Ive been driving my car lately in both cold and hot temperatures and ive found that it gets to around 80km/h fairly quick with foot flat on the pedal. However ive noticed it starts to slow up as it reaches around 100km/h.
Im not to sure if this is just my car or if others have this... just wondering if there is anyway to sort of pull some more power out of the car?

So far all i have is a pod filter (aware that it doesnt really affect power) was done as a project.
And will be installing extractors,cat and 2.5" exhaust in the next few days.
After that im assuming a new cam will do the trick..?

what kind of car is it?

depends what type of cam u get..my cam is a fairly large one, so i might have actually slowed my acceleration to about 25km/h but after that it pulls hard..especially 80-140
