I got my Trep up to 180km/h :biggrinfl (111mph according to google) last night with no hint of factory imposed limitations. I only slowed down since I was approaching city (Belleville is more of a town right?) limits. My odometer only goes up to 200km/h. I was just wondering if anyone has gotten their Canadian 2.7 litre up to the max and what exactly it was.

I've been to 110 mph in my 2000 es 'sticked 2.7 ( I'm old enough to prefer to talk in Mph instead of Kph when over 100 Mph), but backed off at that point. Nice and smooth with more pedal to go, but I would suspect the programming would have put a stop to the fun pretty soon. The limiter should be the same for both "Chrysler" LH's and "Dodge" LH's, same "stuff" - different pile.
:frenzy:

And no, it wasn't on public roads.

LOL, we only have public roads around here, unless U count the 407 as private..
Meh.. we won't tell anyone, don't worry !! :icon_mi_1
It was not on public roads.

Although it "seems" every 400 series highway in Ontario has a speed limit of around 160 kph when I'm up there. People just seem to drive those roads fast. Of course, most of them are pretty straight and 4 lanes one way. Little different in NS.

I know where there's an old drag strip in sackville. Hard to find and burried in the woods. Found it on day when wheeling when I was a pup.

My experience was like BJ's, I could've easily gone more but I chickened out since I was approaching a town. Avenger, you have a 3.5 though right?

No you couldn't bcs I didn't chicken out and still didn't go any faster with pedal to the metal. The governor will kick in at 180 or something close to that !! And Avenger also has an R/T and they don't have speed governors I'm told !

Chicken out?

Not likely, I ran out of pavement where I did it.

Remember, I wasn't on public roads.

And just for the record, I've gone alot faster than 180 kph gentlemen.

I just used his own term, wasn't trying to make anyone look like a chicken. And I'm sure you have but not on your 2.7 Intrepid, unless you don't have a governor wich is what we're talking about here, not who's gone faster than who. This isn't going to turn into another pissing contest is it ?? :cool:

Damn, I wish I tried to push it a little more just to see if 180 was the max. My dad got our old 94 caravan up to 160 before it started shaking like a mofo. Are there any cheap and/or decent drag strips in the GTA area?

No, no, no.......

Term's correct. Not in the Intrepid. As I said, I've only been to 110 with her.

Been a "little" bit faster than that at Silverstone. I did the "Drive Silverstone Experience" last time I was there. Ferrari 308, porsche 911, Lotus, Audi, open wheel.........
It was a ball. Well worth the 500 or so Cdn I spent.

The autobahn was fun too...........

The 400's are only 3 lanes not 4.
Anyways I got my 1993 Vision TSI 3.5L to 210KM/H on the QEW LOL. Right after a concert in Toronto on Canada Day in 2004. My speedo goes to 240km/h but at 210 i was having to do some risky lane changes so I slowed it down. But the highways were nice at 11pm cause of the fireworks. I can't beleive there were no cops cause I did it from Downtown Toronto to Burlington/Hamilton. I made that run in 16mins where it normally takes 40mins or so.

400 north has 4 lanes from the 401 up to Steeles, after that I don't remember, maybe it goes to three but I don't take it north so often to remember .
