how does the rev limiter operate in our trucks?
Spark or fuel?

I ask because when I was doing my burnout at the strip this weekend, it was limiting the rpms at one point, but it wasn't making the missing sounds like some of the other cars where.
It actually limited the RPM level very smoothly.
I had it in 1, started spinning the tires, it would approach 5000 rpms, drop to 4700, then back to 5000, drop to 4700, then I let off.

Just wondering how it's done.

thanks

fuel gets cut. that's why our limiters suck in boosted or juiced apps. the last thing you want in that situation is to go lean. It's best to use and MSD and set the limiter just below the factory limiter, no lean condition that way.

thanks, that's what I thought since most of the other pro steet cars had the missing (spark disable) sound when they hit the rev limiter.

Good to know if I ever decide to bolt on a blower.

One benefit of the fuel method is not getting an excessive amout of fuel built up prior to the next time the plug fires.
