Acura TL Type-S 6MT physical Top speed

If the electronic governor was removed, what is top speed that the transmission could physically achieve?

194mph? 224mph?

Even with a supercharger, ain't no way a TL is ever going to see anywhere near 200 mph unless you drive it off a HUGE cliff.

I guess we'll need to watch the old Charlie Sheen movie Terminal Velocity to find out.

Terminal velocity 125mph?

My Rotrex TL will do 200mph+ with 1000hp.

Even at 149mph @5100rpm in sixth gear it still has a lot more left but the fuel pump cutout will prevent anything >150mph.

While there may well be some pedal left, my bet is if you somehow defeated the speed governor there is little chance of a 3G Type-S getting above 165 on flat ground with no wind.

Hondata allows you to remove the speed governor.

Wing, splitter, and those little aerodynamic bits on the lateral sides of the front bumper should keep it stable at high speeds.
In congruency with a damper system, wheels and tires.

Car was not designed to go that fast. I would not want to be in a TL trying to go 200mph, even with mods.

Id rather be in my TL going fast than my foxbody. It gets a little scary on the top end with bias ply drag tires.

Regardless, still won't get a 3G TL anywhere near 200 mph.

I really doubt a rotrex kit will ever make 1k hp. Itd probably be pretty hard to reach 700whp with a blower. Youre gonna need a turbo and a ton of money to modify the block and internals. But Good luck if that's your goal

You'd need ridiculous amounts of power to get a TL above even 175.
