Does The Pontiac G8 "GT" have a governor's limit on the speedometer?

Does The Pontiac G8 "GT" have a governor's limit on the speedometer??, most if not all american cars sold have a governor's speed limit on them thats a certain speed limit like 105 MPH which you can't go past even if your speedomoter can go to 120 mph for Example..so if you happen to own a Pontiac G8 GT and have tried to max out the speedometer..could you go all the way to 180 MPH "MAX SPEED DISPLAYED ON SPEEDOMETER"..if you can include a link to proven your answers and strengthen your response please provide it...thanks very much in advance!!

The speed limiter is built into the computer. A custom tune should remove it.

Nameer: The governor speed limit is for the safety of people as G8 is a full size sedan which can catch high speeds......its just a software programmed in the car you can get it removed from any local garage at your area....
