Dual-Stage Rev Limiter

Hey I'm getting tunes put on my SCT tuning chip, and I noticed that one of the options is setting a dual-stage rev limiter.

I have a faint idea of what it is, so could anyone explain it to me, and more importantly, what should i have it set at?

It is basically a form of a 2-step system. A very very basic sort of 2-step.

To be honest, I'd leave it alone and get a stand-alone 2-step if you are looking for one. What it is made to do you set the rpm to what you want to launch at and it cuts ignition at that rpm so you can leave consistently everytime.

I agree, unless you're racing your car all the time, leave it alone. It serves no purpose for normal driving. It's solely for when staging so you can just floor it and have it rev to the low limiter for launch so you don't have to worry about trying to hold the RPMs each time.

Re: Dual-Stage Rev Limiter

yea plus if you have traction issues you have to feather it a bit perhaps anyway so not sure how it would help you in that case
