Easy...install an XR ECU...gas runs off a different computer so maybe it doesnt recognise the limiter.

How do you know this by the way?

LPG doens't have Speeed or Rev limiter because both are Fuel cutouts, u can't cut the fuel if its not being injected via stock ECU.

i wonder what would happen if u switched to petrol while at 220 :P

if i remember rightly, at 180 the ECU cuts power to the injectors.

LPG has no injectors, therefore no speed limiter

bad enough doing that in a SWB, but in a LWB, your lucky your tailshafts well balanced or youd be dead right now.

As per above - the speed limiter is a fuel cut. Quite simple to install a fuel cut defender - basically interrupts the VSS signal and stops the ECU from seeing any speed above 180. Most interceptor tuning devices will facilitate this...

Why ANYONE would want to go that fast in one of these things is beyond me!!

didnt they do a test on the tail shaft dropping out of the car on mythbusters they even dug a trench for it to drop into. it messed the floor of the car up a bit but nothing to the driver.
