Speed Limit

I slowly started to let my foot drop and as the speedometer hit 115mph it wouldn't go past that, I was in 4th gear so I shifted to 5th and nothing the rpm's were not even maxed out. I feel like this might have to do with the ecu, if so how can I fix this?





Thanks in advance guys!

Governor. It's on there so your driveshaft doesn't end up poking through you floor board.

three reasons.

1. driveshaft issue
2. govenor
3. because there's no reason you need to go faster

also i had to edit your post a bit or i'd have to close your thread all together. welcome

A tune will remove it but it's not recommended. I had my 3.7 over 130 before on a track but that was before I knew of the issues with the shaft.

So basically if I tune it to remove the block it will start to mess with my drive shaft?

Yea the driveshaft is a very crappy design on the V6 models, if you go 130+ you will risk it literally snapping.

technically for a normal driver its perfectly fine but people like us who live off of this should've had an optional driveshaft that can handle more lol
