    I have done a search with no luck, just wondering what the top speed is for the 4.5 1fz had mine touching 120mph today on a flat section of motorway/freeway
    it may have gone a bit faster but needed to exit, just wondered what the norm is?

    I'm sure LX_TREME can chime in with a decent top speed number.
    I had mine mine up to 95 with my current configuration and just above 105 mph when it was stock.

    You guys are nuts. :flipoff2:

    I've had mine to 80mph so far and that was fast enough. If I want to go deep triple digits I'll stick with the Supra. ;p

    I had mine redlined at 130 on I-94 in Milwaukee during a snow storm.... Oh wait, that was my CRX..... Anyway, I passed a cop! Not funny or fun but I figured why stop now, so I acted like I didn't see him and kept going.. He never did catch up.. Poor RWD Caprice sure tried I bet... Lucky day for me I think...

    I cruise along at 60-series speeds...I like that pace. No hurry, no rush. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

    I"ve hit 100 in my 91' and had to slow down when radar went off. Even though my speedo only goes 110 I bet the old girl could do a bit better.

    http://autospeed.drive.com.au/cms/A_0950/printArticle.html This is still the Inline 6

    Personally I"ve never tried a top speed run in my FZJ80. I know my dad's LX hits 110 mph by the time I hit the next mailbox down the road. It could have gone faster but what was the point? There was no point to that speed. I had a LS 400 up to 120 on a recent test drive and it still had a lot more but at 45 mph over the speed limit I was already pushing my luck. It actually had me thinking about buying another 80 after that test drive. Buying gas is cheaper than insurance and speeding tickets. At 82 mph in the 80 with the cruise set on the interstate I never have a chance of getting a ticket at our 75 mph speed limits and that is plenty fast.

    The top speed of my 91 was 92 mph downhill.

    Apology for my late reply, but Mr President with all due respect but shouldnt we
    consider and calculate more of: High Winds=Speed=AeroDynamics=Suspension geometry=Hi Perf Tires(Which you may want go less air and more metal) VS 2.5,3,5,6...etc lift up=Winds=No Aero=34,38,40 big ass tires=More drag on the trannys :frown: i think all those fine TUNED not made and appropriate for Top Speed and please ABORT the mission right away :doh: :flipoff2:
