    Question about rev limiter and shift points

    I have an a4 2001 Z28 Camaro B4C, and I keep reading on various posts that there is a rev limiter somewhere arround 6500 rpm and the shift points are somewhere arround 5500 maby not sure if those numbers are very accurate. But anyway I have seen my tach at the 7000 mark, and I always drive in drive or overdrive, and it seems to shift right arround 5800 from 1st to 2nd and from second to third arround 6200 and I have seen close to 7000 in third.

    I was just wondering if the highway patrol that I bought it from would have had a diffrent tune then stock or if this is normal for an ls1car.

    also

    I have also been considering getting a tune somehow, mostly just to make the transmission shift a little harder, and with the preditor does it make your car always shift hard ot does it tune so that it is a little smother under normal driving and then when you go WOT or close make it shift hard and fast.

    thanks for any info.

    Are you sure that you are the next owner after the highway patrol? Because it could have been modded. Revs seem kinda high. But I think that the Highway patrol removes the top speed limiter for obvious reasons and move the rev limiter to 6800-7000. I could be wrong though.

    However, this is definitely not in the options list for b4c. Check it out:

    yea, i am absolutally sure that I am the only owner other then the kansas state highway patrol, becuase I bought it from them after it was decommisioned.

    Thanks for the brochure, it had a lot of stuff that I have been wondering about. I am not really woried about the rev thing I was just curious.

    hey, its probably a good thing anyway!!

    I only know this stuff because I was very close to getting a B4c myself but I got a real good deal on the SS. Enjoy her, B4Cs are pretty rare. I think they only make like 500-700 each year or so.

    BTW, Welcome to the forums!!
