I have a 99, I dont have that problem, I can cruise at 100 without the governor kicking in.

I've got a 97 and i can cruise easily at 110 without anything kicking in, 92 seems a bit odd <img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I've hit 110 on my car, even if i wanted to go faster, I wouldnt have. It gets unstable and my shocks are dead after dropping it, so when I hit dips on the road/freeway the rear passengers smack their foreheads on the headliner <img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>

i have brought my car to 185 Km/h (sorry not sure what that is mph) but that is the most she would go. It did take a while to get there though.

I had mine to 110mph and it handled it fine.. I would have hated to see what would happen if i had to dodge something though.... 13's at that speed wouldn't hold to well....

X1's dont have governers since they are carby. Disconnecting the VSS will trigger a CEL and make your car 'jerky' changing gears and pulling to halt - been there with the X2 injection system on the X1 (no VSS). I dont recommend it.

Sounds to me like your ignition wires are about to bite the dust. That or you need a new fuel filter. Both can cause bogging under high engine load. Max speed driving is just that.

Cold nights will make it worse since the air is more dense and the ECU needs to deliver more fuel which can exacerbate both problems.

My 2000 has hit 115. It stayed at 110 for a long time while I was racing my friend in his saturn. I had my muffler off and where the pipe ends points up on the the bottom of the trunk and it melted the foam on the bottom of the spare tire cover. oops<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I typically cruise between 75 and 85. Occasionally I have had it up to just inder 100 MPH. Having a wife and kids put a definite cap on the speed I do.
