Re: How can I disable my rev limiter.

Now why do you need to go 150+ again?

And your idea to disable the rev limiter is a great idea. Mustang engines love reving 7k+.

Here's the answer you're looking for:
1) get a tuner, turn off speed limiter
2) get different rear gearing. If you're running 3.27's... go lower (I'm not familiar with the LOWER gear ratios but like a 2.7x or something would allow you to run faster than your car thinks you are, makes your acceleration slower, but in 4th, you'd be able to go faster than 150) It will also throw off your speedo, another benefit of the tuner.
3) drive off sufficiently tall cliff so that you reach 150+ before the bottom.

it'll work to about 140, then you'll shift to 5th... and over the next mile you might get to 143... ask me how I know

Also, driving that fast on the interstate is asking for it. My suggestion is no. ANYTHING can happen at that speed. Blown tire, a deer, car pulling out in front of you. Any of those at that speed and you're very likely to be toast.

Re: How can I disable my rev limiter.

Good Luck getting to 150+ mph in a Gt. Hopefully the engine will call it quits before you reach that speed and take someone out with you.

Re: How can I disable my rev limiter.

Upton, you are stupid. If I could hit you with something, I would, right now.

There is no reason you need to do 150 MPH anywhere. Ever. Much less post about it on the internet. Only people with no common sense do that.
