Don't go 100 on the highway. It's a pretty quick way (no pun intended) to go to jail.

yea u have a governor. but ive been reading up online on other sites where people say that they have no governor. (chipped maybe) is the car an auto? or 5spd? cause ive gotten my 94 up to 140 @ bout 5 1/2rpm and it can still keep goin. with the stock f22b1 motor in it. and stock ex tranny. im also rocking a 5spd.

honestly i think its cause its an auto ecu. i know automatics are governed lower than 5pds are. the only thing i can think of is, swap it to a 5spd and get the 5spd ecu. and if u get a little ancy with it, chip the ecu.
