There are two 'governer'*'. One is a rev limiter, the other is a speed limiter.

Your car tops out at 108, not 120. You can get a reprogrammed eprom for your PCM from www.gmtuners.com

However, your car doesn't have enough horsepower at the upper rpm'* to go much over 115-120 to begin with.

Aero drag and horsepower are funny animals. I'm off to calculate yours right now.

GM tuners should still be able to "remeby" the situation

No they can't. The GTO is a CAN-bus interface. GM tuners doesn't have that capability.
