My friend(girl) just picked up a new 2003 ZTS and I plan to race it down the 1/4 mile next Wednesday night. Any body know what the redline is on the 2.3L PZEV engine? Many thanks to all that respond.

If your stock you have a revlimiter so dont expect to hit 7 grand anytime soon.


The duratec hits max hp at 6grand, shift there.

Well, my 2.3 ST has a fuel/rpm cutoff at 6,750 rpm's. Otherwise, there's no "redline" on my tach.

Dyno graphs show that my maximum hp (stock) is at 5,700 rpm.

The graph below (compared with a Steeda intake) shows that the Steeda is making more hp at 6500 rpm than the stock intake is making at 5,700 rpm.

So for your car (a stock intake?) I would say shift between 5,500-6,000 rpm's.

But with an intake, shift at between 6,000-6,500 rpm's.

You make the assumption that those of us who post on old threads (such as this one) had actually noticed that it was an old thread in the first place.

You have assumed incorrectly ...
