launch limiter accuracy

Post by k20z3kid »

Hey guys

I just started using the launch limiter and I was wondering if it is normal for it to not be entirely accurate. I set both of the values to 2300 RPM and it seems to cut at around 2500 RPM. I know it is not a big difference at all, but I am just wondering if its supposed to be exactly accurate or not.

Let me guess your going full throttle arent you?? try giving it lighter throttle, it will be quicker and more accurate

The ECU is accurate, the gauge cluster is not. If you look at your datalogs you will see it working.

Ahhh okay cool. Hmm.. isn't that a potential danger? If the tachometer is reading higher than it is actually at couldn't Honda get in trouble?

no its not a danger, if anything its safer. think about it this way, if it reads high, your tach says 8600 but your really at 8300, where as it reads low and your tach is at 8600 and your really at 9000 rpms.....which would you rather have
