Speed Limited XR6?

G'day all.

Anyone have top speed figures for their turbo's?

Wound mine out yesterday and at 5200rpm and 234kph, blow off valve goes off, revs drop...all over. The car was still pulling like a train right up to that point, and would happily keep getting up there again, but unloaded every time I got to that mark.

Are these things supposed 2 b limited in any way, or have I got gremlins?

there speed limited to 230kph. if yours is a ute u really dont wanna go to much faster than that in a ute! with the edit you can get the speed limit raised i believe. the blow off valve goes of because the ecu closes the throttle.

Cheers for that, I figured it would be something like that. Its a bloody shame, there's still heaps of power there, even mostly stock...just have to wait til Santa drops a stage II kit down my chimney I guess.

I have a sedan, I assume you're looking at my profile pic...thats my old XC, I just haven't taken any photo's of the new one yet.

my speed limiter went off at around 235, and in a ute it was quite stable and felt quite safe

Re: Speed Limited XR6?

Yeah have had mine sit on 240 speedo with a mate on his at the same..

Having seen the video of the APS one doing 307 I am not too sure I would want my speed limiter taken off, the temptation would be always there

(of course this was on a closed private road in the NT, blah blah blah)

Re: Speed Limited XR6?

It's not about the stability of the ute- it's about tailshaft vibration. If you go any faster, you'll hit a speed at which the tailshaft resonates and then it'll shake itself apart. Then if you're unfortunate enough to drop the front end, the tray does a pole vault over the cabin...

Re: Speed Limited XR6?

I had mine goin 200 the other day, in the NT, felt pretty stable. Don't really see the need for goin much faster. A 230 -240 km/h cut out is pretty good for a standard car imo
