Speed Limiter!

Hi all,just wondering if anyone can tell me whats involved to remove speed limiter on my 93 manual ED Futura?The car hits a brick wall at between 180-190kph which can be quite annoying when youve still got another gear to go!
My other vehicle is an auto EB wagon(N.z assembled) and does not have a limiter.Is this just a manual thing or what?I used to own a 94 EF manual gli an this was limited too..Please help if my Holden mates find out im doomed!

Correct , and around 220 or less the drive shaft gets a harmonic which rips universals apart due to the lenght , so you have to budget for a two peice shaft as well... unless you dont intend doing 200+ then you dont need the chip . trust me a shaft through the floor of you car makes a VERY loud BANG.
