    befor my swap on an oil leaking 93 dx 118 all day. there is no way and if he said he put it in to 5th to do it you know he full of it. if i wound out 4th and droped it into 5th i would drop back to 95-100ish and no more, if not if i just kept going in 4th id hit my red line at 118(190km/h euro tac).


    there is a line that goes to 130

    You know how long it would take to make the d15 get up to 146 miles an hour. I dont have the distance or time to wait for that one to happen. And no it cant happen the gears arent long enough to do 146. But why would you wanna go that fast anyway? That is way too fast for the streets.

    I ran 120mph in mine with 4 fat people in the car on a flat highway with the stock D15B7 and automatic transmission. I seriously doubt that your friend did 146mph though. There's just not enough power in the engine to carry the car at that speed. You can even work it out mathematically and prove him wrong.

    My DX didn't seem to have an electronic limiter. It's supposed to though.

    I pinned my speedo in my old single cam. But my ECU was chipped. And it sure as hell wasn't a DX. I can't remember if I had a governor before that though....

    the gears in a dx tranny are plenty long to do 145.
    but unless it was a steep downhill for 3 miles, it simply didni't happen. no way it has enough power.

    as for the speed limiter, i've found that my p28 will shut off at 128 in 5th, but will not top out in 4th at all.

    my h22a computer limited at 120. but i bought a cheap ass 20 dollar chip off some guy on ebay, i had it put in, and it actually worked, i can rev it to 9 grand and ive gotten up to 7700 in fifth on the highway one night, i almost shit. my civic has suspension mads and all, but it needs tie rods, so it's not so stable.. well anyways, 7700 in fifth is 154 mph. if i wasnt in front of a mustang, i wouldnt have done it. lol :D

    I took my girlfriend's 2001 prelude to redline in 5th gear. I think it was around 147 mph. It was fucking fast, that's for sure....

    I have a 1993 civic SI and I Barried the spedometer at 120 and was at 5800 RPM and my Red line is 8. I took it all the way to 8. Im not sure how fast I was going but I'm assuming 130.

    Bullshit thread........

    It take a lot of power to do 150, period.

    A DX won't do it, I've driven several. 130, okay, 150, like pissedoffsol said, 3 mile downhill with no rev limiter.
