No problems at all - you need to install a small kit that bypasses the restriction and takes your car past the 112 mark

For the life of me cant find my link to the kit... Ill keep hunting...

Wont harm the car in any way shape or form

I think you can also pay the import place to do this job for you.... Not sure of cost's as I'm sure it would vary...

I though the limiter was 180kmh, and that when you converted the speedo, it became 180mph by default, rather than the equivalent 112mph ?

Certainly my JDM sti hasn't been delimited as far as I know and it goes past 112mph

Try http://www.powerengineering.co.uk/ac...speeddelimiter - I'm sure others do a kit but these guys do know what there doing - ask for Ian. Had it done by another company (can't remember name) on my old Soarer and that didn't work!
