Speed Limiter on BA XR6 Utes

When I was in England I rented an Mondeo 1800 that had a better top speed than my XR6. How do you get rid of the limiter and who will do it in Melbourne?

You had a mondeo over 200km/h, what are you crazy?????

Any of the SCT based ECU gizmos will sort your problem (and give you more go)

i second that hahaha. it would seem that he is!! btw... acceleration is where it's at on the road... top end speed just lands you without a license or in jail. (my 2 cents).

I could be very wrong with this, but i hear/thought the reason that the speedlimiters were fitted was that the tail shaft wasn't balanced, please someone correct me if i'm wrong.

Re: Speed Limiter on BA XR6 Utes

The BA XR6 ute wont do 200, it will only do 180, no faster.

I had the Mondeo at 115mph on the M1. They arent so hung up about speed over there like they are here, everyone there seems to speed. 90mph is the norm.
