I see you have an 02 WRX. I heard it had a speed nazi at 130mph. Mine is an 03, no nazi. Look at your speedo. Mine goes to 140 then it has the letters MPH under that with no peg. I've had it up to the "M". I'm guessing 153-155mph. Bone stock. It was in the Utau desert with no cars from horison to horison.

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.

Wonder how many people really go to a "track". Fastest Ive gone was 125, felt like there was plenty of umph left.

150 is crazy in a car. I've hit it on a motorcycle and the road seems like it gets about an inch wide.

I do a lot of track days, however the longest straight I run on is at Pueblo. Top speed around 125-130 on that straight. I had to resort to other means to see top speed. The governer on the 02 is set at 148-149 (stock). I believe the AP overrides that, but I haven't been stupid enough to discover what it'll do. At 140, a very small pavement anomoly can ruin your day, and a small animal or rock can send you airborne. Our cars do feel incredibly stable at high speed though

actually the car is only limited by areodynamics. The engine cannot not make enough power to go any faster than around 130mph stock. However if you have a head wind or a tail wind that will make a big difference.

I have been to 145 and still had lots of room to go on the tach.

I buried the speedo on my wagon bone stock. I never made it to the governor, but was well north of 140 mph at 6300 rpm. The car has plenty of power to get through the air. Sorry to shoot down your aero theory

135 and then it kinda felt lik ei hit the nazi or something cause it slowed me down. this was on the alien highway on the way to vegas. 300 miles of straight nothingness and no cars. after i slowed down though and i mean right after i ddi i saw a cop. haha i love my luck
that would be hard to explain.
'so wheres the fire...?'

I hit around 135mph with just a catback on, so it was basically stock. I figure if you have enough power you can hit about 175-180 on the stock gearing(5mt).
