It's set there because your tires are rated at 112. If they allowed the car to go faster than the tires are rated at, you could experience a blowout at 117+ miles per hour, meaning you'd likely be dead.

Before you try to remove the governor, you might want to consider upgrading your tires.

You have "z rated" speed tires. T Z is the speed rating, the R means radial and the 17 means rim size. 245 is ur tread with in mm and 45 is the aspect ratio of ur side wall height to the tread with. (just incase you wanted to know what everything else ment

EXACTLY. my friend has gone 130 before on the same type of tires, no blowout, but i bet if he had done that in the arizona 105 degree summer heat, it wouldn't have been the same case as when he did it at a cool 60 in winter.


btw, thanks for posting the info, now i know :)

Chip or programmer, or someone who'll use his programmer for you . . .
