speed limiter??

i dont know if anyone remembers me talking about how my car bogged down, and also needing a primary o2 sensor before and thinking that had to be one of the reasons it bogged down. but i will say it again.

when im at WOT, and in 5th gear at 6500 rpms, at 120 MPH, it bogs down. even when i switch into 6th and it reaches back to 120, it bogs down. you think it might be limited to its top speed? i know last time i mentioned this, people said to get kpro, which i know will be a really good choice, but i dont have the money for it. anyone running their stock 02-04 Type-S ECU in a 6 gen civic have this problem?

im just asking again, because the people who swapped it for me dont know the problem. (idiots) after a primary o2 sensor being installed, and no CEL's now, they dont know the problem. another problem with the ECU they found out, was that hondata had one of the wires in the wrong spot i guess. that was another reason i had CEL's. but yeah, i just found out since i actually tried to keep pushin it tonight to go faster, and it only went to 120. so what im thinking is, theres a limiter or something.

bump for you, sorry i do not have any knowledge on this subject maybe call your local honda dealership to confirm the speed limiter. p.s. Thier is no need to be going that fast on public roads you are talking about at the track right.:p
Yea sounds like the top speed limiter, you ever play forza or something same deal, goes to a certain mph then backs off then back again. To me that is what it sounds like, this one of the reasons i am saving for the kpro, i found it for 850 so its not to bad, also helps with emissions. My area is basically no check engine light and a visual inspection your good. lol.
