's no longer possible for me to replicate the same results. My speeds have now changed because I've got even more modifications than before. While I've yet to tested the differences. I have no doubt it'll be much quicker than before.

So far I have only had my Euro up to 150 kph, already got a speeding fine this month, not gonna push for another one yet :D I have got her up to 150 k's from 0 a couple of times, damn the Euro accelerates fast when you put the foot down, seriously, going uphill she still accelerated past traffic through the overtaking lane and by the time I hit the top of the hill I was going 150 ! Oh my Euro just passed 4000k's this weekend :)
