It won't happen unless you buy an aftermarket high performance PCM like an El-Diablo or something. There is no separate "chip." The PCM is programmed the way it's programmed by the manufacturer, and that is the way it is. I guess you may be able to buy an aftermarket "programmer," but I have seen a whole buncha car engines totally messed up by that stuff, including the aforementioned high performance PCM's. These engines are simply not made to handle the stress of performance enhancers, that is why there is protection software installed into the PCM. But I realise that some folks just have money to burn on replacing engines.

Where and how do you remove the governor on a 1990 Cougar?

AnswerIts not wise to tamper with the Governor. Simply because its illegal, however if your willing to risk it, its usually a bolt on for cars made before 1997. After that its purely a computer program. If you find an image of an engine that shows where the governor is, you can easily remove it. I too was annoyed with the 85mph top out speed.

The governor is in the pcm of the car. You can buy or borrow a powertuner to hook up to it and remove the governor (and to do other things).
