VSS trick

From Sonomapilot:

Jack up the truck on the passenger side.
Make sure you can get between the jack and the front tire.
Look at the tranny and you will see 2 plugs. The one you want is the one toward the rear of the truck. Press the clips up so you can pull the plug.

PULL IT !!

feel good now ? You should because you don't have a speedlimiter anymore !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

However, you have also lost your speedo, trip and odometer. Not to mention the ABS too !!!!
Your ABS and SES lights will come on in about a block of driving.
Wrap some tape around the the plug ends so that no crap gets in there.

Drawbacks ? None. Some will say that it somehow causes the tranny to heat up more ?!?!? The only way I can see this happening is due to the excessive speeds that you will now be able to drive .



I'd also like to add...this will only work on 5-speed S10s/Sonomas, both 2.2's and 4.3's. Do not try this in an Automatic, you will not get out of 2nd.

lets see :

no limiter = very good
no odometer = very good in a way

no abs = kinda bad, but hey, we haven't always had abs now have we
ses and abs lights on = who cares, electrical tape covers those right up.

sooo, in conclusion, 2 very goods and a kinda bad. I dunno, doesn't bother me to do it. Just my .02.

Sounds like 5 bad things to me. I would only do this when I knew I was going to exceed the limiter, which wouldnt be too often.

Whats so bad about a top speed limiter anyway? Especially on a 4 cylinder? Not to mention the road is meant for "driving" not circle track racing. Going over a 100 mph in a truck isn't a very good idea to begin with.

80-85 mph is as fast as I ever need to go on the highway I don't have 600 hp so I can go 200 mph on the freeway..... it was put in place for other reasons.

well, mine cuts out at 87 because of tire and wheel sizing. And I cruise interstate at 85. . . hard to keep it at that down hill and not hit limiter. So i unplug it. No biggy to me.
