ive tried to see and on my b14 tach it redlines around 7300rpm. so im not sure if its that acurate since its not the same stock engine. also i want to know if i get the msd pills that 7000rpm is ok to hit with it for 5 seconds. is it safe to hit 7000rpm for a few seconds with the msd 6al? so the redline is for sure 7100rpm or higher??

if it helps - s13 engines went unchanged physically (oil pickup with bigger hole and fins on head) from 91 to 99 - but in 96 the redline went from 7600 to 7250

most people rasie it up either way ***.

W10 Avenir ECU binary says 7000rpm soft limit and 7100rpm hard limiter. However, the tacho usually has enough momentum up to swing past 7000rpm which confuses a lot of people :)

All post 1996+ engine binaries have a 7100rpm hard limiter with no soft limiter. Prior to that, RWD SR20DET's had 7500rpm soft and 7600 hard.

i have a w10 avenir and i was wondering what exactly is the redline. i heard its either 7200rpm or 7500rpm. which one is it or what is it really?
I was hitting 7800 all day long on my SR20DE with S4 cams. I am guessing the the W10 SR20DET tops 7200 as same as the original B14 SR20DE (very alike cams)

I will go, with the SR20DET + S4 cams 7500 rpms just to be safe :D

The tach could be off a bit if you were revving out to 8300. Unless you don't have a rev limiter, Calum will tell you that the highest a stock SR20 ECU can rev to (even a Calum one) is 8200. You'd need an SR16 one or NOT rev limit to hit 8300. So your tach might be off by a couple hundred rpm.

I think the highest a calum one ecu can go is 8010 or something lke that.

Who cares there really isn't any reason to rev 99% of sr motors above 8K anyway and if you are reving a sr that high then its built up for it and you'll most likely be running some kind of sick engine management system, which will alllow you to change the rev limiter to anything you like!

btw I have my gti-r rev limiter set to 8K and have yet to hit it. I usually shift at about 7800rpm(according to my autometer digital tach), but my stock tach goes close to 9K:eek2: Talk about being off........

the australian nistune daughterboards can have the rev limit set anywhere, using an sr20de/t ecu. Mines at 8500rpm currently.
Plenty of use taking the VE past 8000 with the right cams and valvetrain!
