6500

Probably has something to do with the fact that 85-6 uses different cams than 87+

Thats why 87+ gets that whopping 115HP ans 85-86 gets the little wimpy measly 111HP:burnout:

i just wanted to know.. i can run my new motor to my dashs redline and not be at the redline that the motor can run at.. hehe extra safety measure..


i may have only had 11hp with the original motor but i don't have a fuel cutoff, bwahaha.. :burnout:

Is the redline based on vehicle or engine? My 86 XT-GL (EA82) has a redline of 6.5k...

when I bought my 88 sedan it was 2wd auto and redline was at 6,000 rpm.

Once I swapped trannys I also swapped the gauges from a wagon into the sedan and it had a redline of 6,500 rpm.

My 87 RX has a redline of 6,500. Maybe the difference is between the auto and the stick tranny.

I don't know about the pre 86 as I have yet to own one

My 86 owner's manual calls it 6k for the manual and 6.5k for the automatic, that's on my EA82T. IIRC there are maybe other figures for carbed/SPFI engines.

Mmkay, so I bothered to look this one up in the '86 Owner's manual. It gives permissible engine speed:

For a GL models with AT, and any n/a GL-10: 6500
Everything else: 6000

Weird the GL AT models and GL-10 would be separate while a carbed DL and my Turbo MPFI GL-10 fall into the same category. Were those AT GL models and n/a GL-10s the cars that got SPFI in '86? Is that the determining factor?
