Speaking of chips, speed governors?

I was wondering if there would be a speed governor in my '98 V6 4x4. It has a manual tranny, but I hear that it might have a limiter of sorts anyway. If it does, what speed does it top out at? My speedo only goes up to 100, and then I have to add 5 miles per hour to my guess because of tires! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

And I think a module chip would work to eliminate that (the chips don't just pull out anymore. DAMN!).

Well if you hit 100 your engine cuts for just a second to slow you down. Thats what happens in mine anyways...I mean thats uh what i hear.

Don't know about the s10's, but the full size cut out at 98mph and the governor can be eliminated with an aftermarket chip. I would venture to guess the s10 is similar.

It's always best to test out things like that yourself... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] It would suck to suddenly need to go over 100mph and find out you can't do it... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

<font color=purple>From a totally different perspective, those chips are also cool in that you could set the speed limiter much LOWER - say, for those who have teenage drivers in their household. Those of us who survived our teens & early twenties looking back can say, "Boy, I'll bet Dad wished he could have put a governor on MY truck back then!"[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]. Man, my kid's probably gonna hate me. I'll probably stick one of those breathalizer things on there so he can't start the engine drunk.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]</font color=purple>

Dad, something's wrong with the car. It only goes 25mph tops!
