i think some cars do and some dont......a lot of people say they have one at 6250 but mine has never rev limited and i have rapped first and second to 6500+
Lol, wrong. I bet you're using the stock tach? Get a shift light on it and set it for 6500 and see if it ever reaches it. Now, if the car's been tuned it may have had the limit raised, but it will have a chip hanging out of the computer if it's been tuned. If the car is EFI and it's running, then it has a 6250 rev limiter built in, it's a fuel shut off and ignition cut out from what I know. I've been told by countless new'bs that they don't have a rev limiter in their car, and their car is 'special' because it doesn't have a rev limiter. lol. A buddy and I had a chuckle over this the other night. We were sitting around bsing about this subject, and it seems the honda guys all say the same thing. Factory tachs are not what you should base your shifts or rpm's by. They are there for the average non car guy to use to gauge where to shift when normally driving. If you race your car, buy a shift light at minimum or get a tach that is accurate. I've buried many a factory tach on my dyno only to show the owner it made it to 5800 or 6k. Most with stock cams won't go too far past 5600, the springs will act as a limiter. Hope this clears it up for everyone.
