When I worked on the 4.0L ranger, we limited it to 89 mph because it would tweak the aluminum driveshaft if you drove faster.

Tweak as in bend / warp / hit things.

my buddy has the edge in his and it made a noticible diffrence. better gas mileage. they have 2 diffrent ones, one does not have the speed limiter. the tranny shifting you can set on this chip also. worth the money.

My Superchips does the following: shift point change/shift pressure change (for each gear) speedo/gear/tire size correct, speed limit change, 87oct.mode,tow perf, and performance 91+oct. and you can fine tune all of these to you're little heart's desire. 87 oct mode with all superchips preconfigured settings (yeah, you can do that one too) gives a noticible mileage increase.

Ok... I HAVE the Edge on Mine... The Limiter is Set at 135. I've had it at 135 steady blowing stangs and Vette's on the E-way plenty of times. the truck dont over heat, RPMs are Not Bad and there is no Vibration.. For everyone on here that thinks your going to Kill yourself with modifying this and doing it dont really know whats going on, and have never been Over-seas... ALL Cars and Truck and Toned way down from what the motor is Capable of. they do this thanks to Government Regulations and Yad Yad. (why do you thing stock motors Take NOS , programmers etc,. . ) If something is dont right and not half assed your Plenty Fine! Granted i wouldn't be running your truck over 100+mph all the time not to great on stock gears and the average truck does not come with a tire rated at those speeds. . But The Edge is well worth the money. .

input Gear ratios, Gas to Air , Rev Limiter, Speed Limiter, Shift Points, Spark and Yad Yad Yad... Worth the Money!! i Love Mine!

Not Trying to be a Smart ass.. but they sell the same Truck over-seas and there pushing 100+++ everyday. . (Built Ford Tough) :)

I think everyone is just trying to warn him that it is not a good idea. Nobody said the motor won't take it over 100, only that there are plenty of other things on the truck that are not designed for those speeds. American cars are detuned for lots of reasons. Insurance, reliability, and safety to name a few. And this truck was bought used correct? I wouldn't be too eager to push a truck that I don't know anything about to 100+ mph. I'm all for getting more power out of a truck, but I'm not sure racing mustangs at 135 mph on public roads is a reasonable thing to do.

I'm sure your tires are rated for 135 mph. I think you are completely missing the point. It has nothing to do with the engine.

I love it when the end user argues the safety of something with people who designed the drivetrain.

Anybody who chooses to go 135mph in a F-150 is in the process of giving Darwin his best pickup line, hoping to hop in bed with him.

Just for everyones information The "main" reason for the speed limiter on any vehicle is tire rating. There maybe be some other dumbass reason like the ranger driveshaft issue, but that was to cover up a piss poor engineering flaw that was resolved at a later date.

Tweak that bitch tell it breaks! Speaking of tweak - look at the twEEcer programmer.

uhhhh yeah, cuz they were not racing you, and they were trying to avoid your big dumbass so that when you wrecked you didn't collect them in the process.

Capable of going that fast, YES
A Realistic good idea? Not in a big dumb mud truck.

Have others here done similar stupid human tricks? Yes
Should they be warning others not to do it on public roads? Yes

Learn from others mistakes or experiences.

VW I made you a cookie for your extremely entertaining post, but I eated it.

All I can do is provide a warning. I'd rather not see vwBOY (or anybody, for that matter) get hurt. The speed limiter was put there for very good reasons.
