    the rev limiter is a good thing, learn to shift before u get there since ur losing hp at that point,

    bolt ons
    EMS- cobb, uteck, ecutek (id go with cobb)
    TBE- thats a downpipe and catback

    no no
    Cold Air Intake
    Blow Off Valve
    MBC

    Read your owners manual, it will explain how to change the shift light points. If this is what you mean.

    The rev limiter is there for a reason - so people who don't know when to shift don't blow up their motor.

    As for mods, start with a Cobb AccessPort or other engine management and a downpipe/uppipe or TBE.

    Maybe some cool blue lights for your winshield washer fluid too

    Wow, I just re-read the thread and see what you are asking. You want to disable the fuel cut, so you can continue past redline, instead of oh, shifting? Either ive just been trolled or certain people like to really kill their brand new 30K cars

    +1, why the hell would you want to hurt your poor wittle car? Get some engine management, the correct mods, and some tuning. Lemme guess you also rev to 6k and dump the clutch too?

    I would suggest leaving the rev limiter alone. Its there to protect your car, and probably for good reason. If you look at the dyno sheets you can see that as you approach redline power is not going up anyway. Do what everyone else suggests, get engine management (Cobb AP, UTEC, etc) and the mods that are a proven way to make power. Do your research and study before you perform any mods.
