Cheapest is you can illegally disconeect the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). The tach will still work, but most of the other instruments, including the speedometer, won't. Somewhere on this or Focal Jet some mechanic did it, so you might want to search that out. You could rig a switch to leave the VSS connected, except when you want to exceed the speed governor. Best to proceed as suggested above, though, with a tune.

Are you tracking the car? If not, what the heck is the point in going FASTER than 114?

would i get any performance gains with that 419 dollar tune tom? and if the speedomiter dosnt work, and you have a digital milage gauge, theres a way to have a digital speedomiter in miles and kilos per hour, a digital tack, and a digital volt meater. i saw it on youtube. press and hold your milage reset button when the car is off, start the car, keep it held in until it says "test" then let go of it. if done right, it will say gauge and your gauges will sweep. from there, you can toggle through the options by pressing the button. :D sorry thats a little off topic, but pinot reminded me of it and i thought it was cool :D

I don't know if that will work if that sensor isn't reading anything.
