speed Limiter

I have a jap import but it appears to have some kind of speed limiter in place. Car goes off the clock but then stutters. I guess top end I am getting about 115 mph (off road of course)

Any help in removing this would be appreciated

it sounds like whoever first imported your car took the cheap option to get around the MPH clocks...............yours probably read to 110-120MPH and if so have simply had a "face" fitted to the original ones

the proper way to sort is to leave the origianl 180KMH face in place and then fit a speedo convertor to achieve a de-limit and 180MPH clock

there is a slight variation in methods depending on age of import

Any one know of a supplier either on web or local to Oxford?
