Rev. Limiter Cut Off

Is it normal for the rev limiter in an 2003 V6 to cut off at around 4000 RPMs? THanks in advance for the INFO...

The Rev limiter in a stock 2003 should be in the low 6000's shouldnt it?

Hell, my 98 has a limit of about 5300... and 99+'s have higher redlines than pre99's do.

are you talkin in neutral or in gear?

there is a neutral and in gear rev limit.

In neutral, you can only rev to say ~4000 rpms.

In gear its like 5200 rpms.

I was in park when it cut out at 4000 RPMs. Will that be the same as being in Neutral? If so, I guess my car is G to G.

I was reving up my 98 one morning in nuetral and I pulled 5200RPMs in a 5speed.

Next time I get a chance I'll try 5300. Myabe it's there.

i can rev my car which is a 2001 all the way to red line in neutral but i can not hold the revs there i think the max is what was previously stated at 4k. If you try to hold it at 5k it will just bounce back between 4 and 4.5k. The red line for the 2001+ is 5750 i think but i have had my tach say it is at 6k but we all know how accurate those things are.
