Pretty sure you're out of luck without PCM access... Not positive though.

If its the car in the picture you'll definitely need to do some modding before the car will even be able to handle 105+ mph. Its governed for a reason.

ATLEAST get some Z rated tires if you are going to disable the governer. I did over 140 in my Redline for about 6 miles and the tires were extremely hot and smelled like they were burning. One blown tire and your dead.

ya man thats how people get killed, EXACTLY like that. you have to consider many things that contribute to why the car is governed, main thing being the tires. but dont think thats the only thing stopping you. i know a guy that took the limiter off his f150 harely s/c, driveshaft wasnt perfectly balanced for speeds above the limiter, and sure enough, it shreaded to pieces and he spun out. lucky he didnt flip, but he did slam into the gaurd rail. dont be like him man, just realize you bought a family economy car, if you wanted high speeds you shouldve gotten something else

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you are all of what, 16 or 17 years old? Your stupidity shows that. Your car isn't made for those speeds and i doubt you have the driving experience for it either.

Also, what kinds of cars are you racing your friends in that you "smoke them" yet their cars are not governed and fly by you at 105? The base cobalt is by no means a car built for speed. Nice car, but not for speed.
