I heard auto's don't have the limiter. Someone correct me if I'm wrong on that.

well they dont have a rev limiter, but they have a speed governor. if you bypass the speedsensor.. on AUTO.. your car wont change gears. and will runny crappy if you change gears manually. (L > 2 > D) so the speed sensor trick onlly works on manual trannies.

i havent touched the car's governor. the car is a semi stock 89 sohc auto coupe. ive got the silvia front end with the turbo bumper so i ran custom intake to the opening in the bumper from the stock airbox with a k&n air cleaner. it also has a shaved head and ive got the timing advanced. other then that it has no go fast goodies and ive hit 127. im just asking why i havent hit a governor.

its different for automatics. i believe they dont have a governor.
but how you know that you were going 127mph? doesnt the speedometer end at 110mph? and maybe theres some space for like 5 more miles. but you did 127? is the gauge going of scale a lot? or it stops at a certain speed. hmm. or i am mistaken.

fyi. never drove or had an auto 240. got no clue about them.

You can tell speed by the RPMs.

i know i was doing 127 cuz i have a working digital speedo with hud.

so if i swap my auto over to a 5 speed that means i still wont have the governor correct?
