    Try driving down the road and turn the key to the off position. If You are in neutrel the car will completely die. But if You are in gear the motor will still be turning rpm's. (Because the trans is forcing the motor to turn.)

    In other words You can drive up to 100mph, cut the motor off, have a friend climb out the window and rip the ECU out, and then throw the car into first, the trans will still force the motor turn at the same rpms as the drivetrain.
    You do realize that a rev limiter is electronically controlled, not mechanical. So all that stuff you just wrote doesn’t mean anything . There wouldnt be a rev limiter if the car was off.

    This Mustang driver walks into a auto parts store and asks the guy at the cashier,"Can I buy that chrome air cleaner?" He replies,"No im sorry we don't sell to Mustang drivers." So he goes home and sells his car for a Dodge. he goes back and asks" Can I buy that chrome air cleaner?" "No im sorry we don't sell to Mustang drivers" So he goes home and does the same thing with a Chevy, nissan, Pontiac . The last time he goes in and says "How do you always know who I am?" He replies "Because thats a hubcap."

    if its hitting the rev limiter, its not over revving now is it? Its just at the safe limit.

    The only way to over rev the motor is mechanically, with the transmission driving the engine. Even if the computer cuts the fuel and spark the motor is still going to spin at whatever speed the the transmission makes it.

    If you missed a shift in your ford, it would do the same thing. You may have heard the computer cutting fuel and spark, but it would still over rev the engine. No electronics could stop it unless they prevented the missed shift in the first place.

    you best read some more.
    most aftermarket cams make plenty of power after 6k. mine does. dyno graphs show it.

    when you downshift, the rev limiter doesn't kick in. the rev limiter works only during acceleration.
