Why is there a difference in the compuer if the motor are exactly the same? my 05 nonRL only hits 100. Can I put a 05 rl compuer in mine? As far as I know the only difference is a suspension pkg and ground effects....

LoL ok, with my intake and exhaust, and the lack of air grabbing ground effects, I'll race you 0-100 anytime. Would be interesting race, somewhere on here someone stated the RL actully is slower times due to GFs. HUmm anyone ever do the run???

The tires are different. The base tires are rated for what....108 or 112. Can't recall.

Default Re: 05 Vue Redline top speed

My Vue is odd. Usually it maxes out at 100mph. However, one day I went to show my friend what it feels like to have a govenor kick in, it reached the 100, slowed down, then took off again. I got it up to about 110 when I decided I was being stupid. So I guess there is a way to get passed the 100 mph max speed, not sure how I did it though.

Down Hill? A few of us have lazy govenors like that. OVB and I both have vues like that. It's kinda hit or miss though, I can't always count on it breaking the limit. i'm 50/50 now, of the four times i've tried, i've broke the limiter twice.

I dont think it was down hill. It felt fairly flat. There may have been a very slight grade...the kind you can hardly notice.

2002 VUE 2.2L
Default Re: 05 Vue Redline top speed

I think a lot of it has to do with how fast you are acelerating when you hit the gov. I don't think I have ever broken it in 5th. I have shifted to 5 over 100, but you have to hit it with some force. If done right, it'll buck hard 2 or 3 times, and then take off wailing like a banshee again.

If you can break through the limiter what is the theory on the top speed with the gear ratios and "redline" of the Vue. What would the top speed be if there was no limiter? Just curious. I have not gone over 85 in my Vue but it sure feels like it could go a LOT faster!

My max is about 110 and still pulling. Thats with the 2004 3.5L V6 AWD. I only did it once and the Vue felt like it had power to spare and was still picking up speed. It was also quite smooth.

Default Re: 05 Vue Redline top speed

I'm convinced that the limiter is set at 125mph. This weekend a black RL Vue passed by me an gave a "lets run" glance. I obliged, and all I ever saw of this guy was tail lights from 5 car lengths. I was doin' 85-90, he was clearly doin' warp speed(120 and above). About that time I said at 95mph was fast enough I'm pulling out, he kept going 7, 8, 9, car lengths. As I approached the Republic of East Point, GA, common sense kicked in and I slowed down to a crawl(E.P.P.D. were revenue sharing again). I'd swear that
Black RL Vue dropped down an inch in height, and was a blurr to anyone lucky
to witness this display of controlled speed!! I was in awe of this guy... who ever he was.

I've seen 105, going down a hill, with the governor holding me back... I have yet to pop the governor, but I've only really tried once and simply ran out of room, and apparently I don't have the technique down just yet.

I would guess low to mid 130s. It might would do a little better with the 4 cyl gearing, since this would allow it to get closer to the peak of the V6's powerband in top gear.

Yea, it's supposed to be true... I've heard about it on here from some preliminary '05 specs.
