Damn governor. It sucked so bad today, i'm cruising along at 95 this little car goes right past me. I had it floored and only going 95 that sucked. At 2,700 rpms. The highest setting i got with the chip is steet race

You know, I've never tried it with my 8,000# truck with balloon mud tires on it but every other computer controlled car or light truck I've had was governed near 100mph.

I had my truck to 124.9mph with the stock tires on it, GPS calculated.

Since the 35's have been put on, I have only had it to 96.12mph.

Back in 99 or 98 I can't remember now but the stock governor is set to 93 on my truck, that was with a total weight of 10,100lb headed to Montana to kill some prairie dogs....

north of 480hp and south of 13.7sec

i think it all depends on the chip. the edge does have a speed limiter disable option.

With the chip the governor should be disabled. I know my TS 6 chip disabled the governor. I have had the speedometer spring back to zero and then bump back up to like 25 mph so I figured I was doing 125 which is scary fast in a truck that wieghs around 9,000 but when your pregnant wife is screaming at you and in labor what are you suppose to do.
