these speed limit threads (there have been many) never seem to get a straight answer. Some claim no speed limiter, others with the same car might claim a 180/210/2220 limit.

Manuals are not limited as much as autos as the auto apparently has a weak output shaft which contributes to driveshaft vibrations. Apparently all fairlanes, wagons and utes were limited to 180 regardless as to model. Early e-series often have no limiters.

Anyway thats kind of what Ive picked up from these threads (now I wait for others to say otherwise). The only thing I can say for sure is that my EF does not have a limiter.

Auto tickford is limited at 180.. only the cops got the 210, and manuals didn't get a limiter.


Cheers
