It's a safety feature so you don't blow up your engine.

You posted the same question in the General Section so I'll repeat what I said there and what MG just told you....

The limiter is controlled by the computer. You cannot override it. There's nothing you can buy to get around it. It's there to stop you from over-revving and hurting the engine.

Welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum.
This is untrue, you can buy a several chips / ECU reprograms that will remove it...but why would you want to?

Well, after doing some searching, I'll have to agree that the computer can be reprogrammed. There was a time (showing my age) that programming for Chrysler products was held under lock & key and aftermarket companies had to turn down requests for custom programming. Looks like all that's changed, maybe with the Chrysler buy-out.

Here's a company that can reprogram everything from the 2.4Litre to the 8.3Litre...

You can possibly use the SCT tune to raise the rev limiter when going through the gears, but you'd be mistaken to remove the rev limiter in neutral and park.
