You need to get a tune. That is the only way to remove it. Besides removing the speed limiter it will also greatly increase the efficiency and performance of your car. Tunes are great, I would recommend getting one as my car is a lot more fun to drive now. And also if you want you can run higher octane with a tune, like me as I’m running on 91 now. But ya tune is the only way to eliminate the speed limiter.

All you need is a chip to remove it. You can still go faster than 110 with a uncapped governor on the stock tune. But getting a tune would be better... since your doing that kinda stuff and your at the shop anyway.
