7,500?? That is strange. The rev-limiter kicks in around 6,500-ish RPM on my car (manual.) Are you manually shifting the car, or just leaving it in "D"?

I dont think so, unless you mean 6500 rpm. then its normal but if it is shifting at 7500 thats a problem and is probably bad for the engien and the tranny

Yes, it is normal for auto's to suck. ;) In all seriousness though, that's awesome. My stupid stock rev limiter is 7100. Can't wait to get the ECU. Just gotta make up my mind weither to snatch up some JUN cams or do the nitrous.

I think they set the limit that low for emissions or fuel puposes. I can't remember. BTW, are you sure your tach is accurate? Some of them display a rather optimistic rpm when they go that high sometimes.

i've banged it off the rev limter at the top of first shifting manualy. it seems that for me the limit is ~6900 rpms.

my old 91 max se would over rev its self (this was very rare). redline was ~6K (so was fuel cut off). it reved its self to 64-6500 on a hard down shift. I don't know why it did because it didn't make any power past 5K....
