Thread: Thoughts for good Rev Limiter setup?

    Default Thoughts for good Rev Limiter setup?

    I'm trying to think of what's a good safe way to go with a Rev Limiter setup. This is a boat. I have a jet pump set that at full throttle the engine 572 BBC supercharged which is gear driven runs about 5800 RPM making about 1600 HP at about 18 pounds of boost. My Rev Limiter is currently setup as a 'soft' cut at 6100 RPM with the low side set at 6050. The way I understand, is as the engine passes 6050 the ECU starts pulling both fuel & spark in individual cylinders until it reaches 6100 for 'hard cut'. The only time this happens to me when running at full throttle and going over waves. Which at that point the engine really takes off. My goal is to make this transition from jumping out of the water to than loading the pump with water as stressless as possible on engine. In the Holley guide it recommends to keep the low side and high side close together, however, I'm thinking for my application it may make sense to separate it significantly more? Anyone have any thoughts on this? The truth is I try to avoid this scenario as much as possible, but at the same time I don't want to be scared of it, but I do feel uncomfortable trying to do it over and over to try and tune it. Just looking for some logic and thoughts that any of you may have? Thank you and sorry for the lengthy post.
