'96 Bird Speed Governor

Hello all! Hoping someone can help me with this one?
I have a '96 4.6L sohc 2v bird with low k that I picked up for a good deal in pretty nice shape. I've done a few things to soup up the ol' girl but have hit a small snag. The stock legs seemed really long so I put 3.73's in the rear end was really happy with the result. The only problem was the governor now kicked in at about 140k/hr. I bought a hypertech programmer that bumped the governor to just over 155km/hr. I searched all around and there weren't many programmers available for this car, and the hypertech seemed the best one. Is there some way to have an unlimited speed govern? There's lots of rpm left. I may upgrade to PI heads/cam/exhaust as well for some more hp soon. Any info appreciated. Thanks! BURN FUEL!!!

Re: '96 Bird Speed Governor

Did you make the corrections for the difference in the rear end for the speedometer? Not sure if the governor is looking at rpm or the speed sensor, I'd assume the speed sensor on the output of the transmission.
