G'day all, noticed yesterday that my speed limiter hits before rev limiter in 4th gear, (around 4600).

I've got a dyno run coming up soon, can i run it in 3rd? or is there a way of getting rid/around the speed limiter?

I could use my 3.9 ecu which has no limiters, buit will the performance drop as compared to my ED 4L ECU?

Cheers.

2nd gear in an auto ... as in 3rd ... it kicks down to 2nd ... that's what happened to the ute.

Although in a BA/BF ... you can hold it in 3rd in the SSS auto.
