    Default V6 CDTI top speed?

    Interesting vid of V6 (posted elsewhere,but you may have missed it) doing 245 km-h (152.1 mph).Couldn't say if it were tuned or not and it doesn't appear to be going down hill.

    Who says Veccies don't handle.

    My V6 SRI is much,much better than the Mondeo LX I previously owned anyway.And much more comfortable as well.

    MPH clocks go up to 160,whereas the kph clocks read only up to 245? (I say only!)

    Still,on the down hill bits at least,there's plenty of potential left (and rpm) to take it off the clock.

    do they have a rev limiter ? my Astra 1.9 caterman is limited to 4000 rmp in 6th, = 140 and reaches it easily on the flat. To be honest I would say 150 would be possible if it wasnt limited. Anyone know if it can be removed on tech 2 ?

    Not sure if the 3.0 has a limiter (video would suggest not).I believe that the limiter can be removed on tech 2 and also by remapping on the 1.9.

    they don't remove the limiter, they just raise the point that it cuts in at..
