Fast enough to kill or slow enough to enjoy.
Take your pick.

I am assuming you purchased the T5 engine. If you did, then the answer is 150mph.

Assuming its a high pressure turbo and your talking 1/4 mile expect high 14s with a 100 trap. If your talking max 150 stock but with the limiter removed they will climb up to 155-160. Turbo swap and some minor work they will top out about 165-170 due to drag
