2004 sprinter speed govenor

I have had situations (running high speeds on Americas Interstate highways) where it was actually dangerous when I could not get my Sprinter over 83mph. This happens when trying to pass big Semi trucks, and I need the extra kick! The local Dodge service tech says there is nothing that can be done. Surely there is some answer to this dangerous problem. A Fuse? A Bypass of some sort? Etc.?
Thank You,
Dennis

Did I read right 83 mph ? The engine control unit has a speed limit built in cannot go over 161 kph

Yes, 83mph. BUT - I have since found out that the actual speed is only 77mph. Seems there is a built in "false reading" [xx(]

Any Sprinter I've had (3) WILL do 97mph. I'm talking 312,313 European.

I sent the Engine Control Unit of my 2002 to http://www.speedtuningusa.com/. They claim to reprogram for increased HP and torque, and I think they are legitimate - I can tell the difference, especially with a trailer in the mountains.

Side benefit - no more speed limitation. Reached 105 mph in the middle of Nowhere, Wyoming. My better judgement convinced me to back off, but there was more in it.
