    Max Speed on ECO 6 speed manual so far?

    I have noticed that at 65 mph, I am at 2,000 RPM. If I equate that out to 4,000 RPM I would be going 130 mph and so on. So at 6,000 RPM it would be 195 mph. Now I know that is stretching it, but was interested in how far anyone has pushed their Cruze.

    I've only taken my lt/rs 6 speed auto to 90-100. I'm not as young as I used to be, I don't go faster than that anymore LOL. Too risky to get a ticket

    127MPH is all she has put out for me. Dont think it can do much more.

    I saw a thread recently about the Eco's top speed and I think it was a little north of 127 mph (132-136 if I remember correctly) however I will not be the guy that verifies it!

    One of the car mags tested the ECO and found a limiter at 130 mph. They were in 4th gear at that speed, so I don't know if 5th or 6th can go faster or if aerodynamic drag will overcome them.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure the speed governor is edited out on a tune(or can be done).

    I got to 110 with my tuned 2011 LTZ. Still had plenty of juice left. Got there pretty seamlessly
