What is the top speed of a 1989 Camaro?
In Top Speeds
It depends on what engine is in it, what gears is in it etc... theres too many factors

Answer . You were obviously in the process of wetting your pants when you looked at the speedometer, but not everyone is a good driver. To get to your answer, your car tops out at 115 Mph.. Answer . Although the top speed is set to about 110-115 Mph, it's easy to disconnect the VSS (Vehicle S…peed Sensor) from the ECM. The top speed will then rise signifficantly. It should then be capable of doin' 160+ MPH :). it also depends on your final drive gear. the lower the number the higher your top speed ect. 3.73 will have a higher top speed than 4.11. and i dont mean to burst your bubble but i highly dought that you can reach 160 plus b/c your engine only has about 170 horse power. and i researched that. if is the ho version then you have about 230 horsepower and even then i still dont think that you would be able to exceed 160.. though its only rated at 170 bhp it has 255 ft-lbs of torque it could probably make it . Answer . I have a 91 z28 5 speed 305 rated at 230hp. The only aftermarket part is a Flowmaster muffler and I've topped it out at 240km/h which is very close to 150mph. I don't think I'll do that again though, the road gets pretty rough at that speed. I believe my final drive gear is lower than even the 3.73 listed above. -- just re-read your question and see that you have an RS, I do believe your engine should be 170hp. ( Full Answer )
Although the 1991 Camaro rs has the potential to be a vrey fast car,the speed is limited to 110 mph by means of a fuel shut off chip located in the dashboard. Answer i have replaced the stock chip(extremely easy to do)with a chip from eBay which removes the speed limiter.that let me hit 145 on a… flat freeway with two over weight passengers and a bunch of camping gear.probably about 500 extra pounds.i then replaced the stock manifolds with pace setter shorty headers and a high flow y-pipe.i welded a Flowmaster super 40 series muffler directly to the end of the y-pipe(sounds amazing).i removed all stock emissions and topped it with a k&n filter.i replaced the stock speedomiter with an aftermarket 220 mph speedo and changed the speedo gear to match my 18" panthers.after all that my tranny went out so i bought a monster 700r4 off eBay with a 2200 stall.the speedo was checked for accuracy and i went out for a top speed run.it reached 165 real quick and slowly climbed to 175 and was done.i have the 305 ci v-8 and tbi. so for almost $3000 i gained 65 mph on the top end. it was pretty impressive for an all stock block and rear end.PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS ON THE STREET,ITS NOT SMART AND I SHOULD SMACK MYSELF FOR DOIN IT. Answer I have a completely stock 5.0L 305 v8 91 Camaro R/S, haven't done anything to it other than regular tune ups. Couldn't tell you the exact top speed cause the speedometer doesn't go high enough but there is no fuel shut off in mine. I've had the needle completely buried on many occasions and it was still gaining speed. I'd say at least 130mph but could more ( Full Answer )
Answer . you will have to be more specific as to what kind of camaro and engine before you will be able to get an accurate answer. if it helps i have a 96 rs with a 3.8 litre v6 and my bhp is 200 and 225lb/tq with a 1/4 mile time of mid 15's stock. dont know my top speed but have been in excess …of 100 mph but not by much. i would estimate the 0-60 time to be around 7sec or so but not sure.

Answer . I honestly dont know how many were made but i own a 89 camaro with t-tops sorry I wasnt much help on your question tho.\n. \nI currently own an '89 camaro with T-tops and know that there was a production of a mere 184,000 camaro's in all and about maybe about 15,000 T-Top production ca…rs were made that year.

you do not need to remove the governor off the camaro because the 89's do not have them. they didn't start puting governors on cars until 96.
Depends on your motor condition, transmission type, wheel size, ect. Its hard to tell you unless you actually go and do it, I've seen some hit 120mph, others 145Mph. Like i said it depends on your car.
There are multiple places to look. There should be a sticker on theevaporator box under the hood on the firewall. Should see a largeR-12. This may also be on the AC compressor itself. It will tellyou the capacity in Pounds. Also check the manual, or a repairmanual.
Answer . from what i know the v6 models had no limiter only the v8 models i take my 2002 to 125 without a problem no limit to it i'e had the v8's stall out at 100 though
The starter is up near the front of the transmission. On my 93, it's on the passenger side. It's right next the the flywheel. You can't miss it.
If it has the Throttle body injection 305 it is set at 115MPH. If it has either of the Tuned Port Injection motors there is no governer to limit speed.
Approximately 160mph, but depending on the options the car was ordered with there may be a speed limiter that will cut power at a lower speed.
Disconnect neagative battery cable . Remove the air cleaner,tagging all hoses as they are removed . Drain cooling system until level is below the thermostat . Disconnect the upper radiator hoses from the thermostat housing . Remove the thermostat housing bolts and separate the housing from the e…ngine.On some models the alternator mounting bracket will have to be disconnected first . Lift housing off and remove the thermostat ( Full Answer )
Very simple, take out the 21 scews on the bottom of the dash pading and the panel will lift off.
I happen to own one of these Beasts and I was wondering the same thing. Not having a place to actually try it out, I did a little math calculation. The speedometer on this car goes up to 145. The engine redline is 5500. Assuming your rear end gears are the same as mine, the answer is the car will re…ach 145 mph at 5500 rpm. If your rear end gears have been changed, or the engine modified for higher rpm's, your Z-28 could have a higher or lower top end depending on what changes you may have made. And if you are wondering if the factory TPI rollercam 305 actually has enough power to get the car to that speed, then my answer would have to be, OHHH YEEAAHHH!!! ( Full Answer )
On the intake manifold, right behind the water neck housing for the top radiator hose.
Hi, visit www.thirdgen.org/cd_oct_1984_iroc_camaro_z28. Details of speed etc for 84 camaro. should not differ much.. My 84 z28 with a 305HO topped at 136, and my 91 rs with a tbi 305 topped at 131.. Both had a 5spd.
about 7 maybe 8, youd need a transmission or a big hill to go any faster.
The top speed of a 1995 z28 depends on the rating of the factory tires. If your speedo reads 240kph your car came with z-rated tires and no speed limiter. If your speedo reads 180kph your car came with lower speed rated tires and a limiter that shuts you down @ 180kph. Mechanically the cars are no d…ifferent. GM states "for prolonged driving at over 180 kph inflate tires to 35psi". ( Full Answer )
Probably does not have a speed sensor. It would have a speedometer cable that goes from the back of the speedometer, through the firewall, underneath the car, and into the transmission.
I personally have broke the speedometer because I was going so fast, but I was going downhill.
The fastest I've gotten my 2010 2LT RS is 152 MPH on open highway before I had to slow to meet traffic. This was confirmed by the Dealer who sold me my Camaro who rode beside me during the run. Good news is that the throttle was still pushing up (albeit slowly at that point) before I let off of it. …I've heard from multiple owners in my area that they've gotten up to 151 before likewise having to slow for traffic. According to Car and Driver, the 2010 Camaro LT beat out the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe in top speed, with a government limit of 157 MPH. Which means, if you read below, that the V6 Camaro can beat out both the 2010 Challenger and the 2010 Mustang V8 models. The stats for the powertrain on the V6 2010 Camaro LT can be viewed here: http://www.caranddriver.com/var/ezflow_site/storage/original/application/d8522636ea1a5ac0faf82796cb26bc10.pdf The speedometer goes up to 160 MPH in the V6 model. According to Car and Driver, the 2010 Camaro SS has a government limit of 155 according to the manufacturer's claim, beating out the 141 on the Dodge Challenger R/T and the 149 MPH managed by the 2010 Ford Mustang GT. These stats can be viewed here: http://www.caranddriver.com/var/ezflow_site/storage/original/application/114d79cf1e48eb897dd0ee650bbb926b.pdf The speedometer in the 2010 Camaro SS (V8 model) goes up to 180, personally observed in a test drive. A: the base model 1998 to 2000 camaro with the v6 is much slower. its rev limiter kicks in at 110mph to 115mph. It makes up for that with its light weight and consistantly powerful gears. this makes it fun to drive. ( Full Answer )
The cops around here won't let me find out. I did try though. btw, anyone know a good lawyer? These guys have no sense of humor.
0 to 60 mph 6.5 sec 1/4 mi (E.T.) 14.9 sec I have gotten my 1994 camaro with the only mod being a cold air intake up to 233km/h which is 145mph and the top speed was noted with a gps No difference between a 95 and 94 so: When I was stock with CAI, I was able to pull 13.93 as my best in an Aut…o with 3.23 gears @328 elevation. After cam, headers, 1.6RR, Catback, CAI, and a 3600 stall I had a best of 12.74 at same elevation. Top speed I hit 160mph verified by GPS (when stock). Never tried with my mods. Honestly an 87-92 Iroc with a 305 was capable of 140..... ( Full Answer )
The 2010 Camaro SS is electronically limited to 155mph. Attempting to accelerate beyond that will cause the engine computer to shut off the fuel supply. The L99 and LS3 engines used in the automatic and manual transmission versions of this car (respectively) are already known entities, and it shoul…d be relatively simple for an experienced performance tuner to adjust or bypass this limit. In that context, the actual top speed achievable by these vehicles is not yet known. Also, the high-speed aerodynamics of the fifth-generation Camaro have not yet been explored by the general public. It is possible that the Camaro will exhibit unfavorable dynamics (e.g. front-end lift) at such high speeds, which would make going faster impractical without aerodynamic modifications. I just read in Popular Mechanics that the author of the article had his stock SS camaro tuned so that the limiter was disabled. In the salt flats, he recorded a top speed of 174 mph. ( Full Answer )
A 1989 Chevrolet Caprice had low gearing, and an overdrive that would put the cars RPM at highway speeds very low. This being said I believe with enough time and a good drivetrain, a top speed of 140-150 mph is possible. Make sure for god sake that the road is straight, not the best handling vehicle…. ( Full Answer )
Computer has a max RPM programed into it, which will get you to +/- 124...
What ground are you talking about, main ground is located on battery to chasey or to engine. Other wise there are many grounds on this vehicle.
my friend had a modded '87 cr125 clocked at 105, so im gonan guess 80mph,stock, and modded with the filters and exhaust, im gonna say 90.
It depends on the gear ratio and rear tires (automatics had 3.42 and Manuals had 3.73's) But as an example. My 1979 Z28 with 600cfm carb and cheap headers and the stock 3.42's in the rear buried the speedo at 130mph and the rpms were still climbing.
somewhere right around 115, but it's limited by the computer, if you re-tune it you might get 125 if you're reallllllly lucky. hope this helps!. If you wanna go fast just buy a cheap v8 camaro... don't waste your money putting it into the v6 trust me I learned the hard way...
a 350 4 speed can get to about 135 to 145 a 3 speed automatic can hit 135. Ok?That previous answer is very wrong. Well the 79 Z28 350 made only 175hp. In a four speed manuel it will do just over 120mph pushing it hard. With an auto will go no more than 115mph. This engine was a low reving and det…uned and the trans was geared tight to make the best of its low power, not good for a top speed run. This was not a good year for the stock Camaro.

Around 110-115 MPH ^^^ Not recomended, these OLD cars need TLC dont destroy ur block please keep it at the speed limit, its a 23 year old car. ^^^ITS ACTUALLY a 5.1l engine (widly called a 5.0)...if you would really like to kno it is about 110-115 any faster and you will feel the governor kick… in and slow you down. (I have a 92 RS 5.0 and 3rd Gen enthusiast) You can remove the governor by swapping out your chip in your ECU for a performance chip. (to the post above, the 305 5.0 is a toss away engine) Blow that and get urself a brand new Crate 350. Good Luck :) ( Full Answer )
my 1997 with the 2.0 mpfi tops out at 138 on flat ground. exhaust mod and cold air intake. nothing else.
It does not have one, the speed is controlled by a the ECU or computer brain. Replace that with another and you should be able to push 160 all stock depending on your tranny.
189kph me and my friend got his 2 liter up to 140, no joke.....okay on jack stands lol. but then the tires were about to get pulled off, just make sure you have high speed tire ratings lol
Most magazines will say 155. Though this was just a number they put down, the 96-97 Z28 can hit 165 and even alittle bit more.
If you have the LU5 V8 you could do possibly up to 130MPH, I had a '86 5.0 and I got it up to 122, me with 2 other bodies in it. Still had room to go, but the weight was preventing its top.

If we are referring to factory built, original equipment cars, two 1992 RS camaro's were recorded doing a top speed of over 150mph by the Michigan State police during police car testing. The vehicles in the test were optioned with the B4C "special service package" which included either a 5.0 liter T…PI V8 with a five speed manual transmission or the 5.7 liter TPI automatic transmission. Both drivetrains were available in the civilian Z28 version and likely were capable of doing the same speeds in those cars. The automatic edged out the manual by only a couple of MPH topping out at I believe 155. For non-stock vehicles, there have been a few vehicles built to hit the 200 MPH range with major drivetrain modifications...let's not try any of this on a public highway though, please....

Would a 1977 350 Chevy engine fit into an 1989 camaro with a 5 speed and bolt up to everything with no problems?
No. There are always problems with engine swaps. It depends on how much you are willing to take on. However, this would be a relatively easy swap.
I have a 1991 z28 350 car and installed 5 speed in it. I had a friend stay with me on a gsxr 1000 and we maintained and steady speed by his speedo of 159 mph!! All stock camaro except tranny!!
157 With the 350 140 with the 305 (TPI) Assume the speeds will be less depending on age of the car and if the motor is bone stock
Out of ALL of the Camaro's made in the world the 1989 Camaro is the most girly of the models. It is weak and not good. People may think Camaro's pick up ladies I'm sure the 1989 Camaro picks up guys!
if you have the know how you can put a part from any car into any other car. but for the average person and for the sake of dumbing this down a bit (no offence intended) no it will not, these to camaros are of different generations. if you are looking for parts for an 89 camaro your best bet is to l…ook for parts from one between the years of 82-92 ( Full Answer )
there were no camaros made in 2007 so there isnt a top speed for it
It's Limited to 155mph, but modern mechanics did an article about them taking it up to the salt flats and taking the limiter off, it managed 175mph
Around 130-135 MPH top speed, it could have either the base 305 V8 (170 hp) or the 305 H.O. V8 (190 hp)
\n. Depends on what engine, transmission and gearing the car has, but they could reach top speeds of 130-135 MPH.
