    Hello,
    Last year I'd install Ignitech TCIP4 v88 module on my Vmax. I'm wondering how high rpm is safe for my engine. Now rpm limit is 10200 rmp. What do you think about it?

    Unless your racing 9500 rpm is a good safe limit. On the track with stock gearing you'd set it higher so your still in the power band when you up shift otherwise your over revving your motor with very little benefit.

    I have my shift light set at 8700 then later added a Dyna 3000 which I originally set the rev limiter to 9200 but I'm setting the rev limit lower this year to 9000. I hit the limiter most often in second gear and sometimes 3rd but really no reason to push the engine all the time like I used to, limiting the R's will add life to the engine.
