Hey Im a car dummie.. whats a lower rev limiter do?
On the 2002 GTS, the car cannot rev past redline. On other model years, you can rev past redline, to 8350 RPM.
This makes it easier to "land lift," meaning when you change from 1st to 2nd gear, the revs stay above 6500 RPM, meaning the car never drops out of the powerband.
the 2002 GTS is like .5 or .6 seconds slower because of this limiter.
