    depends on the tranny and I believe I hit 148 with the S4 tranny, GSR should be able to hit that.

    depends on tire size... but gear wise, it can hit 155-ish on stock 195/55/15s and it will pull to 140 -ish, give or take the innaccuracy of the speedo at those speeds

    I didn't think the GSR would be that fast stock, I was thinking like 135 maybe 140.

    Damn that's fast! You are a loco mofo to hit 144 with 4 people. I bet you had some scared passengers.

    no, its long, strait, and the road has afence running all along, therefore no animals can run out and go wham, plus the three other people in the car are more adventurous than I am. AND this was about 3 or 4 years ago...I've grown up since then and I hardly go past 75 on the highway...

    lol

    140 in my '02 SI. Took a little bit to get there, but I did it. Top speed is actually, 138, in the SI it will never go faster than that, unless you have bigger tires, longer gears, transmission, downhill. It is like that for every car, my speedo read 140, I had bolt-on's, so maybe the speedo was off. I was in the car with my gf too.

    but the type R tranny is shorter meaning you get better acceleration, but the top speed is lowered. The GSR tranny is longer so you can go faster without hitting red line. Hell if you had the power to do it, the LS transmission in fifth at 8000 RPM's is 181 give or take a few miles per hour.

    181 is even good enough to outrun the po-po!

    to get there, you have to have a monster setup running 600+hp but yea, 180 is pretty fast.
