My ED wont hit redline?

G'day guys n gals,
I ran my car down the quater last night and found a problem. She stops pulling at about 4,700 rpm. Holding the gear any longer the car wont pick up speed nor pick up revs. So i was changing gear early and therefore having less revs for the next gear. My car has been converted to 5speed and still has the auto ECU in it. Could this be the problem? its the only one i can think of at the moment.
THanks appreciate the help!

Re: My ED wont hit redline?

Rollin's did this a while ago, a new cam fixed it. Hehe, there's your excuse! GEt a big cam! :)
Mine did it too before I changed the engine. Haven't gotten round to opening it up yet but I suspect I burned the valves. Was gutless all through the rev range up to 4000, where it started to fart.
Also, your timing chain could have slipped. Highly unlikely though.

Re: My ED wont hit redline?

cam is on the way.. lol i wish
so the ecu has nothing to do with it? getting a manual ECU would be pointless then?

Re: My ED wont hit redline?

Won't make any more power above 4700rpm...BS...sure it might not make any higher amounts of power but it sure beats the amount of power that the rear wheels are going to be getting in the next gear.
I'd definatey find the source of this problem mate, it might hyave somethign to do with the ECU like you said, or a fuel starvation problem.
BTW, the rev limiter is meant to be at ~5500rpm.
