I think its on there for your safety as well as the safety of the other people on the road.

I would agree, whats the need to go over 120? (As if there is a stretch of road long enough for that to happen in the first place... :lolhittin)

I have no governor on the st :) Top speed is 135 then the rev limiter kicks on. SUprises people though that the little 1.6 can do it.
Testing of the top speed in my st was done on the Federal Republic of Germany's Autobahn system and was performed legally/safely. I do not drive like that anymore because of the additional wear and tear on the car and the excessive use of fuel to do it.
The difference between my daily driving style (60mph commute) and the foot to the floor is generally a difference of 10mpg. I average around 33-35mpg at 60mph and around 23-24 at 120+ mph.
at $4.60 a gallon it is not wort it anymore to drive fast. (the locals are paying around $12 per gallon but I get my fuel through the Military here)

You can't just remove a governor from this car. As far as I know you're pretty much stuck with 119 without a lot of modification
