I don't know if this has been covered yet but my cursory search didn't reveal anything....

Does anyone know when the rev limiter kicks in on a stock MCS? Is it modified with the JCW upgrade kit? Is there a soft limiter first and then a hard limiter?

I know that the MCS's peak power is at 6000rpm and the JCW is around 6950rpm.

Thanks in advance!

I think, after about 19000 miles of JCW driving that I might have forgotten about the original car's limiter. I actually hardly touched the limiter pre-JCW but I seem to remember thinking that it hadn't really changed too much, i.e. it seems to be about 7000 rpm.

With the original car I didn't bounce off the limiter too much because the car would stop pulling when it got above to 6.5K. I don't think the manufacturer's idea of peak power is quite right, but I would say that it is below the JCW car. The car (for the last 20 months) just keeps pulling all the way to the redline meaning that I bang it off the limiter now a lot more than I'm used to.
