depends what trans you have. they all do basically the same thing, but if you have an electronic trans it's not just something you can eliminate. the governor is what regulates upshifts. on a chevy 700r4 and similar older transmissions it is a mechanical device that spins in relation to road speed. the faster you go the faster it spins. it is connected to a spool valve that directs fluid to different shift valves depending on position. the throttle valve on the other hand is connected to the throttle and fights the governor to prevent upshifts depending on throttle position.

the reason i ask is i need to shorten up the engine/trans/t-case for my new buggy, if i can eliminate the governor i can spline that section of the tailshaft and get about 5" shorter. i am leaning torwards the 700r4 for the low 1st gear

i take it you don't want to run a manual? the sm465 is considerably shorter then the 700r4.
