    You need to buy a power programmer to the tune of 400 bucks give or take a few.

    i would reccomend hypertech or superchips

    its simply "plug and play" easy to do .. less than 10 min!

    im not sure.. you also need to take into consideration the speed rating on your tires. :rules:

    you remove the governor and run it til they blow then next time you back it down 5 mph to be safe.
    removing the governor won't make it a rocket ship though my truck tops out at 125moh.
