there should be a mph limiter that you can turn off or set. btw, you need a lot of power to accelerate in 6th gear.

There's no such thing sir. What is the certain speed?

Best regards,

You're going to need a 90* downhill grade to accelerate effectively in 6th gear on a stock Si.

It means in before the lock but whatever.

You hit a wall in 6th when your run out of power to keep accelrating. List the speed so we can know if its the speed limiter or what.

You weren't redlining at 126 mph.

The stock rev limiter allows 134 mph in 5th gear.

Um... Why would you need to go faster than 134? You don't live near the autobahn... I hope you get caught going that fast.
