Hey guys,
I just picked up my 05 Yellow SS Friday, I have only had it for 2 days I am in love. Just a question to you guys that have had them for a little while, is there a governor on the engine and if so at what speed does it cut out?
Thanks

there is an engine speed limiter at 6500 but no vehicle speed limiter because of the w rated pirelli tires rated to over 150 mph

there is a rev limiter to keep you from going above the 6500 rpm redline and messing stuff up, however, the car itself is drag limited at 145-150 mph.

Well, I know for a fact it will reach 145.. It picks up pretty decent until then, then it feels like the wind is keeping from doing anything more.

in other words drag resistance = engine power output... or drag limiting
