yes great idea for performance, not so for rev and speed limiter, if u ask data_mine he will tell you why you shouldnt remove the speed limiter and rev limiter unless u have a strong enough motor and a GOOD tailshaft to handle it.

Be really careful when removing the limiter, even in sedans they have been know to let go at around 195 and create absolute hell.


There is a thread on FM, showing a tailshaft that let go on the dyno, creating total chaos.

Otherwise though $1200, sounds dear; a uni chip would do it for cheaper, but it might be worth waiting; tuning inprovements for EF/EL EEC-V are not that far away.

yeah dude ur defenatly right on the equipment on its way but iv spoken to one to many mechanics about these units that will defenetly make tuning easy, but be at a very similar price as what i was quated to remove it...but not in a hurry to speed just got a new tranny and gotta take it easy on this one money doesnt grow on trees...

mate, one wire cut and you lose your speed limiter. the chip bull**** is just that, BULL****! not your rev limiter though. i have a chiptorque and my rev limiter got raised but i left my speed limiter. it is there for a reason, and i dont want my tailshaft hitting me in the face!

chiptorques only adjust your rev limiter, not your speed limiter mate. i have one and cam, intake, exhaust, idle and rev limiter is all they can do. if you want to get rid of your speed limiter, you need to cut one wire and one wire only. its that easy.

what makes you think your speed limiter is gone?

LPG falcons do not have limiters at all in my experience. Maybe the newer "e-gas" falcons do, but pre-AU they don't. This leads me to believe the limiter is a fuel cut, as opposed to spark, hence not working on LPG? I dunno, but they generally don't have them.
