S rated php cars are limited, V rated php cars are not. Same goes for the "Sports" model.

Cars like the Intrepid R/T, 300M Special, and others with V-rated tires from the factory do have a limit it's just way up there at 143 MPH.

IIRC, the T-rated cars have an upper limit of 118 MPH - but don't quote me on that, it's been awhile.

The Police Specials are rated at 138 MPH.


That information is straight off the Chrysler computer system. In 2005(?) when I got the new computer for my R/T, I was with the tech when he programmed the computer. There were a whole bunch of options available and all of them showed the MPH limit.

There were some rumors that the first V-rated cars did not have a limit from the factory but I don't think any one managed to really prove that - though some tried. A lot of people don't realize how fast 143 MPH is or how much open road you need to get there. Even the Michigan tests only managed to reach into the lower 130's (IIRC) on a 2-mile run ... ;-)

All good information, thank you. I just want to point out though, this is a First Gen section. What is posted above is for Second Gen.

Oops! *redface*


Public Service Announcement: It is dangerous to ever exceed the speed rating of the tires on your car. ;-)


Edit
And I should have known better than to question Veeb0rg - he knows what he's talking about, especially with the 1st Gen. Should have looked closer at the poster's name ... :-/

I dont know about that. I raced a 150 mph Mustang on the hwy. And i was faster top end. This was the RIP 2000 R/T. That Mother Mopar bought back from me, for sticking wide open during cold weather. Over 250 1999 and 2000 LH recorded with this problem, by the US Gov hwy safety board. Plus i worked for DC at the time ( Roseville Chrysler) when the 2 techs came from the home office. And they both said that there was no limiter. Aero drag is what limited top speed. Also there was at least one or two Test drives. By Auto Mag's that listed the top end at over 145 mph.

Then there is proof that the first models actually had no limit. I'd never seen that posted before even with all the discussions we used to have about it ...

With the compression on the 3.5L you'd be better off with a small blower ...

Just because the subject is beaten to death doesn't mean we beat the n00bs senseless that come in and ask - but yes, err, no, it won't work.





No, Squills wasn't beating you senseless.
