I had a close call the other day where I had to get in the gas to get out of
it so I rammed the gas and hit about 5K rpm. When it hit 5K, it started
backfiring rapidly and i had to get off the gas b4 it shifted into 2nd gear.
I had a friend tell me it was probably a timing problem so I took it to the
dealer and they told me it was my rev limiter, that everything was fine. I
still didn't like the sound of it, shouldn't it have shifted b4 hitting the
limiter? It seemed as if it wasn't going to shift until i let up on the
pedal. If this is the case, what can I do to have it re programmed to shift
at 4500K rpm or so without spending $500 on a programmer? Would this be
something a shop/dealer can do for cheap? Other than that, everything seems
fine. Thanx in advance for any advice.
