Your going to need some kind of programmer like Hypertech. Also I'm curious now what is the GX governed to top speed wise. I use to have a Grand Cherokee V8 when I was young and it would peg out at 115 MPH. No more of that! Now I'm grown and have kids :-)

Because it's his / her vehicle and that's what he / she wants to do, that's reason enough.

The speed limit dealer be for several reasons: for security purposes, the standard rubber designed for this speed. If we take the highway, security will be ensured, tires replaced, I think the speed of the car 160mph will be quite comfortable.

Hypertech has not helped. They have no basis of my car. Thank you.

160 mph isn't happening in this thing without a limiter or falling off a cliff. I'd contact a tuner that does a lot of Lexus tunes, they'd probably be your best bet if you are dead-set on removing the limiter.

Make sure you get some tires rated for higher speeds and report back with the top speed if you are able to remove it.
