i know this dosnt have to do with intrepids but i heard and seen stuff on dodge forums, that if u turn the key forward it will bypass the limiter,(it will not try to start it)it will shut down all computer and u will keep on accelerating,it also said it will work on some other dodges. lol i dont want to try it at all but my dad has a ram hemi. and i was just wondering if its true or if anyone heard of that...

I dunno, If I'm already going 118mph in a 'regular car' I really don't want to take my hands off the steering wheel........

I've heard that too, though my R/T is limited at 143Mph. I don't think dickin' around with the key @ that speed is wise.

yeah probably not a good idea. I would think that by doing that it would engage the starter again, and by doing so youd fry the starter.

Nah, the PCM won't let it.

I'm just not interested in taking my paws off the wheel at that speed.

Try it.....turn your key while your engine is running :)

Seriously, try it!

CDN R/T is right, the car will NOT engage the starter in any position except park or neutral.

+1 rep for CDN R/T for clearing this misunderstood feature of our cars!
