Default WRX Top Speed Limits

Ok, Trying to help a friend/local mechanic make sense of his little brothers "tall tales". My friend currently has his brother's 2002 WRX Wagon in his driveway...it runs but smokes badly!

His brother tells him that he had it pinned at 160 MPH and that is when "things" gave out. I told him "no way"! Now, I know that mods may give us the power but I assumed there was a limiter at the infamous "140" I always hear about? Can this be bypassed or can EM remove it? He has told me the vehicle is stock except cosmetics but I have not had a chance to take a look at it.

Help me out with some facts that will help the mechanic who is not all that familiar with subies assist his idiot brother!
