Hey guys
So I converted my ed xr6 to manual all went well, only problem is when driving the car and you get to the rev limiter area
Instead of just bouncing off it, it will just completely cut power until the car slows down to about 10km/h then I can let the clutch go and it will start driving again.

Wouldn't have a clue what the problem is I tried swapping a few ecus over that I had lying around and they all do it
Oh and the car is dual fuel if that could be part of the problem and it does it on petrol and gas.

Hi,

A simple work-around is put in another limiter that will cut in a few hundred revs lower.

the best thing to do is dont rev the thing so hard, its not going to go any faster or make more power by reving it to the limiter...

It doesnt just bounce off the rev limiter and keep going it completely cuts the power until the car is nearly stoped then it goes again, every other e series ive had has never done this sooo something has to be wrong, and f**k if i know what it could be :x

Hi,

My thinking is if you are overtaking and someone is coming the other way fast, you dont want to lose all power. If it cuts for a moment you can grab another gear up.

My thinking is it's on gas and doesn't make any power at those revs anyway, so change gears WAY before that and you won't have a problem.

If everything else functions correctly, you don't have a problem.
