  • This would remove my REV limiter?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/00-01...spagenameZWDVW

    I have been hitting my revlimiter going from 1st to 2nd a lot lately. If it was 7000 I would be fine but it is 6500 I think.

    yep, the auto ecu will remove or raise the rev limit a lot. it says that one is for a 4 door so it would have a lower top speed when swapped in.

    why are you trying to rev out to 7000 anyway? you don't have cams or your cam timing altered any to warrant that.

      x2 the motor won't last

      i thought about putting a auto ecu in my car with y new build but i doubt it

        I wouldn't suggest it. there was talk that it might advance ignition timing, which you dont' want to happen most likely.

          So you want to shift at 7000rpm on a daily basis? What for exactly? Do you not want the car to last?

            yeah i couldn't remember but i knew it was something with timing

              no just when I am racing. I have a smaller sterring wheel so it blocks part of my RPM gauge, So I drive by the sound of my engine and can usually get it. But some times I am a little slow and if it was a little higher I wouldn't miss it.

                Just learn to drive better. Practice makes perfect. Take it to the drag strip or road course and work on it then you wont have to swap out ECUs

                  i swapped my ecu about a year. after running at the strip and shifting at 7200, my timing has a lot of sack in it now. but it had 160k on it anyway.
                  with the auto ecu, my 1/4 times improved 6 tenths. also, i used more fuel on a daily basis, but not because i was shifting higher, i think the auto ecu changes a few things, most notably the rev limiter and timing.

                      +1, if you can't shift before the 6750 limiter, then removing the rev limiter isn't the way to go. BTW these cars make practically no power after 6500 unless you are plenty modified. Even Mike at SDA said to shift at 6500 with his street cams in.

                        +1 the limiter is there for a reason.

                          look at you guys....
                          I smell something fishy...

                          You guys must be pussies.

                          what if he were to use an auto PCM, control the limiter with an DIS2
                          and also use the timing retard function?

                            Well sure, what if? He made no mention of any of that in his post. He wants to remove the limiter so he doesn't hit it anymore which is not a good reason for removing the limiter.

                              Hmm I see your point guys.

                              thank you for your input.

                              How hard would it be to install a tachometer with a shift light that I could set to 6500?
