I have an AU3 forte wagon. I am just wondering if it has a speed limiter, is it incorperated into the ecu and how do i bypass it?

In the ecu - need chiptorque or similar to remove it.

You have to be brave (or stupid) to do more than 180 in a wagon though - long tailshafts are grenades at those speeds.

180kph

And yeah, good idea not to remove it unless you have a VERY good reason (i.e. you track race at speeds greater than 180kph).

Keep in mind its not there to stop people going faster because its against the law, its there to stop people going faster because the car is not mechanically strong enough to withstand it.

check your rotors -front for warping-run out, any more than .002-.004 thous, of inch will give massive pulsingand steering shake,best to drop speed to 180ks before braking-less load-with good brakes-------------use a chute next time and brakes,lol :roll: :roll:
