First off are you trolling?

2nd what is it limited to?

3rd bet a uprev would get rid of it.

I prefer not using remote start or drive-thrus, both hurt your MPG's a lot & you shouldn't let your vehicle idle more that a minute or so especially unattended.

Pfft we always want to know how fast our vehicles can go.




In case anyone is wondering, a leveled 4x4 on AT tires with CAI, headers, exhaust, and UpRev can hit 128. According to a friend.

Re: Top Speed Limiter

Up Rev tune has changed the top speed limiter to my foot instead of 119 mph. I have achieved 139 MPH ground speed according to GPS. Not recommended for extended periods of time as it will shred your tires and a truck is not designed for that speed. Top end in the VW GLI is 157 MPH.

All done on a closed course, don't attempt at home.

You know back in the 90's Car and Driver did a 140mph article. A 4.6L Mustang GT could only achieve 137mph. While a similar priced Z28 Camaro with the 5.7 LT1 achieved 155mph IIRC
I think it's crazy a VW GLI (Jetta/Rabbit?) could do 157mph my how times change.

I had some work done to it, added 65 HP and 70 ftlbs torque with a custom tune over the stock ECM release. Next year a bigger turbo and down pipe will add another 30 HP and more boost from the turbo. And the tires on it are "Y" rated up to 186mph. Off-topic , I know, sorry.

Re: Top Speed Limiter

Stock VW's will surprise you. My grandmother had a Jetta that could do 130 stock.

Re: Top Speed Limiter

Back in 2000 I was caught doing in excess of 150 plus mph east of Baton Rouge! 1991 Mustang with a stroke motor and supercharger.
Handcuffed sitting in patrol car and my tail was chewed on for almost hour! I knew the officer from the race track! Her gave me a warning ticket and allowed to go! No fairy tail! I brought my Titan up to 110 and said good enough!

I've got a 2016 GTI (yeah, O/T I know!) with JB4. FWD SUCKS, I am over it. Keep throwing money at your GLI so the only races you can do are at extra-legal speeds. My GTI would blow the tires off mercilessly, up until about 30mph where I could reliably "hook up" unless the roads are wet. Highway pulls, yeah all day long. But, a new EcoBoost F-150 schooled me in they ways of traction, and my Titan will kill the GTI until speeds are illegal, just due to FWD wheelspin, That's why I bought an AWD Q60. No more traction probs!

Oh yeah, and back on topic (OP)....
I believe my Titan tops out at 9xMPH stock. I now have UpRev, and the speed limiter is gone. I don't dare to test my luck. As has been mentioned, likely the tires on your truck aren't rated for above 100mph.

Additionally, the Titan does very well in an accident against most cars at any speed, but, if you ragdoll the Titan at 100+, the laws of physics won't be on your side as nearly 6,000 pounds of kinetic destruction is unleashed. Yeah, you're probably gonna die.

Titans are limited to 108 by the stock ECU tune

my 1996 maxima se? I hit 130 before I ran out of road/balls.
Same with my 2003 fx35, though way easier than the maxima.

I don't think i've broken 90 in my 05 titan, or my 02 4motion passat wagon (2.8L v6, not the 1.8 or the w8).
