Wow I was surprised to see that there wasn't alot of flaming going on in here lol. Yes you could probably could unplug your speed sensor. But you won't know how fast you are going and two it could make the tranny shift crazy funny or too early since it won't know how fast its going in one gear. My friend has done this on his s-10. He would think he was going 120mph but in reality he was barely over 100mph and the limiter was at 98mph lol. Each car is different and I only seen this done on standard tranny equipped cars and one auto but it was again an older style chevy. I would'nt think you will hit your top speed but you never know. Good luck and lets us know how it goes.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
