    most of JDM cars are exported with max speed locked/maximized at 180KHP... just a safety factor...like all stock twinturbo rx7's,nissan 300zx,even my mark2 turbo got max speed of 180KPH..this speed lock can be removed with Ecu upgrade...

    JDM has a legal limit, it cannot exceed 180 regardless of the engine size. The speed limit can be removed by tampering with the governor and the onboard computer. 'Ricers'/racers in the JDM do that on a regular basis.

    Actually, notice this new trend, cars now have smaller bonnets? Like the new City or Civic 2006. Their bonnets are pretty small, this is another JDM requirement for pedestrian saftey.

    @jaan
    what you are talking about relates to the shorter gearing which will give you faster acceleration and slower top speed. High gearing will give you higher top speed and slower acceleration. But JDM cars have non of this it is just a speed governer electronically limited. if you take it off the governer it will continue the same acceleration to any other domestic car.

    @BigWack
    if by regions you meean different countries yes they do have different specs like USDM have miles and Canada has Kmh, Uk miles and Gulf kmh.

    Still no solid answer.. @jaan u seem right, but still it doesnt make sense if a civic ovetakes an accord after 180!! may it be even a minute later on some motorway etc.. but the accord owner will like to throw it in trash after that. By the way pls tell what is JDM

    And for those posting American speedometeres, the USDM doesn't care for capping the speed like that, the JDM is all about safety as of lately. Some of the accidents in Japan are pretty bad, those guys are terrible drivers. Oh yeah but they can park cars really well, it's the driving they suck at.

    who went to 180km/h on civic civic never cross 175km/h
    180 is enough
    top speed can be calculated by integration rpm with respect to gear ratio minus any resistence forces applied

    Its actually to do with the Japanese transport ministry's power cap placed on all japanese vehicles. Vehicles are divided into categories with corresponding dimensional and power restrictions. Like the smaller vehicles called the kei(japanese for lightweight) class vehicles (Mira, Cuppacino, Beat etc.)that wear Yellow registrations instead of the typical white have a power rstrcition of 750cc. The next or midsized category is the joyousha which covers your usual vehicles. The power cap for any vehicle produced on japanese soil is 280ps/hp(206kw). Look up any JDM vehicle spec and they'll all be same from a 4G63 CT9A Evo to a BNR34 GT-R to a G50 V12 Century. Manufacturers although have and continue to exceed this benchmark but never on paper. The speedo is like mentioned earlier is constituent of the restriction but its NOT ALWAYS limited. The speedo in most cases measure till a 180kph but most vehicles (too many) to name) will accelrate beyond that limit. The 4A on the AE86 wasn't even equipped with a revlimiter. Most countries depending on the road infrastructure will require that vehicle be fitted with speed limiters. Vehicles produced in/for OZ do not have the 180kph display but ARE SPEED limited to 180kph.
