It's really not proper to request or provide information for defeating safety systems on Internet forums.

If you are talking about governors installed on all US sold cars -those have nothing to do with safety, but rather government dictatorship.
All cars have factory governors, where high performance cars have it at 250 kph, lower powered vehicles can have it lower to not go past the redline.
Posting location and what limiter you are talking about would be a good starting point.

And on top of that, if you roll it over and kill yourself, your parents and estate will probably sue.

Welcome to the forum mb
Not all U.S. vehicles are goverened. I know of several w/o a govenor, and many with govenor above 250KPH (155mph) . Corvettes, some of the hemi chargers, and several cadillacs aren't goverend, along with some imports just to name a few. The Z06 corvette and one cadillac have top speeds in excess of 200mph (aprox 330 kph)

Now how to change the limiter is another question. In some cases it is a piece of cake, for instance on my Silverado diesel, with a diesel programmer such as the diablo preditor, I can set the limiter to anything I want. Factory is set to 99mph, resetting it to 115-120, which is what it is capable of with the proper speed rated tires is not a problem. Now do I want to drive 7000 lbs. of good old detroit iron down the road at 120, hell no!, but the 99 mph limiter is way to easy to hit when passing a long truck. you might want to look at a few of the diesel tuners and see if any will let you change the limiter.
