Can someone help with a code on the computer?

Hey there, I have 94 325. Today on my way home I happen to look down at the computer and it displayed LIMIT----MPH. It was rainy and 35 degrees. Is this a weather related warning?

I took a look in the tail pipe with a flash light and I can see chunks of the steel wool like material that will probably blow out the next time I start it. Does this mean it time for a new muffler?
