Default Am I just stupid or what ?!

OK, I have almost 10k miles on my car now and just yesterday I realized that if you have the car in Park or Neutral that it won't let you rev above 4k RPM. The car's an Autostick. Is this normal and I just never noticed it, or is there something amiss? It revs all the way to redline when driving, and seems fine otherwise. I guess they must do this to prevent an overboost condition and prevent idiots from grenading the engine.

Jack,
I have a non-turbo and it does the same thing. A protective measure so you can't over-rev it and float the valves and bend internal parts.

There is a rev limiter in the pcm program for
park and neutral.

I got scared the first time I ran into this also! I installed the BOV, and went to rev it up to hear what it sounded like, and all I got was stuttering engine noises (once I hit 4K)!

I have 11k on my GT and just realized this when I reved it to hear the newly installed BOV. That is hilarious.

Huh, makes sense I guess.

Soon there won't be a gas pedal, just program the destination and buckle up.

Thanks for the info.

EVERY DCX PRODUCT WITH AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION HAS THAT REV LIMITER.
