How do you Remove the Governor?

Is the only way to get this removed is to bring it to a race way or some place like that? Or is there another way?

The only way I know is through an election. Or he could be impeached.

lol very funny..

doesnt a tune void a warranty?

my previous car, a 2007 dodge charge r/t, didn't have a governor (i maxed it out at 172mph), so i have never gotten one removed.. kinda a newb at modding lol

Yes, any type of tuning you will lose your powertrain warranty. So you either have to live with the speed restriction or live without a powertrain warranty.

You are limited because of the speed rating of your tires. Now you could get higher speed rated tires and go to the dealer and see if they would bump you up. If they would, I bet you would be able to keep your warranty. Just a thought.

I would think from a liability stand point that's going to be a tough sell for a dealer. You go out and wrap that car around a pole at 160mph and someone's going to say, "Hey, aren't those capped lower?" Next thing you know, dealer is trying to explain why they enabled a street registered car to go triple the national speed limit. "Oh he had new tires," seems to be an awkward explanation.

Not really. My V6 is capped at 155 MPH, it's the same car except the tires and rims, so if he puts on the 20" Havoc's he should be able to have the 155 MPH cap just like everyone else, but from what I understand it won't happen, they won't do it at a dealer anyway but it can't hurt to try.

I wouldn't trust them to do any tuning on this car.

I've heard of folks getting ECM calibration for 3.91 gears that didn't affect warranty. Must be because the 1LE has the calibration for those gears.

Better have those rims attached to wheels as they usually don't function without each other.
