i know that i have the speed limiter at 112, or is it 115? anyway i know i dont have the sport package because i have a rev limiter at 4k. ive never gotten over 90 before but i decided to go fast the other day i got up to 120 and i was like "this is weird" my tires are rated for 149 mph so i was ok there but i wanted to keep my license so i slowed down. i was going downhill but that wouldnt make the limiter not work or would it?

If you for sure don't have the sport package, then your speedometer is off. You will definitely fill the limiter kick in.

Unless chipped I believe all cougs are rev limited at 6750...non-sport are governed at 110-115...

I have made 120, the governor kicked in. I want to change that SO badly. Even though i do not regularly drive that fast, the fact that I am being limited sucks.

One early morning around 2 me and my friend were out just driving and i wanted to see if my Cougar could hit 150 like the speedo can go. So as i was getting on the high-way i took her to the max (just around 6000) in every gear than into 5th and hit 150 on the reg speedo and i had the digital one up and it was also at 150mph. I have the sports package, but it went to quick b/c i was going down hill, but i hit 150 and thats all i wanted to do. If you search "top speed" you will find my post with about 80 posts with it about top speeds!

I was coming from my cousins place at around 3am & I was wondering that day if my zetec could actually hit 150, which I knew it couldn't but wanted to know the top speed on it. So on a back road to my house I dropped into 4th @70 all the way to 90, shifted to 5th & it stoped it @ 115 but I hit 120 on a hill so it kind of sucked because I wanted to hit at least 130mph but o well I have no need to really go at those speeds anyway unless racing Si's. lol

The car in stock form is highly aero-limited. I've got pics someplace of us testing my car before and after with smoke-sticks and a high power fan, really shows where the drag is on a stocker vs one with heavy mods to the exterior.

i hear all of thes 115's and 120's i have a regular old 2k2 atx but i sit there and cruise at 127... won't go faster, revs wont raise, so i hit the "avg speed" and reset it for instantaneous, says 127.
not sport model + 2k2 + atx + no chip = ...127?
