    I shoulda figured! The first changes I made was to disabled CAGS and bump the speed limiter. Took it out for a quick spin - and the car feels like it cuts out (rev limiter type feel almost) when the tach reads about 5800 - where it used to rev limit at about 6200 on the tach...

    Now I'm looking for the rev limiter setting... not sure I know where it is. Odd that it would have changed tho, I didn't change that.

    I am going to pull down the stock tune files... because it seems I didn't actually save my initial read. Even tho I did hit save and named the file... I'll set back the CAGS and speed limiter stuff and see if that makes it go back to normal.

    The stock tune file on HPT's site doesn't have the default CAGS settings saved...

    Anyone have the default CAGS settings saved somewhere?

    I finally found a stock 02 WS6 tune in HTP's repository. I'm comparing now...

    I can't believe I jacked up my first save... UGH.

    Here's the changes I made to my first .hpt file that caused the motor to behave like its rev limiter kicked in at 5800 (there is also an audible sucking sound that happens when the motor "shutdown" at that RPM):

    Main File : stock 02 ws6.hpt
    Compare File: 1st.hpt

    Main File Parameters : 540
    Compare File Parameters: 540

    Parameters Compared: 536
    Differences : 7
    Similarities: 529

    Transmission
    Manual C.A.G.S.
    General
    C.A.G.S. Disable TPS 25 : 0 %
    C.A.G.S. Min Coolant Temp 171 : 32 F
    C.A.G.S. Enable Speed 15 : 0 mph
    C.A.G.S. Disable Speed 20 : 0 mph
    C.A.G.S. Enable Baro 76 : 0 kPa
    C.A.G.S. Disable Baro 78 : 0 kPa

    none of that affects the RPM limiter.

    here's where you change the RPM limiter

    I'll also throw in a tip here. After going through all of this with ls1edit and now hptuners it pays big dividends of properly naming your logs and flash files. A habit I started with edit that I still do with hptuners is keeping a document in word and I keep track of every adjustment I make under the flash name because it's quicker to read than the compare log. I also came up with a system of naming my flashfiles that works for me. I number the flash and put the date in it. Then I do the same for my entry into the word document and the log is named with a date. That way I can look everything up and know exactly what I did to what flash on what date and using which log.
    Example.
    hp23.6.30.07.hpt
    That's my current flash. It's the 23'rd flash and I made it on 6/30/07. I have a log file that's named 6.30.07 that goes with it. If I do more than one log in a day such as an idle log then a driving log I'll add it at the end of the file name such as 6.30.07.2 6.30.07.3 so on and so forth.
    That makes looking back at a log a month or year from now way easier to figure out what you did and why.

    Thats a great idea too, Orion. I work in IT regularly, so I'd already started something similar, but its a great point to make anyways!
