Dude. If you are a running a 2500 at 99+ you need to check yourself. Get a Camaro or Vette or even a ‘stang.. don’t run a 3/4 cc at those speeds... speaking for one who shares the road with you.

If the epa ever relaxes and we get to delete the emissions stuff again, there are companies that know how to retune the ecm to get a faster speed or delete the limiter altogether.

going significantly faster than other traffic is called, in engineering terms " traffic friction"; is a major cause of catastrophic crashes. My family and I were personally the innocent victims of someone doing that. We all survived, with some medical issues. The person who broadsided us tried to escape my "citizen's arrest". He didn't. The sentencing hearing transcript shows he repeatedly tried to interject that as a result of the brutality of the arrest, he was no longer able to have sexual intercourse. The judge ruled that was not a mitigating issue. We heard later that he was most unhappy with the "treatment" he received from other inmates...…!

Bottom line - when you are off your own property with a motor vehicle, behaving in a responsible manner has many health advantages.....!

Just for the sake of providing additional info, my 2013 was governed at 95mph, I believe. I also just wanted to see what it would do. Was on straight stectch of interstate in day time with no traffic around as I agree do not do such a thing with any other motorist in the vacinity. Truck only had a few thousand miles on at the time on the stock tires so everything was good.

Why do you need to go over 100 mph, or even drive a 100 mph? Do you have a death wish?

All Chevy trucks are governed out at 99mph they've been like that forever. My 05 dirtymax was like that until I got my tuner, a buddy of mines 2000 gmc stops at 99. That's kinda crappy they gonna tell you they've never heard of that when they know🤷🏼‍♂️
