Yea, what WJM said about his 89 RX. My '89 GL Sedan w/DR 5 speed and my '87 GL FWD 5 speed will both rev to 7300 RPM and both run clean and smooth @ those revs. My '88 GL 4WD w/3 AT goes to only 5500 to 5900 RPM. This one I suspect it has some form of rev limiter, fuel cut-out, or what not. The '88 GL will rev to 7300 just fine w/o a load on it. All of those tugs of the throttle happened with Sunoco Ultra in the fuel tanks, btw. I have taken into consideration that the factory tachometers could be off. I've only been working with EA-82 cars for about 6 months and I've never bothered to stick a timing light or tach on one, too busy 'wheeling them!
After a tear-down and inspection of an '86 EA-82T I can understand why they *could* actually turn 7500 RPM. Not that they're going to make lots of power @ 7500 with the cams they're stuffed with. I just thought that mabie the 5500 to 5900 RPM with the '88 w/AT *might* be an AT thing. No?:eh:
