Unless you have your SCT or Diablo dealer disable the topend governor...then I've heard 150's are possible.

Never catch me going anywhere near that fast unless it's at time trials at Bonneville or El Mirage!

Well, of course. Out of the factory, though, it's electronically limited to 140.

I've heard 143 is what the computer limits it to. I've been 140, then I let off the gas. It took some time to get from 120 to 140. I can't see it going much over 150 stock.

Drive it like you stole it or somebody might catch you and steal it.

I heard the limiter is at 143.............I've had mine at around 135 and the hood looked like it was going to fly off. That, and the fact that it steers too quick at those speeds scared the hell out of me.

Car and Driver magazine said Ford speed governor is 143 but if removed should top out at 160 mph.

Yeah right. A Dodge Viper has 500 HP and is a much better sports car all around than the Mustang, and the Viper will top out at 189.

Not in this lifetime.
