You may not want to do that. the governor keeps your engine below a set RPM limit. going above that too far would grenade your engine. It won't give you any more horsepower at normal RPM's, just the ability to rev higher and generate more horsepower at the expense of engine life.

Go to http://autos.msn.com/ and put in geo/prizm... then look up the year of the prizm...1996... click on features and specs. Scroll down, and you'll find the horsepower of a 1.6 liter 1996 geo prizm. I found it to be 100 horsepower.

It does not have a governor. Speed is computer controlled.

The alternator blocks access to it. You need to remove the serpentine belt, then the alternator to get to the thermostat.

Remove pressure from the fuel system. Remove fuel lines and the rails. Get a fuel injector puller to avoid the risk of damaging the injector. Remove the old injector and replace it.

Remove wiring harnesses, unbolt it, remove from engine. Install new alternator, apply tension using bar, bolt it, hookup wiring harnesses.

it starts at the transmission near the firewall, runs through the firewall directly to the speedometer. you have to remove the combination meter(where the speedometer and guages are) in order to remove it.......this is not for amateurs!

You'll have to remove the door panel in order to access the bolts holding it on. Not real difficult, just kind of a pain in the rear to do.
