Anyone ever instal a speed limit defender?

Heya I was wondering if anyone has ever instaled a speed defender in there car. My soarer is only capable of a top speed of 175. And I was thinking about getting a speed cut from hks or greddy and it seems kinda scary to instal. Wondering if it really is that scary. Hell I cant even get arround to cutting into my ecu harness to get my air/fuel guage working haha.

Well, it involves wiring it into your ECU harness... so if you're afraid of doing that, well then you shouldn't do it. You could get a shop to do it for you.

So 175 isnt fast enough, hell there arent even tracks around here where you can get up to that. Thats almost as much of a waste of money as an HKS earthing kit.

in all honesty, the speed cut is probably more enjoyable than going faster.
