I have gotten it to 115mph multiple times , and i believe now that i have taken my air-brake plastic mudflaps off it could do 120, but I'm a little scared because the bfgs are only rated for 107mph... next oil change i will give it a shot haha
my 01 2.3 5spd,limits at 98(give or take)on the ohio turnpike.all 4th gear.i went to work this morning and the wind was howling pretty good and i had to stay in 4th just to maintain 65mph.i have a cap and 235/75/15 wild countrys in the rear and 215/75 car tires in the front.empty bed with maybe 20 lbs of tools.im ready to upgrade after 3 years.
i did 108 on the 210 pinned in 5th gear .. but then again i have 205's on 15 inch stockers haha
damn thats impressive!! i got 15 in stockers too and i dont think that mine would do 100 even if i left it in 4th. but then again i dont like to push the gerbals under the hood too much. they tend to get pissed off when i do that :)
my 98 5 speed would get up to 98 flat road but it took atleast 2 min to go from 93 to 98 and 98 is just absolute max unless theirs a hill involved! the highest i ever got was 109 down a big bridge... but thats with very small tires an a 14 inch rim...
Haha, I actually just calculated the theoretical top speed of my truck for a homework problem in my fluids class. Based on a Cd of 0.40 (looked it up somewhere) and hitting the full 112 hp, I got just over 108 mph. Now I just need a place to test it
Ok well hopefully when I get a 4.10 to put in it will be a little better. How about plugs? What if the plugs in the truck are original with 130,000 on them? Think it might do better when I replace them this winter break?
Uh, considering you should really do them every 20K, yes.
