    I hope you have better brakes and sway bars on that truck....

    I'm afraid to say because some of the guys on here will flog me with an old Ford v-belt, but it was higher than your 130mph :rofl::rofl: ha ha ha

    My speedo was wound around & back past the dead space & pinned on the peg & couldn't get past zero again (that occured @ 5700 rpms & it redlined @ 7100 rpms') so I had to compute the actual mph from RPMs' x gear ratio x tire diameter when I got home.

    edit** Did you do the 130 with those tires you have on in the photo?

    130mph in my 03 silverado. Surprised the A/T's could handle it

    Was running different tires. Clocked mine with GPS. Ilive in the mountains of TN not a lot of flat places here to let it fully wind out.

    Hell, (less) top speed is one of the main reasons I got my truck!

    My last car (Chrysler 300 SRT8) was a beast- Ran out of nerve before I ran out of car at 160 and it was still pulling like a tractor. Rock solid at speed and handled great, but needed something more practical and that wouldn't get me in nearly as much trouble. Hence the trade for the Silverado...

    With that said, I'm guessing they are ECM limited somewhere around 115 from the factory?
