1. At what revs does the rev limiter kick in? Mine kicks in at an indicated 5,700 or so.

2. Under hard acceleration, 5/8 warning comes on. It goes away after a few seconds.

i' ve never driven one, but logic would suggest that neither of those things are normal.

Maybe the $60k it had spent on it wasn't enough?   :tilt:

the bank warning has 3 stages of control.... the "normal" limiter is up around 8000rpm I think, but with a bank failure detected it pulls things back until it actually shuts a bank down.

Usually, it's a thermocouple control unit problem, and you can just bypass it. But you have to be sure the cats are healthy before you do that.

Also, there's a better than 50% chance the rev counter isn't accurate.

I might bring it over.

I dont' think it's the rev counter as when limiter kicks in, the engine doesn't 'feel' 8,000rpm by any means. it certainly 'feels' like it cuts in way too early.

isn't sandro your mechanic? i would have thought he'd have something like that worked out in a very short time. the engine management still wasn't too complex back then.

I like to have multiple options. Besides, he doesn't have the diagnostic tool for the 348.
