Does anyone have some of the following stats?

Stock '00 M coupe rev limit?
Dinan SC rev limit?
Stock speed gov.?
Dinan speed gov.? or Removed?

Also curious what form of rev limiting the car uses. Is there a fuel cutoff on the M coupe? Wouldnt this be a bad thing on any FI application (lean condition, high revs)? This thing revs pretty quick and I dont want to hurt it. Checked the Dinan paperwork and couldnt find any of the above info.

Thanks, any help appreciated

First off the stock rev is around 7000 Dinan MAY up the limit a bit morestock seppd gov is 155 I believe Dinan usually removes teh governor. Of all things to be asking about a blower why ask about a rev limiter or speed governor??? Yup its a fuel cut off. They actually dont rev that quick unlee you are stomping the gas whihc is wrong anyway. YOu have you REGULATE throttle. YOu will break more than you think by sudden surges of power. I know of a guy with a 600 HP Mcoupe and he will be the first to tell you that pedal to the floor will rip out driveshaft components all day long <br><img src="" height=40 width=100>

Im concerned about bumping the rev limiter in the 1st or 2nd gear. It comes up pretty quick sometimes. My experience with forced induction and nitrous tells me that if fuel cuttoff is the means of rev limiting thats a bad thing. Im just concerned about hitting that rev limit and going lean in one or more cylinders <BOOM> The top speed isnt realy an issue, but missing a shift can happen all over the map.
