Q: I want to take the speed governor off

asked by on

I just want to take the speed governor without modifying any other computer components right now. The 3.8 series 2 supercharged V6 and I run 91 octane gasoline

My car has 181000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hey there! You would need to get one of those aftermarket computer re-programmers to set the computer cut out speed and RPM limit. You would also be able to change tire sizes and change performance to give you more power with the 92 octane fuel you burn.
