It's usually there for a reason...Why would you need to go over something like 125 miles anyways?

The rev limiter would limit your rev's not the speed limiter. And chances are with the small amount of power you're putting down you won't be able to go much over 110 anyway Also unless you modify it a ton the stock rev limiter is fine because it should be set at a rev farther above even when you are making no more power.

Why because there's a difference between a rev limiter and a governor and because there is a high chance that stock power wise he won't be able to go far beyond wat the governor is set to? And because stock rev limiters don't really need to be messed with until you are making power past the stock rev limiter?

Trust me, 210 horsepower can get a car like the Eclipse to the high 130/ low 140 mph range.

Misread, thought it was a non-turbo.

Even the GS and RS can go over 110mph. But I'm almost sure you could not have misread GS-T for RS.

Yes indeed there is a difference between a rev limiter and a governor, however you powers of observation need a little correcting. All cars make power past the stock limit. Whether its 8K or 6.5K, power will still be made past the limit. The question is how safe is it to make power in that range?

While a governor might not directly inhibit your RPM, the ecu kicking you back in 5th gear at 6K would definitely sell you short of the top limit of 7500. The two are two completely different "safety" mechanisms, but when discussing top speeds (as the original question asked) they become somewhat related...

Let us not forget GS.

Also, most cars power band drops off before the rev limiter kicks in. Cam and ignition timing and exhaust evacuation becomes a major hinderance at high RPM. Its stupid to shift when you hit the rev limiter because chances are your power dropped off a long time ago. If you want to know when to shift, get your car dynoed. That will tell you when you should shift.

Thats nice, I'm glad you know more of what I misread than I do.
