ASE chips are a farce, I fear. They promise big increases and show a "dyno" chart to back their claim. If you look at it carefully you will notice that it is hand drawn. Uhm, if you are gonna make claims and try to show a chart ..... at least use a real one.
- BTW, what is a speed limiter? Hmmmm don't have one on the '01 R/T !!!!! Sorry, couldn't resist.

Chips are probably a bad idea, I doubt our puny transmissions could handle any more power.

As for the govenor, why would you want to go faster than 107 mph? The fastest a stock 1st gen can go is 140mph w/o govenor. Drag is a b***h

Think about it this way, the govenor will prevent you from doing something stupid, like I did, hit 140mph.

I bought a PCM for a '95 Intrepid of E-Bay and put it in a few weeks ago. I thought it would be just like mine until I decided to take up to the top of the speedo. I was expecting the engine to pull back on me and slow down, but it just kept on pullin. I hit 125 until i had to back off. I was very suprised. I'm pretty sure this PCM isn't chipped, so either some '95s came without a govenor or the previous owner knew how to deactivate it.

I may be wrong, but I think some Intrepids came with a nicer suspension an tire package. These had no governer. There's got to be someone else out there who knows more on this subject than I do. Anyone else care to share?

It was called the "Performance and Handling Group" Package. The car came with michelin tires that could take highier speeds. Visions also came with this option. Other than that your on your own.
