How to remove top speed limiter

I have a 02F150 with a 4.2 V-6 and 5-sp. This thing cuts out at about 95
mph. Scared the bejeezus out of me the first time it happened. I do not
need this to regularly speed but have actually needed the speed a few
times passing on the interstate and while in traffic in large cities(Atlanta)
Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

What's the 4 digit PCM code, from the white sticker on the passenger side door frame near the hingers? I can remove it with a Diablo or SCT chip/tuner.

Ken,

I have looked and can not find the code you refer to. I am looking on the sticker that
has the tire pressures on it. Is this the correct one. I can't look now because it is
raining but I will look tomorrow when it clears up. Thanks for the response.

The sticker is on the door ledge on the cab to the front of the pickup.

Mr. Payne,
I found the sticker thanks to ford5.8's help. Sorry for the delay.
The 4 digit code is EFK1

Thanks

The EFK1 calibration shows a speed limiter at 127 MPH

Mr. Brooks,

Thanks for the reply. I am not sure what is going on with my truck then
because at about 96 to 98 mph it either cuts the ignition, the fuel, something
because everything gets very quiet until I drop about 3 to 5 mph and then
power comes back in. If I had the 127 cut out that would be perfect.
Is this something I should check with my dealer on? Can they verify and if
it is off will they reprogram? Again, thanks for everyones help!

Actually, all F-150s are 95 or 105. It looks like the read we had was already raised by someone. Quite honestly, I've lived in Atlanta for 25 years I've yet to have a "need" to go faster than 95 mph.... just a "want" every now and then until I realized 5 minutes less time at home is better than being dead!
