    Nice upgrade you cant even hear the car on the first WOT pass but its a world of difference on the 2nd WOT pass.

    You shouldn't be bouncing the car off the rev limiter though

    i ripped the old one out, guy i bought it from had one set at 4800; dumb ass wanted to shoot flames, so installed a replacement one, hence no bounce on the after vid.

    So is it safe to say that we can transpose "raise" for "rip"? You raised the rev limiter or raised the speed limiter?

    raised rev limiter to 6200 if i remember right and the speed limiter is set at 185, so yes same thing, but back in the day limiters were not electronic, theywere mechanical hence the term "rip" ohhh didn't know you weere gona get a car history lesson on a kill thred

    Just saying but sarcasm is another common state and there isn't a font to depict it. "Sarcasm is a wonderful way to tell the truth while pretending to be lying!" - Me
