120 MPH Club

OK, we all know that this engine has the potential to put out some hardcore power with the right set-up.

So here's the big question: How many of us have gone 120 MPH or more?

Let's hear how fast you've gone, what mods you have, and do you think you can do better?

FYI: Please don't try and take pictures of a maxed out speedo, crazy speeds and taking pictures isn't exactly the smartest combination in the world.

2008 F-350 6.4 CC DRW 4x4 Cowboy Edition 6-speed w/3.73 gears
SCT tuned w/5" DPF/DOC delete going into black 6" Aussie Stacks
Keystone Ram air hood feeding a S&B Cold Air Intake
Ranch Hand front bumper, custom headache rack and bed rails, lots of L.E.D.'s, 15 million candlepower H.I.D. GoLight
Black 22.5" Alcoa Big Rig wheels with 36" tires

The 120 MPH club is great, just make sure you do it on some deserted back road where you can kill yourself without taking anybody else with you.

Dude, it's a top heavy 8,000 lb pick up truck. I don't get the point?
120 really isn't a thrill speed, unless you do it in a totally out of control situation like your truck.

Want to go fast?
Get a Hayabusa.

I'll Chime up FIRST !!! On I-10 200 Miles from Nowhere where the speed limit is 80mph anyhow. I put the LiveWire on to see my speed, and I hit 122 MPH. I was at 3000rpm's, and she had PLENTY left! I only backed off because the tires are only rated for 107mph ..... Did I win something ??? Do I get a prize or a pin or membership card ???

The LiveWire, and the Speedo are almost exact, AND the GPS as well.

I should mention that it didn't feel much different than 85mph .. she was steady as a rock, of course she only had about 15K miles so she was still tight ...

There's been a time or 2 running 120+

Once when slamming an LMM and another when the girl wanted to go fast.

Don't know what the actual speed was, but was down around the 2nd gear marker. Last I looked at the GPS was around 130 mph. I can cruise at 100 mph at 800* and about 6-9 psi of boost
