I've done over 135, then it cut off but I was not looking at the speedo to see where exactly it did. Last time I peeped down was over 135.

I don't think that there's a top speed limiter, I've done 130 (210km/h) with room still to go.

no limiter in USDM Honda ECUs, if there was a limiter it would fuel cut at 112mph.

Is the car stock? I hit 120 without any effort at all, on a closed course in Germany of course :laugh:

Sounds like a lack of power

There is a limiter.. I've hit a limiter at about 142-144 mph in 5th and in 6th gear when I had a reflash. I have gone about 155 mph and haven't hit a limiter since my build and it felt like it still wanted to keep going.

Perhaps you were low on blinker fluid?










haha sorry just messin. I'm wondering if a sensor felt like you were getting low oil pressure and decided to back off.

After my kpro I have made the needle go past 155, It could be alot of things, but if it feels like its breaking up your injectors could be clogged a bit. If you know what a fuel cut sounds like and feels like than I would say to run until a 1/4 of gas the use some seafoam. Could be a million other things

Okay yeah wasnt sure if that was normal pr anything; im sure ive gone over 120 and just not realized, speed freak here:) haha but alright just wasnt sure if there was any kind ofimiter. Ahe has about 120,000 miles now so i guess she could use a tune upl of some sort. Yeah just an intake on it now so pretty much stock. I wanna supercharge her very badly though, just need to save some big $$$$ first Lol

Most Acuras dont have limiters/governors on speed, you just have to keep an eye on the tachometer so that it doesn't reach high rpms in redline because you can hit the rpm limiter if you are going too fast in a low gea
After about 220 km you have to stay in 6th. If on fifth on that speed the rpm limiter kicks in.

Basing my accounts from the track on a 2011 stock tsx, 6spd manual
