    As long as the fuel cut is after that. I wouldn't go over the stock redline simply because it's not making much power after that.

    8200 is stock redline IIRC. It may feel like its making power past there but you won't know until you dyno it.

    [​IMG]nge there is no way you can go to 8800rpm on a stock ecu unless it is tuned or chiped but it is at 8400rpm like i said before :driver2:

    Thanks man:) , There is so many websites with different info .. I have a JDM b18C Integra type r , so im pretty sure that the USDM Type r's have a earlier redline but i may be wrong . Also im running the swap in a EG hatchback and its running on the stock ECU . I need to open it up to see if it has a chip in it , Or it must have got flashed (tuned) :mellow:

    well, we've said it several times... 8400 is the redline, but you can rev it to 8600
