To turn it into a full manual, The governer is no longer needed, as is not the kickdown linkage, modulator, etc, but a special valvebody is needed. What this person is talking about rremoveing is a governer on the engine, a speed limiter, these are confined to small engines and tractors, etc, doesnt apply to cars. Newer computer controlled cars have an electronic governer that retards timing and/or shuts off fuel to kkep you under a certain speed, this is 90 and up model years... No matter how you look at it this guy doesnt make sense...
