ive heard that all intrepids have a top speed of 118mph b/c of a limiter type thing. Does anyone know anymore about this or if there is a limiter at all?

Heh, I've been to 119, then I was worried about my H rated tires... :)

Soon as I get some rims and some z rated rubber, and that I know my suspension/steering linkage is up to par for that speed, I'll be sure to try it out.. ;)

easily hit 116 without any shuddering or potential troubles arising. I do believe there is a restrictor that wont let you go much faster though.

You need to specify what type of intrepid. Second gen se, es, and some motorsports r/t's all have a limiter at 118. I don't know about the sxt at all but I know that the rt doesn't have a limiter. The limiter is there because our stock tires are only rated at 118 mph. I know nothing of first gen intrepids.

There are or were different limiters for different locations starting from 108mph to 135, 145, and no limiter. The only way to remove it is by programing.

I have a first gen (Eagle Vision) 3.5 and I can get past 120 MPH. I have no limiter at all.
Maybe it´s because it´s a european version...don´t know.Or I had better rated stock wheels.

I could live with a limiter though, since going past 120 isn´t worth a premature tranny rebuild in my opinion...

I've hit 135MPH before, but I got scared and had to slow down :( The car keeps pulling and pulling.

You shoulda bought an R/T... browse thru the R/T SXT section. Some R/T owners are claiming 145+ Ain't no speed limiters on R/T's except some motorsports editions

2003 SXT 3.5L HO, 108mph speed limiter....completly hate this limiter. I must hit it 3 times during my half hour drive home late nights. Turbo ( i believe) was making eliminators for the 2nd gens but stopped...so sad. With the Kenne Bell Optimize II upgrade (around $349 if they do 2nd gen computers) they can take off the limiter only if asked to, not to mention all the other gains aquired by the optimizer II.

108??!! That SUX!! I can't believe they'd set it that low! I hit that over couple of weeks or so just for fun! I've hit my limiter (119-ish) a couple times going back and forth between Utah and California....gotta love I-15 through Nevada! :biggrin:
