the "governer" on this vehicle is programmed into the main ecu. the
only way you can remove it is to replace the ecu with an aftermarket one
or re-chip your existing one, but i doubt either is smog legal.

The speed governor is a function of the Japan-market ECU. It can be
disabled by tuning firms using software or hardware changes. You need to
Google or check your phone book to find tuning companies in your area that
will do this for you.

One link I found:

Don't know if you can get this in the UK or not.

I just checked the OP's DNS and traces. His IP address is supposedly on
this side of the Atlantic.
Up to 20 hops, a traceroute shows local-type pings, but immediately
thereafter it jumps to more like either slow dialup, or overseas times.

I originally thought he was in the UK, hence my answer. His query (and his
reported speed limit) is highly indicative of a JDM car that's been
imported to the UK.

The UK has some pretty stupid automotive laws, but one thing they're
sensible about is engine swaps and modifications. Extensive tuning and
modifications are common there. So long as the car still passes emissions
properly, they don't care what's under the hood. That's a nice change from
the hysterical insistence on originality we have over here.

The "governor" is not there for your sake, well I guess it kind of is, it's
there for the vehicle's sake. My '06 has H speed rated tires, that's 130MPH.
I'm sure your '02 has the same or less. Blah blah blah, other things.

If the governor was there to keep you from speeding, it'd be set at 70MPH,
but it's not.
