i know that ef/els are speed limited to 180 in stock form. is it correct that the ecu manages this? without piggybacking or replacing the computer is there any way i can get rid of the limiter by modifying it(the computer) or an other means?

Exactally. The tail shaft doesn't handle faster speeds, thats why its there.

Thats right, the speed limiter is there for a reason! Not just to piss you off.

I'd like to know where you drive your car that you can legally reach speeds past 180km/h
