A rev limiter is designed to keep you from over revving your engine. All SCís
and XR7ís with the 3.8L supercharged engine redline at 5000 rpm. Those cars
equipped with the manual transmission do not rev limit until 6200 rpm though.
The 4R70W equipped cars rev limit at approximately 5500 rpm. This means
that in both applications, you would be able to rev your car higher than the
designed red line. But once you hit the rev limiter the EEC will cut spark to the
engine so that your rpms do not go any higher.
