I'm no expert but I highly dought your car has a governer. It could have a rev limiter at a certain rpm or mph. Thats possible.

You can't just take it out, you would have to replace the ECU. But to find out if it has one or not go on the interstate and find out. [when there isn't any traffic]

no, a rev limiter stops ur engine from reving past a set rpm, govener stops ur car from going past a set mph

I have an 00 Civic Si and i had it going over 144 thats the last number on the spedo but i had it barried so i think i was doing lik 150-155 so it shouldnt have a speed limiter most imports dont have one.
