Is it illegal to remove the speed limiter?

So I found that my 2011 Mustang V6 is electronically limited to 120mph. Is it illegal to remove the speed limiter?? if not, who can remove the limiter?

Removing the speed limiter is NOT illegal at at, whats is ILLEGAL for sure is going +120mph where is not allowed.

However removing the top speed limiter sometime is less than useless, what if the NOT-limited top speed is 121mph ? does not seem worth the trouble, the first step would be to find out whats the NON-limited top speed, for that, you can use a car performance simulator, try at http://www.nxgtrsim.com

so when you hear those words electronic what does that mean to you? there is just a little guy in a squrril cage and you let him out to be free. Or do you suppose that it is all a part of the ENTIRE COMPUTER SYSTEM IN THE CAR?. IM GUESSING ITS ILLEGAL but thats fine all you need is someone who has spent years working with computer systems who can reprogram the electronics and if your lucky remove the speed limiter that the engineers carefully inserted into the computer. no problem EXPENSIVE YES, no problem though.
