I know a guy who had a '88 Z with a 2.8 L and a 5 spd and no cut off and said he could go like 220 km/h..is that true or was he bull shittin me? Anybody know how fast a 3.1 with a 5 spd and no cut off can go?

Yeah, pretty close. I know the 3.1 can get up to around 140 mph (225 km/hr) with the 5 speed, so I wouldn't think the 2.8 would be far behind

225km/h sounds about right, because when I hit 180km/h im at about 4000RPM, and it starts to redline at 6000 ( Iknow it can go up to 7500RPM, but that engine is not desigend to rev that high)
so its has the potential to go faster than one of friends 5L mustang Cobra, which tops out at 210.

It's too bad a pushrod V6 isn't made to take that kind of abuse, if they were i'm sure our cars could go rediculously fast.
