A tuner from a company like SCT, can/will remove the governor from the car.

I wouldnt recommend going those speeds Cars tend to get a bit drifty. Also any cross breeze in a Hatch moving at high speed is just not a recipe for a fun evening

a friend of mine has a 5 speed zx3. it wouldnt be worth the money for the tuner just to remove the limiter. his car will only run about 110 in 4th gear at redline then the shift to 5th only slows the car down because its an overdrive gear and it doesnt have enough gear to keep the car gaining speed.

You need to do more modding! My 5th gear got me to 130mph on the auto bahn, and it just stop there. wasnt too bad hugging the road and i only got progress springs and stock weight.

the cars are speed limited due to things such as tires, aerodynamics, gearing, and alot more. but 120 or so wouldnt hurt with good tires and suspension upgrades

Yes: You can have the speed limiter removed by a programmer like SCT or by using a chip like Diablo Sports.
