Default Do i have a speed limiter on my ranger?

hey guys I am new to this forum and Idk if someone has posted a thread like this already but here is my question.

I have noticed that as soon as I hit 95 mph on my ranger it just will make a noise and my speed will decrease I am surprised because my 4.0 should have enough juice to push over 100mph or not? does it happen to have a speed limiter programmed in the on board computer if so what is the best method of removing it?

I know in Canada the 4L SOHC is locked at 175 KMH (108 MPH) and the 2.3L is locked at 170 KmH (105 MPH)

At my local ford dealer here in NC I know the engine and Tranny and differential are fine because they were completely rebuilt and professionaly inspected.

Only way to remove it is with a tuner.
Why would you wanna remove it when legal speed limit in most states is 70-75mph

I have a big ego and can't stand knowing my truck can't go over 95 mph. will a superchip remove it? or will I have to take it to the dealership to get it reprogramed?
