100 MPH Series 2.25l?

Anyone seen an 88 that goes 100mph with a 2.25l motor?

4100 rpm with an overdrive..... I wonder how these guys got a 100% eBay rating with crapola claims. Let's see a dyno sheet.

I've hit 85mph in my 109 twice without headers or an upgraded cam. Once downhill in Vermont, the next was straight and flat Kansas with a tail wind. By no means is it a regular thing, and revving the engine that high for extended periods of time is going to significantly shorten the life of the engine. Tim Smith had an ACR built 2.25 in his lightweight and used to be able to hit 90+. It isnt impossible, but there is that expression about polishing a turd...

galvanisednuts on eBay are those dudes out in Washington who have had the 1998 D90 Anniversary truck in pieces for years that they've been unable to sell a piece of because they price everything at $10k or above.

85, sure.... 100 mph requires 63% more power than 85 mph.

I had my 109 up to "H" on the SII speedometer. That is with the Robert Davis Mercruiser 3.0 crossflow engine and Ashcrfot hi-ratio transfer box.

85 MPH in a stock Series truck?

I guess its possible. Though I bet your speedo was less than accurate.

The speedo read zero the whole time.
In Vermont I used a stopwatch between mile-markers and did the math to be a hair over 83 mph. In kansas my friend was behind me in his jeep using it's speedo. I didn't believe it either.
