if I were at a track rental, swapping filters would have been possible. But it is not something I was in the mood for on the side of a highway.

I held onto the factory filters just in case. But now that I am pretty sure the K&Ns have not hurt performance, I will toss them.

I do not plan on doing exhaust. and I do not think there is really any other bolt ons. So the only gains I have left are the race gas and regular tires

Do the K&N filters add sound? I remember adding a K&M cold ar intake on a older 3 series and it added a great intake roar.

Coming back from my Thursday Poker game, I happen to be on the highway I used to make top speed runs on.

I did not go balls out, but I did want to see if the ESS Tune, eliminated the 155limit.(I know the BullyDog DID NOT eliminate it on my QX)

I am happy to say, it did!
I lifted at 163. I have no idea how accurate the speedo is, but it went past 155. When it cools off, I am making a banzai top end blast.

I do wonder what the ungoverned top speed of this SUV would be...I bet it could hit 170 stock before aerodynamics overcame the engine's power, if gearing would allow. Dinan keeps the limiter in place partially due to the runflats and partially due to the high center of gravity, although it does handle speed very well. It is definitely more stable with regular tires than with runflats, though.

The speedo is pretty optimistic with steady-state driving, usually reading about 5 mph high in my experience, although this is probably less true when accelerating.

At that speed the truck was great. straight line, steering never felt light. smooth as butter. Felt like it was cutting through the wind. I think 170+ will not be an issue all out.

Years ago I had a ML55 AMG truck and we took it up. At 140, it felt loose. You can tell it was not liking it. It had more in it, but just did not feel right.

I was a little hesitant, since I had an issue this afternoon. I dropped the hammer down a road and the Limp Home Mode popped up!!!!! But I shut her off. Waited a few seconds and started it back up and it has been fine all day. Hell, it couldn't have been that important if it just reset.LOL
So coming home from my poker game tonight. I decided to make a quick pass.

I stopped for gas before I decided, so FULL tank.
Temp was 48F. Humidity was 88%
So more weight. cooler temps, same humidity
From the results. This truck is liking the weather. Look at that MPH!!!!

Hard to shoot video solo. and adding a passenger adds weight.

I need to pick up a goPro and mount
