    haha no, i was just telling him about the ODB-II seeing as i had just learned about it, hes an IT manager also, so i figured he'd be interested. And hes no idiot, hes aware that you could very easily notice that a car was not brand new, yet conveintly had 0 miiles.

    Roger, in most vehicles the odometer is kept in several modules. You can reset the odo held in the ecu with a factory scan tool in many vehicles, but that won't reset the odo that you see on the dash.

    The "fishhook" manuever is the one that NHTSA uses to rate rollover. Just going 50 in a corner is not simulating the worse case. The fishhook gets the momentum of the vehicle transitioning from one direction to go way over in the other.

    Governors are commonly used to limit the top speed of the vehicle to that of the speed rating of the tires that came with it. For example my truck came with S rated tires, which have a top speed rating of 112, this also happens to be the same speed that my governor kicks in. Not sure about other cars governors but on my truck the computer drops spark to some of the cylinders to prevent further acceleration.

    Dodge is right - there's a reason why tall off-roaders are limited - high centre of mass and the tyre limit. Off-roaders are susceptible to flipping as they are - taking it past 120 really isn't a good idea

    If you want to elminate the governor...you can get a custom chip burned for the pcm and it will take care of that. Problem is your out about $400 for the chip, but later if you make mods to the motor you can have the chip reburned to adjust many parameters. We do a ton of chips on Mustangs, not sure if it would be worth it on a SUV or not, but thats how you do it
