2000 auto zx3 mods: FS race header, flexpipe and 'stealth' exhaust, U/D pulley, Diablosport Chip, and a custom intake
I have heard that the CEL comes on within a short amount of time of installing a race header, but mine hasn't came on for about 1,000 miles so far. Is that normal or just a fluke?
I will eventually get my diablosport chip reburned for the ecu of the 5 speed I am swapping, but my main question is the rev limiter on it. I have different gauges and I had to recalibrate the needles afterwards, so I was nearly on according to the digital display. But when I mash on it, it won't shift until it pins itself at 7k rpms. I thought the needles were just off, but when I use the digital tach on the lcd, it reads right on. Is it normal/possible for FS to put the rev limiter up at 7k?
Well, that last post answers you shift question, sound's like your tach is pretty close to where it should be. As far as the CEL goes it's a crap shoot if your not using a cheater. Everyonr I know of who's running either a race header or ORP without a cheater has eventually got a CEL, so I'm sure you will too at some point.
