short and simple question. Do EF's have speed limiters or do they just run out of grunt at 180km?

Yes, they are speed limited. A stock EF 4L will stop producing power before 180km (as seen on a dyno in 4th).

Close. A stock EF, Auto and 3.08 s/s winds out at 213km/h (or at least mine did)

Standard, they are limited to 180, but it is easy to get around. I was young and stupid, and removed the limiter om my EF. I have since obtained some common sense, and have re-installed the limiters on that EF. If you try it, you will feel it just back off at 180. The ED's that were speed limited are quite violent when they hit the limiter.

I'd say my 5spd EF would run out to 250 pretty easy - it pulls in 5th from 100 to 180 without trying, and it sits on bout 3500 on the limiter.
