    Default Rev Limiter on the 3.2 engine

    Having never owned a V6 before my GSi I was just wondering whether
    the power should normally "die off" at the end of the rev range rather than "bouncing" off a limiter like 4 pots?

    If that makes sense.. I've had a few buds!

    Pretty much all engines die off before it hits the limiter, Itshould still be pulling though.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Yeah it pulls but It doesn't "hit" a limiter and bounce off it like other cars ive driven, the power just stops coming half way through the red area. Just wondering if it was normal..

    Never got that close on my 3.2

    On my old 2.2 SRi B I hit the rev limiter in 2nd once and it was like dropping an anchor out of the window! Was one hell of a incentive to get into 3rd quickly
