That and I wouldnt want to have an issue with the Navajo Nation Police, possibly be arrested, jailed and have to appear in one of their district courts

Any tune will remove that, If you have Kess or galleto or know someone local that does, the locations are already in the comprehensive tuning thread.

Side note I was thinking of playing with lean cruise to see what I can get mpg wise, problem is I don't have the discipline to actually not push the car enough to gather some data.

Not that I would recommend anyone should exceed the speed limit... but...

You can either have the top speed limiter coded off or, you can just stay in 6th gear and wind it out.

If memory serves me correctly I don't think the speed limiter engages until 7th gear.

As well you can also have your rev limiter raised via coding.

I know. My comment was tongue in cheek, really. Its not safe, and idiotic in general to drive 185 mph on public roads.

I've been known to associate closely with idiots and have on occasion been confused with being one.

The limiter in M mode in 6th is higher than the standard 155 in 7th... but it's still limited to < max revs.
