I got stopped doing 82 in a 75 on flat highway the other day. No ticket though. I was kinda surprised - about the speed I mean. The cop was hunting tourists, so my local ID saved me.

Since I put the new motor in, I can use 5th occasionally too. This is with 26.5 A/T tires, spfi ea82.

What kinda results do ya'll get? Going down a big hill doesn't count. :rolleyes:

I havent tried topping it out, but the GPS told me I was doing 83 last time I ran the nice long flat straight highway through the forest. This was a comfortable fast cruise. I'd guess I'd probably top out just over 90.

new gens I think are capped at around 124 or so for imprezas (non WRX)

I know I had my mom's 96 OBS up to 115 or so once :brow:

I think I'd be scared to take my lifted brat over 85 or so (actual speed not indicated speed)

Flat out my hatch will hit 72mph and that with a couple of bad lifters. The 87 wagon has seen 90ish mph but you really gotta run the rpm's up:brow: . Tim

heh... i pegged the speedo in that same yellow wagon, when it had the EA81 in it... with slightly smaller tires (like.. 25.5 inch)

the sad thing is, i topped out the impreza wagon, at about 95 or so too... :rolleyes:

My 86 gl with 29 inch swampers has the upgraded speedo out of a loyale (so it shows 100mph and above) and has broken a 100mph with the help of a very large downhill run. :burnout:

Following Arch home from Gilbert he said we were fluctuating between 70 and 80 mph depending on traffic, wind, and grade of hills. That's fast enough for me :drunk:

my hatch will do 100+ thats with a gps on the dash.
it actualy smooths out alot past70, and acts like it likes it.... cept for the lack of a front sway bar =]

with an ea82 mpfi motor, and some 26 inch tires, it would go right up to 85, on the speedo then stop, so i figure 90something...

funny how the extra 50-70 horsepower doesnt net a much higher mph...

i used to race my dad in his z71, and i knew if i got up to 100 he would slowly fade into the rear view, cuz his was governed at 97 lol!

170!
kmh which is just over a 100mph, could go faster I'm sure but I really don't like the feel of my car at that sort of speed.
