NCS Expert and Top Speed Limiter Question

Hello....

Ok I have checked a lot of forums and discussions and yes I am asking this question in a new thread. Because most forum discussions, by the third response, go off on some retarded tangent having nothing to do with the original question. Rant over.

2005 330i M Sport Package. Does this model have a speed limiter and what would it be set at? Ive seen numbers from 136mph to 155mph. Anyone with a descent solid answer is welcome to advise.

I have NCS and am very good at it however am having trouble locating where top speed limiter info is in the coding. Any suggestions?

Secondly, I turned off the seatbelt chime however the seatbelt symbol still illuminates on the cluster. Any way to deactivate the red seat belt symbol?

Thank you everyone.

Unless it's a ZHP, the limiter is probably set to 128mph or so. It will do 155mph if you de-limit it.

Thanks AndreBXP

Not ZHP. Has the M Sport Package. Do you know how to deactivate the limiter through NCS Expert?

Not possible IIRC; I was only able to remove it via an ECU remap.

The seatbelt symbol can be deactivated...but I believe it is a lot easier with PA Soft.

The speed limiter can not be removed with ncs. (To my knowledge) but I've removed mine my self by tuning ecu. Easy. I've also increased my rev limiter to 6800. Maybe 7000 later

Thanks Franz. Yes I deactivated the buzzer previously through PA Soft but do not recall seeing the option to eliminate the actual red symbol in the cluster.

Thats why I thought maybe NCS would have it.

Thats coding info of the LCM? It seems like they lift the headlights at speeds above 175km/h for a given value of 01 (whatever that value means in ) and it seems they lower the headlights for speeds below 10km/h for an other value 01.

The last one makes no sense even to me.

Unfortunally, there is absolutely no possibility to change the vmax of the car by coding with NCS.

Daniel thank you.

Yes from LCM I just looked it up on my trace back ups. I had that picture on my phone but did not recall from which module.

I accept the fact that vmax cannot be changed through ncs. I dont plan on reaching top speeds but I am an enthusiast that sleeps better at night knowing my car has no restrictions if needed.

Switch to ms43, get a ZHP, or shark.

I hope you are taking your car to a track. You don't need to go 128 + or even close to that speed.

I live in Texas. The whole state is a race track. Average speeds on highway outside the city are 90-110mph.

Regardless, I have another car, classic Impala SS which does 160mph+ with no limiter and I have gotten it pretty close to that.

So not looking for the speed. As mentioned in previous post I would like to have all options activated and all restrictions removed as an enthusiast.....

It's not difficult to raise the speed limiter on the ms45, but you'd need a BDM to flash the tune (unless you can figure out the RSA protection which apparently Jim Conforti did)

You have the 3 options for removing it. The shark is the easiest way.

You just come off as young asking for this(not saying you are). This whole forum has become younger and the appeal of taking a car the absolute max is here. The issue is most think they can handle a car at those speeds when the skill/experience is not there. If speed is not the focus then why remove the limited? You reason for just for the sake of it makes zero sense. That's like asking for the info on a drug dealer just for the shits of it.

Not to digress, what's under the hood of this classic Impala? Transmission/rear end etc?

Sorry for the late reply Zander. Rough week.

My 95 Caprice Classic/Impala SS has the LT1 Corvette engine, 5.7 liter 350 cubic inch. K&N cold air induction, Edlebrock wide throttle body, 3.08 rear dif... soon to come transmission shift kit, Holley hooker headers and flowmaster exhaust.

However, before I even did one mod to this car it would do 150mph+ stock and is twice the size of my 330. It shifts out of first gear to second at 49mph and spins the rear wheels at that speed and shift point. Total sleeper on the road.
