Red line to much

I need a rev limiter that's kind of the plug and play style.
7,200rpm cut off.
My SVT has 430 miles on it and has probably seen 7,500rpm's
more than what I would like to talk about.

Welcome! You just pushing it all the time. I don't think your getting to much power at 7200.

Yeah doesnt seem like theres much reason to take it that high anyways, theres not really anymore power up there, you're just dogging the engine after that, not so great especially when new

I Know the ZX3 does 7200. But does the SVT? IF you had a ECU chip your engine would be up in smoke by nowLOL

No real need for a Rev limiter you should change around 5k in 1st and 2nd just for thats where the real power dies out id just listen to then engine and get to know when to change just by listening

with such low milage why are you pushing it so hard?? I'd still be taking it easy.

BTW can't you use your foot as a rev limiter????

South Dakota. Open highway
No I'm not a rookie I'm a former GNX owner.
I just enjoy pulling along the side of the poor unfortunet humper of a honda
wave at them as I switch into 4th,5th,and then 6th.
Just to watch them strugle to keep any form of gap from forming.
It's the fun of destroying any hopes they could ever have
as fast as I possibly can get it.
