Default Take off the damn governor

I can't find it anywhere how to take off the governor. My 99 ex tops at 120 in 5th and still have plenty of rpm's to use up. I can go a little past 120 in 4th gear. My friend's 2003 civic tops at 135 and it's automatic. Is it even possible to take it off?

Yes you need to chip it. I dont think OBD2b has chips for speed limiter. You could always convert to OBD1.

P.S. slow down and don't kill innocent people.

is the governor preprogrammed in the stock ecu or is it a wire that can be cut? that's what I want to know. Maybe a wire that's telling the computer that the car is going 120 mph.

there is a speed signal wire but i believe the ecu is programmed for a certain rpm at or above x speed to cut fuel. However one way to pick up a few miles per hours is to get larger rims or taller tires. more rotational mass = tricks the computer
