Hi,

Just wondering what the VZ SS rev limiter is set at? ive had it to 6500rpm and it didn cut out. Im sure people here have hit it a few times.

Thanks

I've got an auto VY SS. A couple of times I've held it in 1st and "accidently" :whistling lost traction in the wet and over-revved it.

It didn't hit a rev-limiter as such but changed into 2nd for me - even though the shifter was still in 1st. Ouch - I won't be doing that too often!

I didn't see the tacho too well since I was too busy concentrating on the road, but it was at around 6000 rpm.

the rev limiter is set at 6250rpm, did the car really hit 6500 or was the needle shooting past....(this is also common)

Its ok to put it into first and put your foot down the car changes around the 6200rpm mark and then goes into second automatically, if you keep your foot flat it will hit the rev limiter in 2nd gear.. You just have to be carefull when slowing down as it will go back to first and you will get compression lock up (tyres will screach).

You can't hurt your car by giving it all you can ( in a straight line ) that's why there is a rev limiter:thumbsup:

Is that something that you change when you do an edit tune?

Yes it can be changed in a tune... but unless you were going to do some serious work to the motor you wouldn't change it. I'm not sure what a mechanically stock LS1 can rev to without damaging it but I doubt they'd pull anything like 7000rpm safely.

1 of many things u adjust, but u only change this if the vehicle keeps producing power above this rpm......

a few other things that are adjusted as well. eg me personally i like taking away the auto upshift, when holding the shifter in first.

turning on cooling fans earlier. and other things like change the time frame and tables for warning systems, eg running hot, or oil pressure dropping.....etc.

But all in all a very noticeable difference in a car, once tuned.......that will leave u asking yourself, why did i wait so long.

LOL! That's exactly what happened to me - AND I nearly went through the windscreen! :D
