fastest I have gone is 214 km/h (mph I wish hehe).

So after conversion

214 Kilometers per hour equals 132.973 Miles (statute) per hour

214 Kilometers per hour equals 115.551 Miles (International, nautical) per hour

So whatever you crazy American's use for MPH, from looking at the speedo, I think its the 133 MPH.

To get that extra bit, shift it out of D and put it in 3rd and red line it.

Avg speed travelling from one city to the other was at 127 MPH over a distance of about 60 miles.

So you guys should be able to pull more out of it!!! Like I said shift it into 3rd and let her redline O/D and the electronic govenor won't kick in that way.

I had 4 people in the car and one guy was easily over 200 pounds. The other was close to 200 pounds then there was me at 150 and my friend at around 140.

I dont recommend it though with the stock 14"s cause a slight belt shift cause of the crappy tires and your pretty well dead.

Just a suggestion

i thought we were on 15 " tires now i am confused maybe u guys in asia get 14".Anyway i am going to india to meet my parants and my dad drives a new sonata I4 and my old santro is running there so i will try to find some aftermarket .The factory is like 60miles from where i live and i heard that they have some good aftermarket in there sporting section .If so i am getting myself some stuff.
PS :The last i checked sonata out sold accords and accents are like the most relaible cars there and the after market is suppose to be good.

Sorry I got a custom Sonata pretty well. It was before the release of the GL V6. It is actually an I4 with the V6 swapped in by Hyundai.

I put up a tantrum and got the car for a little bit over $20,000 Cdn which is $4,000 less then what the GL V6 was selling for a couple monthes later.

The S/N is even officially for an I4 and even though I got to the same dealership all the time, they are always like "I forgot you got the V6 in there".

If you got the 15"s its all good though. I don't I only got 14"s and hub caps.

I've had my XG sitting steady on an indicated 135mph. How accurate is the speedo? Who knows, but that's what the needle pointed at <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Too bad, but I hear the 2002 XG's have a new speed limiter for just over 120 or so.<hr width=60% noshade size=1 align=left>2001 Bright Silver XG300

Hi there. I'm a new member and I have a 2002 Sonata with the I4 and 5 speed. A few weeks ago I was going to my friend's place which is about 50 miles away. It was between 40 and 45 degrees F, there was nobody on my side of the highway, and I had just past my 500 mile break-in period for the engine so I figured, what the heck. I threw it into 4th and floored it. I shifted back into 5th around 120 and kept it floored. Believe it or not, I was able to get up to 134 mph and keep it there! It sure did surprise the hell out of me.

By the way, love the site. I'm glad I found it! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Of course there are parts. Wait till the 2.7L Delta is released. Most parts will fit on the 2.5L Delta for example, intake headers, exhaust, and a couple other things.

Of interest to me.

I want to know what will happen if you put 2.5L Cams on a 2.7L. Interesting to those with new Sonatas?
