Best Answer

The top speed is limited by the computer. There is a governor on it at 113

Mine is not governed. It is a 98 also. It may be because of where you live. If you live in the U.S., I think some states require certain rules on vehicles, e.g. California. I live in Canada and we don't have restrictions re: governing the car. I do believe however, if you know someone who can hook up the scanner to the computer, thatyou can change the setting.
