Rob and I were talking about this subject over the weekend, I have put in 4.14 gearing, and running 265 tires, my fuel was cutting off around 94mph. So if by reading this correctly, If I take the speedo cable out completely and go to a GPS speedo I will solve the cutoff problem?

Just disconnecting the wire would do the same thing. The speedo has nothing to do with the ecu signal. But removing the signal causes other problems. The VSS changes the idle mode and without you get stalling problems.

Yep, the VSS is the issue. Disconnecting it will cause it to stall when returning to idle, which is worse.
We need a RRC ecu with a higher limit or a new eprom
Nice thing is a RRC ecu is plug and play and cheap. Just need to drill new mounting holes for it on the 95.

Found this page with some good info
http://www.actproducts.co.uk/2011/lu...gnostic-notes/

also looks like the 23 tooth sprocket will return the speedo to "Normal" as well

I looked at Rovergauge tonight while hooked up to my truck and there is no way to "Flash" it in, hard programed eprom so that figures
