1st, this is posted in the wrong forum, mod please move.

2nd, you have no reason to go that fast. That's why Ford set a speed governor on our cars, unless you go to the track. Keep safety in mind. Instead of going faster, why don't you aim for more hp/tq? Look around the forum you will hardly see anybody asking to go "faster," because simply it is not necessary nor is it safe unless you go to the track often which I don't think you do. Just my $0.02.

But, to answer your original question, you can get a tune and raise the speed governor. I think it'll run you $379 (Xcal2 loaded with tune shipped). Contact 1turbofocus and he will tell you what he can do for you.

Here are some of the things you can think about when getting a tune.

Good Luck!
