Well, first of all, tell me why you want to. I'll then explain to you why you don't want to. Then if you STILL want to, I'll tell you how to do it.

You will already have it. The key words for today are, repeat after me, "ROTATING MASS". Your engine isn't built to withstand 8000 rpms. You would need stronger internals to run higher rpms. Then you get into other problems. Too many problems to list here.

You will have all the power you need with the VF22.

How do you get rid of the governer with the utec. I have an auto so i'm limited to 130. I don't plan on going that fast on the regular roads but when my car is fast enough in the quarter, i'd like it removed. Thanks

I don't know about the speed governor. You can raise the fuel cut, however. But, I'm hesitant to tell anyone because I've seen first hand what can happen....

I thought the 5 speeds didnt have governors. I was doin 140 in mine and nothing happened, besides the sh*tty tires shaking the car like a mofo.
