90% of Holdens made in the last 10 years are still on the road. The other 10% made it home

I think it's a realistic top speed. Given a bit more road perhaps the top speed might well have been a bit higher.

220 on mums non chaser auto EF. I don't know about that speed limiter, but it read very CLEARLY 220km/h with the needle slightly bouncing up and down. I did 195 in my 5 speed EF when some dude in a Skyline challenged me. I got creamed.

Both EF's
about 180 before the limiter kicked in

Weird as the Revs dont seem limited, as i can rev up to 6000, but speed is limited at 180

hmmmm ....

190 here before the engine cut out....

200 in the old TX5, and it took awhile to get there, the EL gets to 190 like a dream, but then cuts out...what a bitch
