Default 1994 4.0L Engine Have A Governor?

I was wondering is their a speed limiter aka "governor" in a 1994 4.0L Ranger. BTW I hav a 5 speed manual. If that can narrow it down a little bit.

Find a really wide long straight road put your foot on the floor and dont let off until it stops lol! That way you can find out if it has a governor, but i really dont know if it has a governor or not. Thats what i would do to find out. I have a 2000 with the 4.0 it doesnt do much after 95mph but thats because it has alot of miles on it and is gutless.

yeah thats the best way 2 do it. I've got it up 2 95 also, but it seems like it could hav a lil more ooommmppphh left in it. I did the throttle cable mod, so it deffinatly helps taking off at a higher speed. lol

if it helps my truck literally shuts the engine off right at 100. it feels like the truck has a lot more top end left but of course the stupid computer stops it..

before that i had a 95 escort 5 speed and it didnt have a limiter at all. it just plain would fall apart if you went too fast! lol
