I put on a turbo muffler.It seems to have helped my top end. I run a stock size tires, I'm in 5th gear, tack is reading 4.5K I wonder how fast that is? I'm guessing between 85 or 90. The road is flat maybe a little down hill. It seems faster than ever because I can feel the car catching a little air over some of the bumps.

What car? is the cable broken, or is the speedo head borked?

If its a digidash car(87+) I have a spare digidash with that works.

Easy, tell me your exact tire measurements, your 5th gear ratio, and your diff ratio. we can easily find out how fast you are going by doing some math. I used the same techniques to determine how much slippage there is from engine to wheel with my auto tranny while driving at 4k in drive on the freeway.

Let me see if I can find out what gearing I have. I think I know a site that has all that info.
