RC45 thanks, where did you find that calculator?
I don't know where RC got it but it's in the shop manual.

A few months ago I was merging onto Rt. 295 in NJ. I topped out in 3rd gear at 119 mph. When I really get on it I only pay attention to the HUD rather than the dashboard readouts. I know the rpms were up there...enough to see the SHIFT indicator come up on the HUD.

I have a '02 but reading above it's the same gearing as the '01. I bought the car used (only 500 miles) so I don't know if the gears were changed. The front tires were changed to 265/35/18's but I don't think the front tires are part of the speedometer sensors.

Any thoughts on how I hit 119 in 3rd when the calculator says 103 is the max?

The previous owner swapped gears and threw in that ever popular 2.75 rear axle. :roll:
