Hey

how do i know if my 84 5mgte has a rev limiter? it's a european (danish) model with no o2 sensor - if that has anything to say ...

i didn't think our cars had rev limiters, if so whats it at, i've red lined in both my 84 and my 85 and never hit a rev limiter, maybe i'm a chicken but i'm not gonna keep redlining it.

Its around 6800 rpm you have to go past redline to hit it. I hit mine occasionally when autocrossing no ventilation in my block yet, I'm keeping my fingers crossed as more and more miles rack up and I keep racing the car.

yeah i've never even hit mine autocrossing. I have got up to 6000 but our autocross courses don't let me get over 2nd so usually that is as high as i get. but its nice to know i actually have one, i'm not gonna try to hit it though.

Yeah they tend to be pretty big and fast here. We have one site that is actually a real road course that they add cones to and call it an autocross, very fun!!!!!!!

I'll make a wager that the 5M's do have a rev limiter. I hit it a few times running hillclimbs here in PA. Don't ask me what the rev limit is, due to the fact I don't have a tach in the car. Hell, I don't even have a dash or interior either. Just an oil pressure and water temp gauge.

I have a tachometer in my car but it doesn't always work, on cold mornings its really slow and sometimes sticks....lol.

I'd love a faster autocross almost every car keeps it in second here, we only have a parking lot at the ohio state university to run in.....so really we can't make them any faster.....if we had a different location maybe we could....

yes 5m's at least in the US do have a rev limiter...I know my 85 hits it at like 6600 rpm...everyone says it's supposed to be higher then that but that is when mine kicks in.

accidentally hit 7000 rpms one day sliding in the rain, damn sure didn't want to see if it would go past that ( was in my '85 Silpra P )
