the stock rev limit does not need to be maintained, it can be raised, if the build requires it. I may actually have 2 ECU's running, not at the same time, but interchangable.. one for sensible, road use, where if anything bad should happen the stock ECU is still there for insurance reasons, And maybe a MSII tuned by Dima, cause he is a nut case.



to raise the rev limmit past about 6200rpm will need alot of money spent on the bottom end.

if yo keep a stock bottom end aim for peak power to be made around 5800rpm, that give you a bit past the peak rpm to play with.
it's going to come down to the head and cam you use
