No Limits

hey guys
as most would know i have changed my car to manual a few weeks ago and love!
the other day seens i had got use to the shift pattern and bedded in the clutch i thought it was time to hang a ****ing rip snorter of a burnout out side of a mates place!
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????

cheers Notty

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.

Wink Re: No Limits

Limiter should be at 5700rpm or thereabouts. Corresponds to the headflow dropoff. Interesting that the Eb2 head flowed more than the AU head!
