Most figures I've heard for them are in the 7000 - 7200 max range

I'm guessing you must not be building a "street" engine if you're looking for 8,000rpm???

Like he said 7000-7200 RPM is as high as the computer can handle. Ed Wright has played the computer programming extensively in order to find a way around it with his low 10.00 NA Trans Am.

I my last project was going to be 500+ RWHP NA 392 LT1 with AFR 227s, single plane intake and huge solid roller but I have decided to part it out now, to focus on my 69 Camaro. To get around the limitations of the factory computer I bought a FAST ECM and wiring harness that piggybacks the factory PCM.
