i have a friend of mine that works at the nissan dealership here in texas, and he said he could take the top speed limiter on my truck, he also said that it wouldnt be more that 200 bucks what do ya'll think.
and i know what some of ya'll are thinking, if i want speed i should have gotten a car, but what the heck i wanna see what this truck can do, also i know that the top speed limiter is there because thats what the tires are rated at so im gonna get some new tires so i dont kill myself.

I would really like to know if this is possible. I am in Germany and my truck tops out at 111 on the autobahn and cruise can not be set above 90. This really sucks as the truck is still pulling strong at that point. It is really the cruise that bothers me more because I would like to cruise at about 100 on long trips. Let me know what you find out.

ya mine stops at 114 and that is not enough i was racing a crew cab f150 and i barly beat it and it was because of that stupid limiter and i also raced a late model z-28 and believe it or not i was ahead and he barly creeped upon me until i hit the limiter andthen he shot by if i didnt have this limiter i strongly believe that i could have kept up with this car.
also this guy is a good friend of mine he wont take me for any money.

One of the limitations for top speed is the driveshaft. You better make sure your driveshaft will not hand grenade if you try to do 135.

Well, if your friend can indeed have this done at his dealer (not convinced, though) it would probably only be a 5 minute job with the Consult II....so $200 is more than just a little high. Maybe he's getting a little kick-back....know what I mean. :teethmast

My wifes mostly stock '98 Z-28 put a very embarrassing STOMPING on my sweet little Titan and she had her fata$$ mother and two teenage boys in the car with her. Thats a good extra 650lbs. of dead weight. Heck, I even cheated off the line before our light turned green by at least a second and by the time I hit about 80mph, they were about 10 car lenghts ahead. Now she calls my sweet Titan "the Beeaatch truck".

it looked and sounded like the camero was racing me but i could be wrong im just saying what happened, im not an idiot i know there is no way a titan can keep up with a v8 camero i said i was ahead and it was strange because the car was barly catching up so i stand corrected.

If that speed limiter(governor) is removed or disabled, any warranty will be null & void!! If you damage or blow that motor, Nissan won't fix it!

Ford put governors on their Mach 1s back in the early 70s(Still do) and people were blowing the engines, taking the cars back expecting Ford to fix them and Ford said no way cause the governors were removed!!
