Well I'm not sure if this thread was ever made, but I'm curious to see how fast people have gone in there G5s.
The fastest I have ever went in my G5 was 186Km/h, had to slow down because i was approaching the cars ahead of me pretty quickly!!

i only hit 112

Chris
10-25-2008, 09:29 PM
I think maybe 95 but the cops around here as tough on speeding. I'd have to get out to a back country road to go faster than that.

195km/h so far on stock motor could have went a bit faster though

ok, how in the blue hell are you guys going so fast, i have G5 SE with InJen CAI and i get to about 180 and she wont go any faster, governor i think. You have Stock and went 195...Hmmmm?

I don't get what's so hard to believe about that. I have a stock (completely) base model, and I've had it at 190kph on flat ground, and it still had more in it. Want a picture to prove it?

10-26-2008, 02:52 PM
In my Tiburon (Thank God no Governor) I have gotten upto 125 but had to shut down due to traffic. My car can reach upto 145MPH. Once I get my reflash, hope that can go upto 160+MPH, but really, will never go that fast. No need.

jestin90
10-26-2008, 03:42 PM
190 km/h with a dirty cross-wind, so if i had more room, i could probly go 200. I have a stock 2009 G5 SE

singh
10-26-2008, 10:43 PM
damnit... all these other g5's going faster then me... and with stock.. lameeee... i wanna take my damn governor out and put in the tuner chip.... i have headers and cold air intake..

karnivor
10-26-2008, 10:44 PM
headers arent doing much with the stock exhaust behind it

LayLah The G5
10-26-2008, 10:53 PM
CAI's Exhaust, and headers wont do ANYTHING to your top speed, unless your govoner is taken off.

With your govoner still on, theres no way you can get past it.

singh
10-26-2008, 11:01 PM
yeah i know, but i have noticed a differance in pick up and power.. alot more off the line, and im getting a custom exhaust put in hopefully this week for DIRT cheap.. for those of you in edmonton and area PM me for hook ups on exhaust and security/starter combo.. good ones too... and realistically how often am i EVER gonna hit top speed unless on a track?? i don't even wanna dare to go past 140 again on city streets.. i already have a frickin court date for going 160 in my mom's grand am on the whitemud last year... one more speeding ticket and i'll loose my license...

I think the fastest I've gone is 140km/h. On a highway, going with the flow of traffic. ;)

alex264sho

10-27-2008, 06:58 AM
I'll admit it: I'm not much of a racer at all. The only reason I was okay with doing 140km/h was cause everyone else was. ;) Cops can't really pull over 50+ cars at once. ;)

It's true. I've seen up to 5 people get pulled over on a city street. Highways, though, could be a bit different. ;)

Definitely. That's the best way they nab you on the highway.

I guess the only way they could pull over a shitload of people is if there were a shitload of cops. ;)

well, they may not be able to pull all of you over, but they still could pull one of you over. i've been that one car before. when i was in high school, i was going with the flow of traffic and traffic was going about 20 over. of all the cars on the road, i ended up getting pulled over, so don't think you're invincible just because you're going with the flow ;-)

Well, if I'm ever in that scenario, I hope there'll be a vette or a Beamer around to distract the cops. :lol:

I haven't had mine over 100. seems like everytime i get to thinking about it, i see a cop. best not to chance it, ya know? plus...i dont have a bunch of mods, so it wouldnt probably go that fast anyhow.

Nighthawk243

Some states do massive speed traps. Usually there is one officer doing the clocking, and a whole fleet of intercept vehicles to pull over.

Thats freaking fast man, vision gets blurry, but you wanna go more. I wanted to take mine to the limit but i ran out of room. I did that when we didn't have a street racing charge in Ontario, Canada. If caught going 50km/h over your car will be seized for a week, license suspended for a week, maximum charge of $10, 000, and of course a court date.

The governor can be removed by using HP tuners or Trifeca raise it to a higher level or turn it off completely. I think the Tech II at dealerships can also do this, but most dealerships don't like to do this.

Before you remove your governor, make sure that your tires can handle 140MPH (Although you won't ever hit that high due to lack of power, its good insurance). If you have the stock tires on, but no governor, you can easily overstress your tires if you go above its max speed rating.

i was bored and i don't have work tomm, so i went for a boot around the henday.. lol heres the link to the vid i made.. i hit 180km/hr... and right when i turned off the highway i see 3-4 cop cars waiting with there lights flashing about 500meters ahead.. not sure if it was for me or not.. i didn't see any other cars expect cop cars.... lucky me i guess...

67?!?! and you're saying that's fast??? what are the highway speed limits where you live? the speed limit on the freeway here is 70 - and most people go at least 75. if you go 67 around here, you're liable to get run down.

The speed govenor is determined by the tires that come factory on the car. So, Cobalt SS S/C would top out at 130 MPH. G5 GT and Cobalt SS N/A 118 MPH. Base Cobalt/G5 would be near 114 MPH

You can have this govenor removed/increased by a dealership if you have connections or access to Tech2, you need to have it programmed with Tech2, the scan tool used by GM.

I think the fastest I've gone is 140km/h. On a highway, going with the flow of traffic. ;)

Exactly the same here! But that's not often,

I usually go 110km/h-130km/h... yes Km/h, not Mph

If you do get your gov removed, just remember to watch your speed. Try not to exceed the rated speed on your tires unless you want to have some problems.

I know I have to keep the G5 at no higher than 100mph when I have the Blizzak's on.

No. Removing the speed limiter isn't illegal. The only reason it is there is to keep you from overstressing the OEM tires.

What is illegal, however, is exceeding the speed limit, which can be done easily, with or without the electronic limiter. TBH, you're going to get nailed with reckless driving reguardless of the fact that you're doing 110 (Max stock limiter on the 2.2) or 130MPH (Unrestricted 2.2L Estimated)

i havent been over 95 in a long long time. there was a period where i was a speed demon and i would do a high speed pull whenever there was no traffic on the freeway. every time i would try to beat my record. 104 108 114 118 then 120 and then 123 ha ha. thats not including the pulls inbetween, that's just the sequence of my records.

im out of that phase, but now im in the 1-2 pull phase. ha ha when will it end.

but seriously, when i think about how fast ive been, i realize how much trouble i could have been in and how bad i could have hurt someone, including myself. worst sentence ever lol.

I may have to research this better (I just know very basics).
But every tire has a speed rating (speed limit) after exceeding which,there's a chance that said tire will go kaboomska. Imagine that happening on a highway?

The Governor is set for the STOCK OEM tires. Of course if you get tires that are lower rated, you can over speed them if you don't pay attention.

For example, my Conti's are rated for 112MPH, but my Bridgestone Blizzak Revo1's are only rated for 100MPH.

Hence why I watch my speed more in the winter since I am likely to overstress my tires if I hit triple digits since I don't have that limiter set to prevent me from overstressing the tires.

For those who have the governor removed, they must make sure they don't exceed their tires speed rating. Therefore, when removing the governor, the owner should have tires that have a rating higher than the car is physically capable of.

i dont understand this...stock the car is governed to like 170kmh is it not?

I think in the base model G5 the governor kicks in at 170, when my dad had his sunfire it was governed at 170.

^140+ is your car retuned for that speed? I thought the stock GT's do only 130? Also what tires you have?

Careful what you say about your stock 2.4 being faster than a v6, buddy....I know a lot of people that would get real butthurt about that.

Yes I have an engine/tranny tune from Trifecta Performance.

My tires are Nexen N3000...speed rating is Y(300KM/h)


That's pretty impressive for a 2.2 with only I/H/E.

I had a nice long stretch of HW at 2 in the morning.

Just a thought, but WHY would I make it up? In all seriousness, what the fuck would be the point of making something like that up??

With enough road, a stock 2.2 with no governer would likely get close to 220 too...my damn 2002 corolla ce could get 180km/h stock...
