Re: Mule 3010 Gas Governor

The EFI mules are electronically controlled by a STUPID dual butterfly throttle valve. One butterfly is mechanically controlled via cable. Then the other is totally electronically controlled by the ECU and it changes its position based on vechicle speed and engine RPM, among other things. so it more or less closes when the RPM gets to 3800 and/or vehicle speed reaches 25 mph give or take. I suppose someone 'could' invent a tuner which would let the max MPH be at an increased speed and the RPM be increased to ~4500 or so. But unfortunately that is the only way to bypass the governor on the EFI's is to do it electronically. Maybe someone could try a resistor in the speed sensor circuit?

Yes the governor still works, although the engine speed is quite a bit higher in both low and high range. The governor works off of the transmission input shaft speed which is independent of the engine speed.

I just did exactly as shown in the diagram and my mule 3010 trans 4x4 tops out at 29 mph on my gps on level ground, and I also run 26 inch tires with a 2" lift. Will a hole at 1" gain more speed??
