Yes, I believe it is electronically governed at 110 mph similar to the Saturn Ion, which it shares engine/transmission/basic platform with.

I have an 07 LS coupe, 5 speed. It gets just past 110 then governor kicks in (speedo reads like 112)

(I am not quite sure about the auto's, but...) I have the SS/SC 5-speed, and I have had it (on more than one occasion) at ~150 mph. The fastest I have had it is 155 mph, with a tail wind. But otherwise it is 151 mph, gov. limited at 5750 rpms.

not sure but i have gotten an 05 ls up to 105. I must say that it handled pretty well to. it felt really smooth, and it didnt feel like i was going to die. but if i would have hit anything (pothole, mouse, ant *lol*) i am pretty sure i would have died. lol

I dont have a speed limiter, thank you Trifecta tuning! On the dyno with calculations I maxed out at 178 mph. And by calculations they actually add in effects like wind speed and road resistance. 2005 Cobalt SS/SC Stage WTF

160 sounds high. I ran against a 2009 SS turbo yesterday with my motorcycle. I just stayed with him to see what it would do. He pulled fairly quickly to 130 and then edged up to 140 and it was over. I continued to 150 and he was fading in my mirrors. My speedo has been checked against my gps so I know it is accurate.

you hit 150 on that cruiser? are you saying your speedo is accurate at that speed cause i call BS! speedo on a bike at that speed has a flux at 10% roughly. so if your gps is accurate at 85 then ok but it doesnt work at that speed. that takes a little balls. i hit 180 on my gixxer and pulled it back. that speed is ridic
