Top Speed 95MPH????? Why???

2013 6.7 tops out at 95MPH, how can I override this? Is there a trick to do it or do I need to have the dealer do it?

Please don't ask why I want to do this, it is a personal choice. I could run 120 in my old 7.3.

I should control my speed, not Ford!

what raul said you will need a tuner to remove the speed limiter and also make sure your tires can handle the speeds. You dont want to have a catastrophic tire failure at those speeds. Im pretty sure that 6.7 will do better then 120 depending on what gears your running

It's because of the tires and driveline. Also, from a safety perspective, a 100+ mph 8,000 lb hunk of metal could do down serious damage.

Doesn't all newer trucks limit speed between 95-100 with the exception of maybe a couple

get a tuner. Also, Ford puts that on there so they don't get sued by some idiot that got in an accident because he was going faster then the vehicle is setup to do safely and wants easy money.

Mine has seen 135mph once or twice. And not for very long since I don't have tires rated for that speed
