First off, no more name calling.

Second off, removing something that is in place to protect the engine is pretty dumb. But if you want it gone you will have to get a tune to remove it.

Third, if you want a better launch, invest in stiffer motor mounts, suspension, tires.

I've read a couple times about guys dumping the clutch with the MTX75 around 4800 for optimal launch at the drag strip, and even though the tires spin at lower RPM launches the engine still bogs as the RPM is too low once traction is available.

This thread quickly turned into a two person argument immediately with each of them taking jabs at each other. I think it is ridiculous to continue or for people to chime in the same way.
You have a point. Lemme re-post.

Since you can't change your RPM revness, you're instead going to need to get the power up. Intake, exhaust, header, tune, and or fill up with E85 if your car calls for it. That's pretty much all you can do.

Although you can't control a dig as well as you can with the manual, there is a slight gearing advantage with the DCT. The final drive on the 5 speed is, 3.82:1. The final drive on the DCT is 3.85:1 on gears 1,2,5 and 6. Gears 3, and 4 are 4.28:1 for the final drive. Averaging out at 3.99:1, so there's that.

your car doesn't make enough power to need to remove rev limiter. so i don't see why it matters just because you think it will help.

but by all means if you insist on ******g up your engine and putting major unnecessary ware and tear on the engine and transmission, you need a tune.

i seriously don't understand the stupid shit you guys want to do...

Tuning solutions are avail. depending on transmission type and factory tune "strategy", not all can have the limiter adjusted/removed to date.

Can't even spell Wear "ware" correctly and wants his opinion to be heard... Smh. Keep your attitude to yourself dude. This engine keeps pulling past redline, max I would go is 7,500 or less depending what Tom thinks is safe.
