How fast? I need mine not to go 56 in a 45 zone ;) It was a blind on-ramp - there he was waiting as I came around the corner.

Got pulled over this week, but only got a warning as I had no prior issues. Seemed a bit picky IMO, but I did not gripe to the officer.

It shouldn't be so much as how fast it will go, but more importantly WHERE it can go and how comfortable it is as it goes there, IMHO. Haven't had any issue going where I want, when I want and in total comfort. If I do need to get moving, the Hemi has enough snort to motivate it to highway speeds in about 7secs which is really decent for a heavy duty SUV. Now if I were on the Autobahn, I'd probably opt for an Audi A6 or Mercedes E-class if high speed is the requirement.

i wouldn't trust going faster than 100 on my JGC. On my 335i BMW that's different:D

If it is like GM (am still learning), the FCO and restore are one byte values in the computer. Knowing which bytes and how to change, that is the question.

From another posting it appears that major tire companies can adjust the bytes since it is to match the speed rating of the tires and has little to do with the car.

If your cutoff is at 110, I suspect it has S or T rated tires, with H's it would be 125. Just another present from the US Gov. Tax dollars at work.

ps Police cars get special calibrations.

Padgett is correct...

Check the speed rating of your tires! Not to mention suspension and braking. A tuner should be out in the future allowing the govenor to be removed but I would not remove it until I made sure the Jeep could handle it.

As for the Autoban. Stay in the proper lane for your speed and your fine.
