Speed Limiter

Okay, this one has many people stumped. Even before I put on my H&S, my speed limiter was at 85. When I installed the mini maxx, I changed it to 120, and well my speed limiter is at 85. I have H&S looking into this problem for me, but were wondering if anyone had any ideas? They suggested to reflash the truck because from the factory it should be set to 95, so why it is 85 doesn't make sence.

Not sure what information you gave the tech, is your truck a cab and chassis?

My truck is an 08 F250 CC. I asked the tech how much the reflash was because my limiter is at 85 and my friends truck is 95 from the factory. He said he can't change the limiter on his end.. I asked him again why all the others are 95 mph and mine is 85.. since my truck was used, maybe it was tuned before and set it to 85 for some reason, idk?

Its nice to have the option just incase you need to go faster.. Well what I'm wondering now is. The previous owner was a firefighter. Not sure if emergency vehicles have to have a specific speed limiter on them or not, but I believe the truck was his firefighting truck (if that makes sense), but the only thing I can think of is if the truck was previous tuned or limiter was changed by a different programmer, would that affect h&s not being able to change it? Dealership would charge $95 to reflash, but I'd have to change out thew exhaust and etc.
