How would a person remove the speed governor on a 1996 Pontiac grand am gt 2.4L 5speed?

There is no 'governor' in the normal sense. Both the engine RPM and Vehicle Speed are limited by the engine computer. There may be some 'Speed Chip' solutions to remove the speed limiter but, the 96 has a 'Flash' program, not a removable/replaceable module. You would either have to send it out for re-programming or a buy a second ECM (Engine Control Module).
