i've heard that a clear advantage the se has over the ser is the speed limiter on the se-r that cuts the gas at 109? Has anyone else heard this? What's the se's top speed in stock?

The 200SX SE-R's are speed limited to 109, but any 200SX SE-R speed limiter can be taken care of with a G20 ($100-$150) or JWT ($595) ECU. After that, the sky's the limit. But even in stock form, the hp & tq difference will be tough to overcome.

Well, since the 200 SX SE had the 1.6 and the 200 SX SE-R has the 2.0, I can see where there is a disadvantage in having the SE. It would take you a hell of a lot longer to get to 109 mph than the SE-R. :D

Anyhow, your speed limiter should be set at 109 just as the SE-R is and unfortunately you can not use the G20 ECU in your car since it is not a SR20DE.

SE not governed at 109

Well, it's not true that the SE is governed at 109 because tonight I pulled it to 114mph on my way home from work tonight on I-59 following behind a celica. This is the only time I've been able to open it up so it was kinda cool :D

It just...

All it does is cut off fuel once the car hits 109, if you have momentum and say you're going down a hill, you'll continue to gain speed. That's all.

Wel...

I've never taken my car past 100, so I have not positive. I'm just going by what I know.

just a question: does it cut "fuel" or "spark" i would think that if you cut fuel there would be a few moments of an extreme lean condition.
i could be wrong though, it's been known to happen

Yeh, it cuts at 109. But as someone previously said, a Jim Wolf ECU will take that sucker right out.

so the se doesn't have a limiter? i know the spedometer only goes to 120 and has marks to 130 but i think at least on mine there's a little knob that stops the needle there.

Does anyone know a mathematical formula to calculate a theoretical top speed? I've searched through the net only to find a bunch of b.s. formula's that are always off. Especially after checking and re-checking my math. I've got all the info that I would think you need like all the gear ratio's, final drive, etc etc... I just need a formula to figure it out. I don't have a speed limiter in my ride, and I've taken it to near redline in 5th gear before, and I've always wondered how fast I was going. I don't have a speedometer. I was guessing around 140mph with my NX2000 transmission.

Send me your info, and I'll post your results or just send them back to you. I need final drive, gear ratios and tire size.
