    My 93 cpi has been drivin as fast as 117 at 115 it disables the gas untill it goes back down to 110:(
    It's probably a good thing for normal driving. Once the jet stage 2 chip is installed i'll probably kill myself.

    I have a 91 with a 110 MPH speedo and I've pegged it before, and the RPM kept going up. *shrugs*

    From what I've seen on mine (4.3L TBI) there is no limiter, the engine just simply runs out of guts to go past a certain speed, Im not sure what that speed is (i have a 110MPH dash), but im guessing its around 115.

    yeah, the tbi 4.3's don't have limiters, atleast mine don't, but im suprised how quick like if u let the gears wrap out, then let it slow down for like 5-10 seconds then gas it again, they will jump right back up there, very suprising

    my 89 4x4 had the limiter at 109, and this seems to be a common gm limit point (my moms 98 century, as well as my friends 96 bonnevile have it there).

    on a good hill it would hit almost 120
