shops in tampa area
hey there guys, im new to the forum here, i recently bought me a '94 formula and im annoyed to find out theres a speed limiter on it, and its only got a 115 speedo :\ but hey it can be fixed, there's hope. i was told a way to remove the limiter is to have the computer flashed..that true? and if so u guys know of any shops around tampa where i could get a good deal and get this taken care of?

is it a 6-cylinder? i was not aware of the v-8 having a speed limiter if you decide to do something about the speedo let me know i have an extra 150mph guage cluster oh and yeah the limiter can be changed by a shop or a hand held programmer

yeah its a V-8, 360 LT-1 thats whats wierd, i guess that year they kept the lower speedo and put a limiter on it, thx i mite take u up on that guage cluster, does it have all the standard, dash stuff? the one i got now is kinda orange/red backlit and i'd like to get one to match that if i could...u know of any shops that would take out the speed limiter?
-my bro works at a caddy dealership and could get me a deal probably, u think they'd have somthin there to reprogram??

your brother should be able to have one of the service guys take care of it all they do is plug it into the diagnostic port and the cluster i have is from a 2000 ws6 the color should match by the way you said its a 360 lt1? should be 350 and the ls1 is 346

buy a used hypertech computer programmer, you can take the limiter off with that and change some other things, it is dyno proven to give you something like 18 more rwhp and 16ftlbs of torque. you can probably pick one up on here for aroun $150. that would be your best bet.
