simple question really... anyone how fast can the B&W type 37 go with a pepy 900-turbo engine? approximate RPM's it's turning over at 75 and 85 MPH? can it even reach 130 MPH? anyone know about the primary drives on these units and if anyone makes an upgraded set that will drop the RPM's to a better range for highway speeds?

This is 70mph - obviously and I have another picture (which I can't get off
my phone!! of the same car just past 120 (on a private test track) but with
a few more revs left. So it might be able to do something like 125 ~ 130mph.

well ejenner, the ratios on yours appear to be about equal to if not slightly better than what you get in 5th from a 5 speed with the #6 primary drive set. not too bad at all!

My speedo only goes to 135, and I've hit that with the auto, air conditioner running and all (course it starts to blow hot with those engine revs) down a two-lane road in Georgia in the summer :cheesy:
