Speed Limiter ?s (want real answers, not lectures)

I have been reading old threads for hours, this question has been asked many times, and everything I have read turns into "your going to kill someone, your ghey, your a rat, your on meth", and so on....I have not found the answer..


Here is the ? at hand, Can I "shut off"(disable) the speed limiter on my 94?

Seriously? Even if I add a chip or something? I was kindof hoping it was something as symple like adding a 3 position tq converter lockup switch.

By the way, thanks for a strait answer, even if its not what I was hoping for.

Well OK it may be possible with a chip.. I have not looked at any that are available so I don't know what is possible with them. I know I can do this with my Tweecer but this system is only compatable with MAF computers for the most part.

Yes with MAF the potential is good, systems like the Tweecer are expensive but Moates products are pretty cheap and can accomplish many of the same modifications. - Ford Pre-2005 : Moates.Net

I just looked at Tweecers web site, and they dont show a listing for the 92, just the 93-95 Lightning, and the 1995-1996 F Series & Econoline..... I'll take some time looking at the link you just posted... Thanks.

mike460 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Just a little note of caution here, too - make sure the tires are speed rated for however fast you plan on running - I had a tire come apart at 126 mph on the dyno on my truck and it was not cool at all....I can't imagine how bad it woulda been on the street....

If it will work on a 1995 it should work on a 1994, they are the same truck.
Except I see yours has a E4OD and I think all the 95 I have seen with the 5.0 have the 4R70W transmission.
That would be the only thing I can see that would make a difference.

They say "speed is limited only by the amount of money you're willing to spend."

I guess that kind of holds true in this case, as well.

Would a Mustang ECC have a higher limit programmed?

You can have a chip burned & get rid of the speed limiter & rev limiter , or set it where you want it & lots of other things.....Lew

Hitokori is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
