No, I was somewhere in Utah, leaving it at that (was a road trip from L.A. to Boston).

I'm itching to do that again.

Are you saying the coupe is set to 202? I wonder what the stated need for that is? Of course, why would anyone in coupe want to go faster than 202?

Yesterday I saw the message...speed limited to 155mph... Hard as I tried I couldn't get it past that. I am told that you can just flash the computer to remove the limiter and flash it back if you need to take it to a dealer and not void the warranty.

I don't know anything about tuning so how do you do that?

Not true. If you flash the computer, the dealer will be able to tell no matter if you flash it back or not. There is an embedded counter that will be tripped when you do a tune.

Good to know. I was told that the computer could be flashed and the counter could be set back.

jeez i need to find some of the places you guys go for these runs. gm putting the coupe limit at 202 seems odd as i thought the ZL-1 maxed out around 186 or so. i thought the ZR-1 was at 202 mph

Does anyone know for sure if eliminating the governor would void the warranty? I don't recall GM telling me that. Since they didn't bother to mention there was one, why would I be obligated to keep it?

Guessing that any reflash of the PCM is a warranty voider regardless of which parameters were touched.

Maybe I you set it to the Coupes governed limit.. I don't know what that is. But I am assuming the vert has it because if you crash at anything above 155 it would be way worse than 155? That may be their logic, I am not sure. Or because the top may fly open. If your engine had problems because you tuned it to a coupes governed limit, I don't think you could get in trouble. But if your top messed up, I don't think they would cover it. Seems a little ace backwards, but they have their reasons I guess..

Yes the Verts are limited to 155mph because of the fabric tops
