I was just wandering if any of you guys knew the top speed of a 1986 TPI with Iron Block and heads L98 motor. Thanks oh yeh I dont know if it makes a difference but it is a 4+3 Stick shift.

I guess it would redline before that? What do you think a '73 might be able to do - automatic?

I am not sure, but normally you will have 190 hp on the rearwheels........lets say 149 mph on the speedo.:bu

You did not mention the rear differential ratio, that will play a major role.

If it will not do 150 something is wrong.

I took a well driven one across a field spinning at 145 once, and it still had a little RPM left... :)
