Speeds on interstate 63-65 mph , when I get a whild hair I have run it up to 96 mph only for about 3 miles. see my info for more. Have fun modelAtony tony white Lafayette, LA
96 mph! That's impressive and a bit crazy. Crazy like me...I once held mine at 78 mph for a full tank of gas on a Michigan freeway; that was the speed the left lane was rolling. Other than a full flow oil filter my oil system is stock also....no pressure. I have slowed down since then and typically hold it to keeping up with the slow lane on the freeway.
BTW: I ran that speed with a stock Zenith and "B" intake manifold with the Phaeton's top up. Top up on a Phaeton = pulling a deployed parachute!
Good Day!
