i heard this as well but find it hard to believe...the earliest i've worked with is the 98.......just drive till you either hit it...or dont
lol maybe i will. i dont think there is one though, cus ive hit 120 mph. and most cars with limiters will stop you before 120

i dunno...euro cars have 155 limiters...but if you get to 130 or so its a good bet ur safe... its not a problem unless ur hitting it...so if you never hit it why bother to take it off?
i never said i wanted to take it off. im just curious.

I have a rev limiter on mine for sure. I dont think i have a speed limiter b/c ive gone over 120. I doubt my teg could much faster than that.

had a 95 gsr did 142 on stock engine and didn't run into any speed limiter.
too bad some fucker stole my car and stripped it to the shell :mad

My opinion, I think the best gsr was the 95 gsr. Shit was quick as hell! My 00 gsr lags like a bitch!

Why does this question come up like once a month? And why does no one seem to actually know the right answer?

NO INTEGRA sold in the US has a speed limiter at all. The JDM ones do. Simple as that. Even RSX's don't have speed limiters here. Oh so your car stops pulling at 120, 130, 140, whatever? It's called aerodynamic drag combined with a tiny engine. Just because it doesn't just keep accelerating until you hit warp speed doesn't mean it has a speed limiter.

Rev limiters are a completely separate thing and probably every single production car since most of us were born has one.

My 95 GSR has a rev limiter. So I would assume that once I hit redline in 5th gear the rev limiter would kick in. I have not been able to see if it will do it, but I'm guessing it would. But I know for a fact my GSR has a rev limiter, it use to hit it in first gear when I first got the car (once or twice) and wasn't use to the quickness over my old 98 EX Civic.

yeah just about every honda ever made has a rev limiter. thats not a speed limiter tho.

I swapped a B16a1 and it pegs at 125, but it gets there quick. Would love to see what the car could do.. My old D16Z6 would get me to 135....

Of course it has a rev limiter.

And guaranteed your car will NOT reach the rev limit in 5th unless you have a lot of mods. That would be like ~155-160mph. VERY few stock cars' top speeds are limited by gearing/rev limiter. Some cars can't even pull to the end of their 2nd-to-top gears, like the Corvette and Viper can't pull to the end of 5th out of 6th gears. Aero drag... it's HUGE at high speeds.
