Hi, my name is ***** ***** you for your question.
Sorry for long delay
The only way to remove speed limiter is have ecm programed and that can only be done by a authorized Isuzu dealer.
They will charge you 1 hour shop time to remove.
They may also request something that shows you are the owner of the truck or just purchased truck.
Some companies add speed limiters to keep drivers from speeding or using more fuel.
If you have no dealer in your area you could send your ecm to them when you will be off on holiday and put back on after you get back.

do you have any contacts in auckland new Zealand or any other ideas?
Expert:  spankyjr1 replied 1 year ago.
I have heard of needing a code for removing speed limiter, but that is a customer password ***** the previous owner would have, so no dealer would be able to change without there code,,the only way to get around that is to have the ecm totally reprogrammed/replaced, which is basically a rebuild with all new parameters.
No I have no contacts over there I'm in USA.
You could increase rear tire size but then speedo would still read low but you would get more speed out of truck,, probably around 5 mph.
Or change ring and pinion in rear end to a higher gear but still speedo would be off.
You could always add on a external speedo if its that important,,if you just need to go faster no worries.
Best of luck to you.
