High end revs

Postby Guest » Mon Mar 17, 2003 12:15 am

im sure everyones car does this, but when i floor my car in either neutral or park, the revs go up and then it kind of gallops so to speak. im sure its the governor or somethin, but i wanted to know if there was any way to free up those high end revs...sort of like when dragsters do a neutral drop and the revs just stay steady before they drop it into first...????

Yeah, it's the rev limiter.  You'd need a performance chip to get rid of it.  But remember, it's there for a reason....

if you are talking about reving it up and droping it into drive on an automatic you are going to break something.  The way dragracers do it is they put it in first, hold the brake down, raise the rpms to where they want, and let go of the brake and floor it at the same time.  This gives you torque multiplycation (probably wrong spelling) and a great take off.  Usually they have high rpm torque converters though.  I wouldn't recommend doing this up to a very high rpm with a stock converter.

another thing, the reason its (the governor) there is that under no load an engines valves will float if there is to much rpm causing accelerated wear between the valve, rocker arm, pushrod, and sometimes cam.  It also causes major engine breakdown if the valve floats enough to hit the piston.  Also, valve float can cause the valve seat to wear excessivly.

yeah these cars dont have very high redlines, its not good to run them that hard all the time, I have floored my car lke from a stop, but never in neutral, that scares the hell out of me.
