REV LIMITER I THINK?

How come when my car is in park or neutral and I rev the engine, it only revs to about 5.2 k right to the point of v tec and it stops. Why?

That response from your engine is what can be rightfully called a built in Honda reputation saver. If the ecu senses that you are doing something that may harm the engine like reving to high an rpm in neutral ,it will go into a protect mode by imposing a appropriate rev limit and prevent you from hurting your engine. Some people piggy back aftermarket devices on to the ecu that eliminate such protections so they can rag on their engines with impunity with out any undo interference from Honda's built in protections.

Re: REV LIMITER I THINK?

You're not pushing the throttle down hard enough. Most people don't know this but there's a little notch that saves it but if you stomp hard enough, it bypasses it and it shuts off the rev limiter and you can rev it to 12,000 before it becomes a problem. Just make sure you do it right when you crank it up when the engine is cold so you don't overheat it.
