    there has been old trucker stories of drivers adjussting the speed sensor on hte back of the trans out some to get a higher governed speed (i guess due to the sensor not reading correctly) does this have any truth? 60mph is getting old fast.

    its a 2005 vision 350hp with a 6speed trans

    It is possible (sometimes)to unplug the speedometer sensor and the truck will run wide open MPH, however most owners/companys who have their road speeds turned down have the MPH sensor tamper settings enabled. What this means is if you unplug the sensor/tamper with the adjustment or any fault occurs with the MPH sensor it will derate the HP and you will be worse off than just leaving it alone.

    Backing the speed sensor out will probably cause the engine to derate and set a 4-1 fault code.

    A dealership can reprogram the ECU to turn the road speed limiting feature off

    Just plugging in a new sensor won't do anything, the sensor has to read voltage produced by the transmission. A new sensor will cost as much as having the speed limit removed/changed. It should take about 10-15 minutes if that's all you have them do.
