eh, all this talk on chipped limits... I didn't know the 95's were limited. Many times I've had mine over 130. and as far as I know the computer hasn't been tampered with. I'm the 2nd owner of this car and I'm pretty sure the old guy who bought it had the speed limiter taken out.

I don't know about '95s though. I don't remember any govn'r on my '94 Regal. I don't think they started speed limiting until OBD-II.

Interesting. I thought they were limited. Maybe Billboost knows the answer?

I have a friend who had a 95 and he said he got it over 120 plenty of times. Maybe not all had governors.

Well when my speedometer goes about 3/4 of an inch past 120mph, that's usually a good indicater wink

i see.
just out of curiosity what was the build date on your door panel? maybe the early 95's didnt have limits!?! anyone else with a 95 verify that it does or doesnt stop at 108/112?

My Riv was built in March '95...is that an early Riv?

Never mind though, because I'm not one to go speeding with a permit or a junior lisence.

ROAD TEST MAY 13, WHOO!

mine is nov 95 but it is a 96. so an early 95 would be ~sept 94 if i had to guess.

An early Riv would be from late May of '94.

I believe on your car as on the rest, it can only be adjusted electronically in the PCM with the proper tuning equipment.
