Can't feel the "Lift"
I tried my car last night for the first time since i got it.. 1st gear went to 5.5 rmp.. didn't feel anything.. 2nd gear 6 rpm.. nothing.. and the rpm were bouning of the rev limiter!!!
what's wrong? why it bouncing of the rev limiter at 6.000 rpm.. and can't feel nothing??? HELP...

Autos don't really hit lift. An automatic GTS is about as fast as an Auto GT.

GTS auto's do hit lift.

Your rev limiter should not be at 6000 RPM. Make sure your car is fully warmed up. It should be somewhere around 8000RPM.

Shift it manually using the console shifter, not shiftronic. Start from 10MPH in L1 & up-shift as it reaches redline in each gear. thumbsup

6000 rpm and you bouncing off the limiter?

do you mean the gear changed automatically at 6k rpm?

lock the gears with the sports-shift

or else id say you got urself a GT... idunno

yeah your limiter kicks in at 7100 rpms cold just like it does if you rev in neutral.

another cool thing about having the PFC is I dont have that problem and I can rev to fuel cut in nuetral. lol
