One thing you must remember is that you have to be in 4wd for that override to work. It will not work in two wheel drive. I know I have run into that problem with a lot of my customers.

eaac is correct, the override switch works in 4WD reverse. It protects the diff gears which are not as strong in reverse operation as they are in forward operation.

It needs to be in 4 wheel drive first and then it will work

Why? All that would result in is broken diff gears. It doesn't limit your top speed in forward drive. It's strictly a safety to keep you from overpowering your diff in reverse 4WD.
Any helical cut gear (helical cut gears are quieter and stronger in one direction) is designed for it's strength in one direction, the opposite direction is weaker. Hence the need for the limiter in reverse 4WD.

Now if you want to improve your ignition performance, hopefully a few companies will have new CDI control units out soon.
