The coomon/proper term is "shade tree" mechanic... Street mechanic just don't sound right. Almost too professional, not allowing for beer...

no one should become jealous, proper credit should be given to the person that helped you out.

Well at least you know now not to rev in Park/Neutral. Even though I told my brother he shouldn't, he continued to do so. But his car didn't have a rev limiter, and saw 6000rpms every time.

IMO, 4,000 RPMs is WAY too high of a rev limiter anyway. AT 4,000 RPMs, what'* the point in even having a rev limiter???

IMO, it should be set to 2,000 RPMs.

Yes the PCM has a 4000 Rpm rev limiter... And a 6200 Rpm fuel cut off, thats if you ever get there tho..

No point in revving to 4k anyhow...

I think the 3.1 Chevy'* were the earliest GM'* to get the limiter... The 60* V6'* would rev too easy... and some of the * Owners * were blowing them up..

Over the years the controls have become more adaptive..

So Revving to 4k is not good... Yes GM installed a Rev Limiter on all bonnevilles 92+

I've tested mine in the past, with and without the Hypertech in. I got to ~4500 before I chickened out.

There are differences in the model years... I think its more related to the PCM..

My 91 has no rev limiter... Just a fuel cutoff.... Don't ask me how I know this
And I wasn't free revving it

Apparently at above a certain speed, the rev limiter is disabled in my car when in neutral. Ive discovered this accidentally a couple times, such as when rolling past friends and them not knowing its me. Nothing quite like a 6500rpm free-rev to scare the crap out of you.
