me and my friends found this abandoned strip where we mess around with our cars, and i wanted to see how fast my 94 v6 would go. as i was in 5th gear, i felt the engine sorta die, and i slowed down a bit, and then it came back, couple seconds later died again. i noticed this happened at about 114 mph, and also 3k rpms. is there an rpm limiter, or a speed limiter somewhere? or does it have anything to do with the ecu (i think thats what its called). is there anything i can do to get rid of this and make it go faster? not that im gonna do this in a public road or highway, but just wanna see how fast i can make my car go. its all stock, except the guy i bought it from put a custom dual exhaust.

There is a Speed limiter, and you'll need an electronic tuner to take it off.

yeah, it's matched to the speed rating of your tires. Going faster may result in a blowout, hence the limiter.

you should upgrade your rubber BEFORE removing it, but you'll find it's around 136 mph.

touche....touche, wouldnt wanna blowout my tires. now, im thinking of upgrading my dash as well, as the max on the speedometer is marked at 120. 136 seems reasonable, since 115 is @3k rpms, so maybe it can hit bout 136 before the 5k redline. i checked online what stock tires my car came with.....P205/65R15's dont know what stock are rated. what i got on right now are Toyo Proxes H4 size 225//60R15 95H's. now, im in not mistaken, H rating can handle up 130, so i should be fine for now, as long as i dont push it too much past 130 once i get the tuner, then when these tires wear out, imma replace em with V rated or higher, ill figure it out later.
