You sure it’s the rev limiter? What gear were you in?
Ok, if you were in 6th gear and the actual rev limiter stopped you from accelerating past 120mph, the clutch is slipping, the tire/wheel diameter is much smaller than stock, or the final drive ratio is not stock.I was in 6th gear. As I watched digital speedo I saw the rpms qaapproach redline and the engine c
Vehicle is 100% stock.
Well if you’re at the rev limiter (ie 6500rpm) in top gear and only seeing 120mph, then the speedometer or speed sensor is “bad”, or the clutch is slipping. The MyKey setting has nothing to do with the rpm limiter, just the road speed.the vehicle is 100% stock. .. as far as the clutch slipping >>> no indication of such.
The “speed limiter” only affects revs in that when the throttle is modulated by the speed limiter, the revs follow the speed. It’s a manual transmission after all. The “rev limiter” functions with completely different input and output parameters. If you do your own tuning as I do, you should be able to see the functions performing in a data log.Ah, to me they are two different methods of limiting revs/speed. The speed limiter does control revs, otherwise it could not control speed. I've had the rev limit feel smooth too after using the over rev zone too long and it was slowing me down to the lower limit before a braking zone.
The function is active, yes. A stock vehicle will not see a problem at sea level or at 4000 ft. At very high elevation 9-10k(?) you will see/feel a loss of power as the turbo(s) may approach the over speed ratio set in the tune.the air at 4000ft is thinner than sea level, your ecu will pull boost and timing to keep the engine within its operating range.
does it do this even at sea level?
Yes, I think I asked this way earlier because it did and is the most likely cause at this point. If the guy is indeed 70+, he likely won’t respond because he feels like the idiot he is…Or it was actually 4th gear…. Cuz the math checks out
