October 15, 2003does anyone in here know how to take off the govener from a 1995 chevy pick up 1500 series without having to buy a hyperchip or anything else like that
October 16, 2003Well, I've learned a lot about this area since this post started about a year ago. Unfortunately, to change your speed limiter, you are going to need to actually change the programming of your computer. The easy ways to do this are with a chip or a microtuner. I'm sure there are other methods but these are the only ones I know about.
October 16, 2003I have a Diablo chip in my '97 F150 and had the chip burned to remove the speed & RPM Limiters. Now, since my truck is lifted with bigger tires, I don't know exactly how fast I could go. I am too nervous to try it. The ONLY reason I had the Speed Limiter removed is because mine came on at 85, and when you are driving the interstates in Arizona, the speed limit is 75. With an 85 Mph Speed Limiter, you are going to get run over.
October 16, 2003Slow down. Trucks become unstable platforms at over 100mph. Espically if you get bigger tires. High center gravity+high speed= death. If you want high speed get a car that was meant for it.
October 16, 2003not if you drop your truck and get some 20s its fine it wont do anything but if you have it lowered with some wide tires one it its even better man i would know i have it lowered but i havent reached my peak preformance on it ive gone 95 mph on it hoping to get up there with you guys on the 115 haha
October 16, 2003The Superchips MicroTuner raises the speed limiter, but I don't know to what speed...
I love the performance enhancement! It makes a huge difference on the shift points and accelaration is awesome! It was also nice to be able to change the tire size to the correct setting. The only problem is that it didn't have the 87-octane performance setting available for the Expedition. But, it at least bumped my MPG up back up a little to 13.5 from 10.0
October 26, 2003There is a lot of PCM programmers out there. Your best bet is to send it off to one of these companies and they will write a new map for what you need. As with everything there are sacrifices, especially in chips. You can increase your top end but oose a lot off the line. With a programmed map you can have everything custom tailored to what you want. It will run you about 250.00
October 27, 2003I remember the last time a thred just like this started.... boy did that turn into a storm. I still get shudders whenever I see an Echo
I say you need to get a Micro tuner to remove your limiter.
I know my limit is around 108... I think.... I've only been up to 102
