not all cars have them, but most typical passenger cars do. if you even plan on going faster, think of new tires first. one major reason for a governor is because the rubber fails at high speeds. if you're pulling on a car up to 110, then there really isnt a need to go much faster. i am in no way condoning attempting it. for the 07 ls i know of no way to remove. i say just dont do it

word. Cars have a govenor for a reason. Usually its because its for whatever stock tire is rated for. So taking it off and going those stupid speeds is retarded.

just leave it on, if it takes a car til 110 to pass you, youll get em in the 1/4

i have an 06 SS non supercharged and I've hit 125 once. most of the time its around 118-120 and i let off. most of the time just on the interstates i run 80, occasionaly 90 if i'm in a hurry and dont have my kids in the car.
