    governor activates at what speed?

    Today i was driving on the highway at about 10: 30 at night and decided to hit my max speed since the road was empty. I got to about 120-125 and my car started whining like it was gonna blow up. Was that the fuel line about to be cut or was the engine being hurt?

    well all wrxs make a noise at high speeds. Nobody is sure what it is, but it's some part of the body, nothing mechanical

    Shoulda heard my 05 MINI at not even high speeds. Sounds like someone was slowly letting air out of a baloon in your ear.

    I think the speed limiter is around 142mph in the sedan and 147 in the wagon. But mine is stage 2 and they set the limiter at 186mph

    I heard that only automatics have a speed limiter at 140. The manuals are not speed limited, but drag limited to 155. That is what I have heard, but it might be wrong.

    There was a guy not too far from my hometown (southern wisc) that got a ticket for going over 150 mph in his wrx. It was all over the news, high speed chase.

    I thought the topspeed was drag limited at 145 or something.
