I was just wondering what speeds you guys and gals can hit in each gear. I have a MHP CAI and 2.25 cat back exhaust. With a hks muffler.

1st=about 28 or so
2nd=60
3rd=85 or so
4th=don't know yet
5th=don't know yet

I was just wondering if that sounded right.

Speedometer needle error is +/- 10%, Tachometer needle error is also +/- 10% so everyone's numbers may vary by quite a bit. It is also hard to tell what your speed is as you bounce off the rev limiter...

Using gear ratio information from the manual speeds as follows

1st=27
2nd=61
3rd=83
4th=109
5th=125 (ECU Limited)


Leave it to Random to Needlessly complicate things.

Thanks for the info guys. This guy tried to tell me he could hit 90 in third gear in an elantra. Do they have different gearing then the tiburon?

1st-35
2nd-60 while hitting rev limiter
3rd-84
4th-about 106 if i remember
5th-im thinking 127
Also, the more power you add, the more your top speed goes up...since its a drag limited speed, not an electronically limited speed. I think awhile back i read a post on fxtreme and one of the guys had his car dyno'ed and i remember something like the rev limiter in 5th hits somewhere in thr 140mph's.

<img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>that is true i think people say the rev limiter is lower than it really is when i was at 124mph i know the car could have gone faster i just simply did not have the power to do so.<img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

did you just lose to an auto 4spd? i think you did...

the fastest i've gone in my car is 109, well at least that is what the cop told me <img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle> i'm pretty sure it can go fast but i can't try again for at least a year or i'll be in deep sh*t. <img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle>



I prefer to take the road less traveled....but now where the hell am I?

Hmm... 1st - 32, 2nd - 61, 3rd - 85, 4th - 108, 5th... stopped pulling at 125. But this was with 2 people in the car, and both windows and sunroof completely open (had about the same aerodynamics of a dumpster).

In my auto it's about 40 in 1st. 65 in second. 100-110mph in third ( I really don't remember, I was kinda looking at the road at that speed) and I've maxed out at 132. Before I had the exhaust my top speed was 127 that I hit for close to 2 hours on the road to Vegas (of course, screwing with a Civic the whole way). The more and more that my tranny screws up, the lower speed I get out of first. Sometimes I'm at about 35, sometimes 45. ???????????
