Rev limiter

YOU that don;t think the rev limiter on a mustang gt should be eliminated should be driving grand dads buick . It;s not the fact that i want to top it out . i just want to get the full worth of the engine before shifting gears . It.s not going to hurt that motor bringing it up to 6 grand before you advance through the gears. The smart *** that has no valid answer on this forum, and obviously thinks he is a know it all should open ears and shut mouth .

It's set by manufacturers to keep the engine from over-reving in a missed shift scenerio.

Your Mustang, and in these cases (2005 to 2010), a factory waranty is long gone, so set it as you wish.

Dyno your car, you will find it probably doesn't even make power up to the limiter. For example my limiter is set at 6050, that's where I put it, but I stop making power at 5400rpm. So realistically if you are wanting to always be in the power band shift where you stop making power at.

And yes it's there in case you miss a shift and rev it up, or you might rev it to 9k or something and float a valve.

Don't you want to set your rev limiter to where the next shift will put you at the beginning of the torque band?

On want and have it set based on my hearing the sound of the motor. anyone should know by the sound of that motor weather your over revving it or not. Remember the old days when there were no computers to tell you or your engine it;s time to advance to the next gear? Which brings me back to my last quote, " open ears and shut mouth"
