02 does not have a speed cap its a lower rev limiter.

it is not limited by any governor or speed cap.

the 02 got the revised shift gates they came out late 01 as well.

the 03 got drive by wire
04 same as 03([possible new action package)

2000=2001 the same except for late 01 which had teh revised gates.
