I have a 2000 Celica GTS with the triptronic automatic and found out the other day that it has a speed governer and a fuel regulator that keep from going past 120mph. Does anyone know how to fix or override these or somewhere where i might be able to get help with solving this problem? Any help would be amazing thanks.

Hmm, surprising... My manual 2000 GT deosnt have that problem and tops out at 225 KM/H (140 MP/H).

I think ur best bet would be the ECU - Maybe changing the chip.

Good luck.

If only it was as easy as taking some things out.
A master mechanic will take it off for you if you throw him some cash.
Of course remember what your doing it for.

Normally a chip will remove the limiter. If you could pull up a wire diagram you could find the kill switch yourself.

If its just a fuel signal that gets lost (the cpu cuts pump power) run your own power line with a tie in to a positive ignition wire that way when you hit the ignition the pump starts as normal.

Or run a switch (toggle or rocker)

something is wrong with your car, my 7afe corolla AT would pull upto 105 or higher eventually.

really no reason to ever go that fast.
