M8 rev and speed limiters

What's up all,
Anybody found out what tuners take care of these two, I'm guessing the big three and it's probably in here somewhere but I'm short on time . Yep I'm aware of the warranty implications.

My Power Vision eliminated both.

Power Vision did the job , but I really have no use for the increase RPMS. Even with the sidecar the M8 does the job.

Thanks guys!

More or less any race tuner will eliminate the safeties. With an M8 you might want to go easy on pushing the rpm limiter.

My feelings are the factory puts the limiter in for a reason.
Face it, these motors, ( from my bad luck anyway), donít seem to take long walks on the beach with high rpms.
Correct?
Shortened lifespan come to mind so I donít know why most want to circumnavigate factory safeguards.

Speed limiter I can see getting rid of. The Rev limit is raised to about 6300rpms on most MAPs Stage 1 and up even with the street tuner. Why you would want to get ride of that or raise it I have no idea. 6k is more than high enough as your cam is done by then anyway unless you have some pretty high Hp cam. Even then the Rev limiter is a good thing. If you want to Rev some high Rpms go buy you a crotch rocket.

Will add a question. I just have stage one with street tuner. Agree with most on here about rev limiter. My question is what is the speed limiter set at? Discovered out west last year that my M8 cruise will not set above 90mph.... 89 is fine, 90 is a no go... Who knew?
