Agree, and sometimes it is well past the peak torque and better to be in the next gear.On a stock engine, there is no need to remove the rev lmiter. By the time a stock engine hits the rev limiter, it is done making power anyway. The engine should never hit the rev limiter anyway...... the trans should shift just before redline if everything is operating normally.
Yes, so if one would want to launch it, I will rev it up to some 5500 rpm in N and then drop it on gear (sliping the clutch, manual transmission preferably). RPM's will drop to 4400 and the extra rotation inertia will help start moving the wheels.Duratec 30 peak torque 4400 rpm
