having the limiter at 8600 on the pfc wont stop a mis shift, even if the stock limter is set to 7800 (02 gts) it still couldn't stop mis shifts.

MWR claims 9k was all they could get the stock valve train to take pushing the levels of safe. The problem isn't that the engine can't take it, it's that the valves begin to float.. upgraded valve springs and valves should fix this problem thou.
