There is a governor on the 1991 Accords, but it is controlled by the ECU and cannot be removed without hacking the ECU. The fuel cutoff is at 7,000rpms but the governor is at 120mph. On the 1991 Accords, the engine revs are only around 4,800rpms at 120mph. A mod garage can disable the 120mph governor by accessing and hacking the ECU. Disabling it will not cause problems but the car may become aerodynamically unstable at speeds above 120mph without suspension upgrades.

It's programmed into the engine ECM. You can remove the ECM, but the problem with that is that the vehicle won't function, whatsoever.

You probably blew the motor up. They won't last long without a functioning governor.

people do live with problems that have affect their hypothalamus, but i am not sure if it is possible to be born without one or have it be removed successfully

Sometimes they do cause a lot of problems/pain with people but most people are fine. They do not have to be removed unless these problems arise. I have had mine for over 30 years without any such problems.

In most cases the governor can not be removed, without it the engine runs wide open and theres no way to slow it down. There are other cases where it is just a limiter on throttle travel, and those can be adjusted to give you some more throttle.
