Various car magazines have found the top speed in the stock car to to be about 140-143MPH. I have a K&N filter and cat-back exhaust, and have reached 138 on the speedo and the car was still accelerating, though slowly, before I had to slow down. So, those numbers are totally plausible. But it is really hard to safely find the top speed, in my opinion. Even at Watkins Glen, which is one of the fastest road course, I could only hit 115 at the back straight. Really need an oval to find the top speed safely.

The was a lane closed on the turnpike here in FL and it seemed like every trooper in the state was at the construction site. After I passed it, I was the lone car on the road. I hit a 137-139 MPH before encountering other cars. My WRX is completely stock.

I had mine down to the bottom of the h in miles per hour. I'm assuming it was around 145 or so. Mine is stock except for silencer mod, K&N air filter and 3a racing muffler. The only problem I had was that the windows started to suck outward and let air in the cabin, kinda scary at that speed. I was waiting for the windows to rip out.
