    hey guys i just bought a 89 hatch si for 500 bucks at an auction andit hauls ass.dont get mad i still love my accord. anyways i was kinda testing out its limits and trying to find out the top speed for each gear and i dont hit the rev limiter. it has a d16a6 engine and the redline on the tach is around 6500. todya i pushed that sucker to about 7500 and the limiter did not kick in. now im wondering if the prior owner chipped the car(it was already lowered and had a custom exhaust ), or is the revlimiter suppose to kick in at a higher rpm. i just dont want to push it more it can handle it. thanks for any help. what should the stock rev limiter kick it at ??

    my buddy got one a while back, and his did same thing, but he had zc sohc non-vtec, yeah real old, but still beats many sohc cars. umm his didn't kick in till about 7700 and when we took off the cover we found out it was chipped, and I believe the rev on original d16a6, which me bro has, is like only 7000, but that's fine because you lose power around that anyways.

    that is an obd1, but there would be a chip in the spot that says EXTERNAL ROM in the bottom left.
