Maxx,

I know my car pretty well and it may go ~180 now but not when it was stock. Aerodynamic drag increases exponentially and at 180 miles per hour for a car really not designed for that type of velocity, it a tremendous strain and requires oodles of ponies.

The first time I drove my turbo at California speedway and opened it up I was flying. The one thing that you wont realize until you do it is the drag...Wind noise inside with the windows up and sun roof closed was loud like a tornado. Sound ominous and scary like a fender my come off or something. SPOOKY!

Bob
