    astra coupe turbo top end speed

    only done it the once but when i was in 4th it seemed as if the car was limited to about 5k revs in 4th and in 5th gear. it stopped and didnt seem to want to go any faster in 5th at around 135.

    as far as im aware there is no limiter on the astra's or anything? The car is mainly standard with only hoses changed under the bonnet and lowered 40mm.

    helpsies! :O

    firstly, u will get a lot of abuse of people for asking this, as unless your on a private road, im sure your aware, its illegal.

    but i think your looking at a genuine 150mph, not much more as your power will be decreasing at just after 5k

    no limiter, u should get it hooked up to tech 2 and check for fault codes

    i only asked out of curiosity really, just to see if it could be a problem slowing the car down in general or creating an inefficiency in the engine.

    i cant really imagine any reason id want to be doing over a 100 nevermind 135 on a regular basis! i prefer to stay alive thanks
