i got the OHC up to 115 with the rev limiter and i bet it cold have done atleast 125. but the 5.0 on a straight line i bearly past 100, and down a hill i was doing 115. According to the speedo. I was being safe, it was late at night on the highway. i live in Nebraska so all the highways are straight as can be. I miss the OHC. It kinda was a mistake buying the 5.0. It would have been better if they offered it with a 5speed.

I was doing 85 or 95 max with the limiter and without 120 and still going but the speedo ends at 120.

Most was 130 in my '01 M3 with still plenty of go (stopped because I dont want anymore tickets).
