    Why would you want to rev it higher? It's there to keep people from blowing their cars up.

    maybe he's got a grudge against his gearbox/driveshaft? nuetral drops on an engine with over 150 hp is always a very bad idea..

    I have mine raised to 6k. Every time I can get next to import car at a light I put it neutral and smash the pedal down bouncing off the limiter repeatedly. I yet to loose a race after this powerful display.

    Pardon my ignorance. I've only had my LS for about 2 months. It's an 03. So it is normal when in park for it rev slow and only up to 3,000 rpm. I understand the 3000 rev limit but why does it rev so slowly?

    Yep! That is normal. The computer says "I will not abuse my engine in Neutral or Park" It maintains command of the throttle by wire system and just refuses to play hot rod.:Bang :gr_devil:

    Well now of course I had to stomp on the gas in park and sure enough it revved to about 2800RPM.

    I tried the same on my Mitsubishi which is also drive-by-wire and it flew up toward the redline.:eek: :confused:
