Question What is my top speed

I just bought a 1997 mustang gt and I was wondering what was the top speed for this car? The car also has 45z 17 inch wheels(i thought they only came on the cobra)

thanks

I have a 98gt when it had all the bolts on except the heads it went 160.It was lowered and had 355 gears.If it is stock and has stock 273 gear you will only go 130 and that is in 4th,5th wont pull at all.160 was with the car at 4900rpm with the 245/45/17 tires and in 5th(.63)Killed a guy I worked with,his vette a 95 could not hang.We were side by side till 150 then BYE BYE.

I have a 97 GT, and Ive gone 135 before. Had to let off cause I was running out of road, but im sure it had atleast another 5mph left in her. I was in 5th too.

Mine when stock with 245/45 Z got up to 147. It seemed llike it took forever but if you have enough room I am sure you could get it all the way.
