The XR6 auto is supposed to be good for about 230km/h, so I would guess a 'mont wagon would do 215-220 - with the speed limiter removed. WARNING: DO NOT REMOVE SPEED LIMITER. Datamine has a thread on here somewhere showing what happens when you do :shock: His blew up on a dyno - what a mess. Dropping the front end of your driveshaft at 200 km/h on the road/track? I can't imagine that being good for your health. :(
