Rev Limiter?

3595 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  raitchison
First off I'd like to say hello to all since this is my first post. The 4500 miles in 50 days have been wonderful.

Now onto my question regarding redline... I am wondering what the true redline is and also if there's a rev limiter on the 3. The reason I ask is that today in second and the tach was in the low 7000 range with speed low 60s. It was a mistake on my part ,however would like to know if a limiter is in place and when it occurs. From searching the forum it seems the answer is 7200-7500.

Thanks for any info. :D

I hit the rev limiter around 7200-7300rpm's once. Haven't hit since and don't want too. Redline is 6500rpm's.
Mine kicks in at 7500...95 mph in 3rd equals 7500 :twisted:
I've hit the rev limiter quite a few times, pretty much at least once ever time I autocross.
