true, but I think 40 km before hitting 240 km on the speedometer is more acomplishable.

under ideal conditions you would probably be able to hit 200, and with a chip you would for sure be able to.

I have a bavarian autosport chip, works great, and has pretty good gains on my car, not sure what they would be on yours....and I have also heard good things about the Jim.C chip.

My parents ford escort says 140 top speed and I almost got it back around to the zero felt like 200KM in an escort

My 325is bone stock went to 230-235km but those last 20km or so took a very long stretch.

And now after my bavarian auto chip was installed it only does 200km Of course no one knows why but I guess you never really need to go 230km unless your a freak.

Make sure you got the right tires when you do those speeds to or it could get ugly

Ya know what I have found with the bav auto chips, is that they tend to run a little lean at high RPM's, could be just me, but in my car that translated to pinging, I'm gonna be changing the fuel pressure regulator, and fuel filter at the recommendation of bav auto, and will see if that does it....cuz they seem to think its not the chip, but it didn't do it before the chip was in...go figure

120 mph X 1.61 = 193.2 KM/h

For me 140km/hr is enough . For now I am goin to pick up Mtech 2 trunk wing . The chip is not that urgent for now. I think M tech tunk spoiler will look bad ass on my car.
