By gov I assume you mean the speed limiter. In which case you would gain a slightly higher top speed... Which isn't really all that useful.

I believe the gov in the 99-04 GT is actually around 140 which is about where you will give out stock.

well guys I hit 150 in it no problem, and yes that's what I meant if you wanna put it that way, but I was just doing some reading online and what I got out of it is that if you take of the gov "speed limiter" it would help 0-60 a little to

I have driven a 00gt and my 02gt to speeds higher than 140 without a gov kicking in....just the top end of the car not wanting to go anymore. I know with a tuner it has options to SET a speed and rev limiter, never known one to be set on the car stock.

My neon gov would literally **** the fuel off at 118mph, this never happens in my mustang

I've taken my old GT to 145 being stupid and a Necio..

I don't understand why you would want to go that fast unless your a Supra, or Have a really fast car Lol.. Just kidding

I say SCT handheld would delete the GOV.
And yes a better driveshaft +1

We are lucky a 2 piece driveshaft wasn't invented 99-04 like in the 2011+ V6 mustangs. I hear those things blow up past 100 Mph

Removing your limiter will not affect 0-60

Disagree. The gt flat lines before the rpm cutoff. There's no point revving it higher. Adjusting the shift points on the auto does help. But raising the rpm limiter on a Bolton or stock sn95 car won't do you any good. All you'll do is jeopardize the valve train.
