The 5,500/6,000 limit is launch control. It makes it easier to just smash the gas pedal and get the RPM to a good launch spot. This can be changed with tuning hardware!

Eh, not exactly. The 5800k limit is there because revving to 8200k without a load on the motor is pretty rough on the internals.

First, comment...Dont do ricer revs please...There really is no point of reving your motor that high. It's just stupid and does nothing!!! :facepalm:

The rev limit of 6K was put on there for a reason....

Second, must be your first manual car..I think you mean it makes that whining noise when you are in reverse...It's normal.


BTW, welcome and you have lots to read upon! So read on before you do anything you should not be doing. :dancingcoolsmiley:
