In most cases there is no power to be made in the upper rpm ranges in these cars plus you have to deal with a motor with a very long stroke which at high rpm can spell disaster. I know the msd box rev limiter in my car is set at 6000 which I feel is more than adequate.

If you to need to go faster than 130mph or rev higher than 6000rpms, this car isn't for you.

my megasquirt top speed was 148mph thank you very much.


also yes, id rather have the rev limiter at 5.5k since it pretty much falls flat on its face after that. (infact the rev limiter on my car its set at 5.8k)

the only way to raise the limiter would be to find someone to program a custom chip for your ecu. megasquirt would probably be a better option at this point.

no clue. its probably not possible and if i had to guess there is no fuel/timing maps past the redline.

you could make a standalone look stock if you wanted though.

Indeed. I'll take pics of my engine bay (dirty as it may be). It looks stock to me.
