Is this a 6 or 8? - You might be able to get Pete (xr9ute) to fix the problem using twEECer or something similar - would remove the limit.

Of course, your not allowed to do that are you...

Good question.

One answer is to use LPG - the limiter is Fuel based, not ignition so LPG will rev higher

Thats hard to remove. the twEECer might let you up the limit. Thats the only way out at this point.

its a device that plugs into the J3 port (not sure its J3...) on the ECU. Allows ECU paramaters to be rewritten. In your case, would allow you to lift the rev limit.

maybe a resistor inline could trick the ECU into thinking less revs are being used...
