I really hope ur kidding.. But if ur not, it "shuts down" the vehicle at a set speed. In the case of my 94, its 95 mph.

Thanks for the answer, now I know.

I learn something every day here.

i agree, i could not imagine pushing a full size that fast personally, but i know i push the speed limiter in my little ranger constantly, unfortunately it shuts down at 104, a real bummer. hope you can figure something out and if you do hopefully no idiots decide to pull out in front of you, thats the biggest issue i have in my ranger pulling triple digits

It aint bad in a full size truck quite fun if your out on open road with no traffic. I've had her up around 110mph. I dunno but you gotta love the older trucks without computers and stuff, i have yet to hit any kind of limiter on mine speed or rev.

i think to get what you want. you need to call superchips or places like that to have them to make a chip for you that removes the speed limiter..

Not sure if it shuts down the engine, or if it just alters the spark signal or fuel delivery output. Since you are set on going fast when you feel the "need for speed" don't forget about the "Whoa" pedal too. It should go without saying that you need to be concerned about slowing down as much as going fast. BTW, not a lecture, just mentioning the braking concern just in case you haven't done so already.

No it does not shut down the engine or do anything to the Ignition system.
What it does is lock the clutch in the TQ and shut off half of the injectors.
That is why some trucks will start and idle but as soon as you put them in gear the engine will die if they have a bad VSS or PSOM. If you look at the speedometer at the same time they quit it will be pegged out.
This applies to 1992-1995 trucks.

Just curious, does your truck have a factory tach? I had a 94 F250 XLT 460 that would run over 110. We were on our way to Colorado and got in a race with some other guys we knew out across Kansas. His car (some kind of Chevy) crapped out at 108 and we walked off and left him. This truck had a C6 trans and no factory tach (or any tach at all, for that mater) and was wound TIGHT when I let out of it. Finally decided to part it out at 321,xxx miles when it blew a head gasket. I haven't taken my similarly equiped 89 that fast cause it's to scary! That 94 drove like a sports car. Will it run faster in 3rd gear than OD? Just thinking...........
