The gen 2 factory tune has the auto trans shifting at 6900 in S mode. The rev limiter is at 7000.

The FRPP tunes raise the shift point to 7400 and the rev limiter to 7500

So how exactly are you guys setting the rev limiter? With a tuning device?

I am or you ask your tuner if for some reason that option is locked out but it shouldn’t be

The stock limiter is at around 74-7500...so you're not going any higher than what the Ford engineers believe is safe and warrantable for this engine.

As long as you don't live at 7400 and you don't continuously bang off the rev limiter, you should be fine. High quality synthetic oil changed often and not letting the engine get too hot will help tremendously.

Thanks for the info! Yeah I got it because we guys obviously like to show off our cars once in a while and i got an axle back coming in so I just want to enjoy my car do some revs now and then :)
