Well my 1987 Trans am I had was a 5.0 305 roller motor. 700r4 xmission. and all stock. I had it up to 145 on I-40 going back to Norfolk Va when I was stationed on a ship up there going through North Carolina. I was racing a BMW and everytime I let him catch up I tapped it again and took off but to answer your question at 145 I still had over a quarter of gas pedal left. Hope this helps. Oh it wasnt a GTA either. Howvere my 88 GTA now I have only had up to 125 not fast really compared to how fast I have been in cars.

Re: Top Speed

the 87 TA probably had 2.73 gears, hence the reason you still had pedal left at 145. Must have been one slow bmw lol
