1.7 Rev Limiter

Postby SandStorm » Thu Feb 16, 2017 10:07 pm

We all know these 1.7 are awesome. But I notice it is very easy for the car to hit the Rev Limiter in 5th gear.
Is there a way to increase the Rev Limiter to 7000/7200 like in the FRP?

Racing or normal use?
If normal use (e.g. motorway), sounds like a slipping clutch!
Otherwise I presume it would be an ECU remap?

While it indeed, does have a slipping clutch in aggressive driving (I need to replace it this year asap), in a normal highway ride, it manages do max at 220km/h and then hit the Limiter at the spec 6750rpm +/-

to get 7000 you'll definitely need racing puma remap minimum id say...
...or you could disconnect the switch/wire in the engine bay, but you''ll have no speedo.. lol
stories of it damaging your gearbox and driveshafts though if left unplugged for too long without the map.

Well, more like it must be true because the little blue Reference numbers on Wikipedia, as always, link to the Reference sources of the info.

In this case, to these - http://www.carfolio.com/specifications/ ... ?car=38478
