My 93 is chipped. It'* been to 156 so far. Far enough, frankly.

I could chip my 95 and change nothing else but the speed limiter for $40 assuming I had a spare eprom to have programmed. Not much point in it.

I'll change OTHER stuff, but honestly, you don't NEED to go that fast. I have an *******-sized chunk of leather missing from my driver'* seat. You do the math.

I know the GTP PCM'* can be modded to raise the limit to 255mph but not sure if the Bonneville PCM can be done the same way. Dan

Yes, it can. From DHP, INTENSE, Jet, GM Tuners, Hypertech, and on and on. When we say 'removed' we mean 255mph. It'* a digital world. 0-256 is digital.

We have many cars on this Forum with removed (raised) speed limiters.
