The most ridiculous and damaging thing you can do to your engine is to free rev it like that. Reving it cold is like pouring salt in a gashing wound.

In my opinion, the rev limiter should be set at 2,000 RPMs. There'* never a reason to rev an engine higher than that.

What purpose would you want to remove the limiter for? It is there to help your car live longer.

i dont think the bore could be inches, and he would have to re-program the computer? Did he get an aftermarket one?
