my 2000 3.0 2wd would go to 102 before the governor kicked in. After I lifted it I was lucky to get 70.

My 03 cuts out at 91 but I haven't got it that fast in probably 3 years

I used to think it was sweet flying down the highway. I have hit my limiter of 91 about 4 times then i realized it was stupid and i don't want to do it with the 33's so i don't go over 75

Don't mean to be a *******, but the truck seems to lack a lot to be driven that fast.

I'm sorry, I still see nothing stating you had the speed limiter in the PCM shut off, if not, 92 is all you'll do.

Top speed is for rookies , acceleration is where it's at.

From your signature:

*...3 1/2inch stainless tip.
*Accell Performance Spark Plug Wires.
*E3 Performance Spark Plugs.
*K&N Cold Air intake
*K&N Air Filter

None of the above actually do anything to begin with (other than lighten you wallet). The ECU starts a variable round robin of fuel injector cut-off preventing any futher accelleration at 92mph. Unless your ECU is defective or you did this foolish maneuver assisted by gravity going down the Mt Washington auto road, then it is not possible.

In any case, I discourage you from testing this theory any further. There is a reason the speed limter is set for 92mph and isn't just to prevent reckless driving.

Listen, I know I haven't done much with my truck. I know this. I also know my truck 102 mph. The only other thing that was different, but I don't think it would effect anything. The speed sensor went out a few months ago and it was replaced. I posted a thread about that also. Back to the mph. I have a pic where is says like 98 but I didn't get one of 101. I honestly don't care if anyone on here believes me. I am not trying again. Last time I tried I saw a cop and I don't like going to jail and paying fines.
IF I COULD DELETE THIS THREAD I WOULD!
I have no reason to lie and I also don't like to be called one.

Hey Tom. Won't you delete this thread for me. I am tired of being called a liar. I am fine with people believing me or not. I really don't care. I am just tired of reading about it on here. LOL. Please and Thanks!
