Re: 2010 Governor!

Yea but wouldn't necessarily change the limiter, that's determined by tires usually

Re: 2010 Governor!

I'm pretty sure its 155 as well. I only hit 140-145 in my 2010 GT and have only got my 2011 up to about 125-130. I want to get out to an open track that has a huge straight to see what I can really do. This car scares the defecation out of me ... at 130 it's still pulling hard as ****.

C&D says 149

It really is man. When I was 140-145 in the 10 (and it was a Track Pack car BTW) I really had a "come to Jesus" moment. **** was flying by so fast you couldn't even see what it was...

The speed governors are usually in place because the stock tires will fail if you go any faster. Or like with the 3'7Ls, the two-piece driveshaft might fail (there are videos that show this happening). That's why I always try to recommend to V6 owners that they upgrade the tires and driveshaft before removing the governor

It is set at 155. Its kinda like when you hit redline it cuts off. And they will go 155 without much trouble. On the way to Wendover it climbed to 155 pretty quick. Way to fast though, won't be doing that again any time soon.

Yea mine is still pulling pretty good when it shuts down. I think I hit 155 about once a week on the way to work early in the morning when I catch a few other fast cars that wanna go.

Governor has to do alot with the tires they put on and the maximum capabilities individuals parts need to perform to. I could go on for days, but it is also partially for insurance purposes as well. And when it shuts off, it's just the fuel that cuts off until you get below a certain speed, no harm will come to your car
