Rev limiter

Post by Raul Mladin »

Hi everyone, I'm new here and I don't know exactly how to proceed but I hope you can help me, I have a Citroen ZX 1.9D (without turbo) and I'm curious if you can rev limiter from the button, kind of step 2, thank you very much.

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

I'm not clear what you want to do. Do you want to limit the revs the engine can do, or increase maximum engine speed?

The rev limit in a ZX 1.9D is determined by the injection pump mechanical governor and it is not advisable to raise it... It is not easily adjusted either...

There is nothing to be gained as no further power increases can be achieved by raising it.
