it was going awesome untill i noticed the engine and exhaust was making a funny noise and i just thought for a second "shouldnt it be hitting the rev limiter by now" as i looked down the Tacho was pinned to the 6,000rpms mark so i quickly shifted to 2nd!
and way a couple of days latter i thought to my self well if it hasnt got a rev limiter then does it have a speed limiter so i found a nice long strectch and again all the way over to 220 and it was still pulling!!!!
so would you guys have any idea's why my ECU doesnt have a rev limiter or speed limiter it is a stock manual ECU that i bought off ebay!
also should i be worried about it reving to 6,000RPMS????
It should have a speed limiter at about 180kmh.
And it should have a rev limiter anywhere between 5700-6000 rpm
dont be to worried about reving to 6000, just dont do it to much.
I do it but i also am prepared if it did blow up.
a second hand motor is only $650 with a 3 month warranty which aint bad imo.
and you should no with in 3 months if you got a dud or not.
