    You can disable the speed limiter in the inTune or Trinity...

    The 3.6 doesn't seem to have a limiter because I've pushed it up to 140mph though it didn't feel fast which was a bummer.

    Manufacturer limits CAN have less than obvious reasons. Ford, for example, installed driveshafts in most 2010 and up Mustangs that would shake themselves to death at around 120 MPH. They did that for various reasons such as it was the cheapest way to improve NVH. They put 114 MPH limiters on those cars that could otherwise easily pull well into the 140s. Since Ford kept the reasons secret, people started getting driveshafts thru the floor and other things that shouldn't have drive shafts thru them when they started disabling the governor.

    I'm not saying or suspect Cadillac might have done anything similar but its worth considering. As consumers we don't KNOW at what speeds some parts might start failing. If the factory limits are ~140 it MIGHT mean some parts get marginal above that.

    3.6 is supposedly limited to 152 MPH

    The 4th gen Fbody also had that problem in the LT1 cars. The LS1 cars added aluminum driveshafts to save weight and they corrected the issue at higher speeds.

    Re: I'm pissed 138 mph

    I'm kind of used to going 150 in my old car . At 138 it was getting loud from the wind or noise cancel stuff . Has anyone unplugged those mics and did it help with noise ?

    Arrow You can go faster...



    Can't speak for anyone else but with our calibration cruise control works at 143+

    (On a closed track event of course, and with a head wind)

    Do you have a manual or auto ATS? Would you like to review a TRIFECTA ATS LTG calibration and then report back from your race track? (I can promo you an automatic transmission cal - offer does not apply to manual transmission vehicles at present)

    I am not sure about the ATS but in many lines the road speed limit programmed in is based upon the capability of the originally ordered tires. Prior to the ATS I had a 2008 CTS and those originally ordered with a summer tire package came with a higher limit. I wouldn't be surprised if the AWD models also come with a different set limit.

    My 3.6 had a limiter set at 135 from the factory. But I raised it with my hp tuner. There are tons of limiters on these cars

    Now if only I could get me trans tune figured out lol

    I'm going to post a reminder here. The Cadillac forums don't permit posts about flagrant speed limit violations. But its okay to post about top end runs on a track or private property such as these.

    Re: I'm pissed 138 mph

    Really nice to see Trifecta join the discussions alot more lately. They have alot of overall knowledge on the ats and I welcome whenever a vendor wants to share info. Imo, the more a vendor is involved with this ats community the better chance a member will buy or use their parts. That's one reason diablosport got my business, was because Mike and nyinstaller are always on talking about their own vehicles not just what's for sale from them. My thanks to actively participating vendors, who are not just looking for a dollar but enjoy sharing their ats knowledge.
