Since you have a 1996 I will assume you have the electronic set up on your motor. If this is the case you may be able to go to a international dealer and have the limiter uped a bit but I am not sure you would want to.
If you have the t444e under the hood one thing you can do to give it a little more gut on take off and it will also help you hold your speed better up hill is to get a power chip for it. I know a ezedge for a 2001 ford will work in 2000 year model buses with a t444e motor. Remember this will not increase your top end speed.
