Find a dyno tuner in your area they can do it for really cheap.

Can the dealership do it with any of their tools? I know someone who might would, if it is possible.

They probably can, but the trick is finding a mod friendly dealer

I work out with a chic who's son is a tech at a local dealer. All I want is for him to plug 'er up and handle it. It's worth $50 to me. Should be the easiest $50 the guy has ever made. It's not like I plan on doing it, but I have been in a few situations, very few mind you, that 110mph limitation would have bothered me and prevented what I needed to do at the time. Very rare, but this SUV is capable of more than 110 safely and sensibly if hard braking is not involved.

There is a few brake upgrades as well. I upgraded to slotted rotors front and rear and running ceramics all around

For performance applications I prefer solid blanks. The ceramic pads I have had before we're awesome and I plan on using them again, but I have a lot of pad still left. I just don't think the system can handle high speed stops well tbough. Weight vs. Swept area and traction a available.

Mine have held up very well so far.

He is right theoretically for one high speed stop a blank will fair better as the pads are cool and and don't benefit from the cooling of the holes and slots. For normal stopping and track stopping a drilled and slotted rotor would be better.

Be sure to ditch those factory crap rotors. They'll warp after one good press on the brakes. Also, if you can make a friend at your local dealer, you might be able to get them to shut down the limiter with the STARscan tool...but that's probably highly improbable for liability reasons.

Is this tool 100% known to be capable of doing so?

The STARScan tool controls basically everything on our WK's programming-wise. Though I don't have any proof that it could change the limiter. Note that the toll is like $600+ if you want to buy one haha.
