    maybe it was because my car was weighed down too damn much with a system and two other people. but idk i was talking to people and heard that they capped the cars at 113, or was it just the fact of a rev limiter?

    You can get a chipped ecu, but you will need to convert to obd1 to do so (conversion harness + obd1 ecu). Places like xenocron.com can help you out.


    And please, stop doing 113 with two other people in the car on public roads. That's just a newspaper headline waiting to happen.
