asechips.com will remove the damn thing but you gotta send ur ecm to them or you could disconnect the vss, a kill switch is better though

W/O a chip run a switch to the VSS (vehicle speed sensor) coming out of the transmission. I cant exactly remember the color of wire but it will be on the drivers side. Someone else may be able to help with the exact color of it.

if you have auto you can get a SCU2000 from jet chips it will take out the 92 mph BS BUT if you have a 5 speed it WILL NOT HELP YOU why I dont know

U do not need a chip or anything expensive of that nature. All you need is like a 5 dollar 2 wire toggle switch and about 30 minutes (if ur slow!).

email for directions on how to get rid of the speed limiter.

by the way, this is for the speed limiter, not the rev limiter.

installation is entirely inside of vehicle, no need to go into the engine bay.

I am a car audio installer so the install took me like 15 minutes.

Installation is stealth, toggle switch is hidden, no one will know-because in reality it is against the law to do this, but hey.....

If you have a 5 speed I know for sure that it isn't going to hurt it. As far as the auto, I really wouldn't think so but Im not sure.:thumbup:

Okie about the VSS. this is what i got from sonomapilot on SSF.
Its highly illegal and incredibly unsafe. No tach, no speedo, no odometer, no abs, and a whole lotta warning lights. Im sure doing this long term and often enough will eventually screw something up bad.
anyway how to do it.
Its on the passenger side of the tranny look for two plugs and pull the rearward one. so thats the wire to splice into if your gonna do the toggle switch thing i believe. If im wrong someone correct me id hate to have mislead anyone and screw their truck up. Oh yea tape up the plug hole and secure the loose wire. He said he has a GPS thing and it read his speed at over 120. AS for 0-60 times im going to a 1/8 track on friday so ill try to do the old stopwatch run and ill post my times on the boards.
ONCE AGAIN I DONT CONDONE IT, THATS JUST HOW I HEARD ITS DONE
