mcramsay is on a distinguished road

Mike my tacho is spot on, it reads the same as the laptop hooked up and reading direct from the ecu.

I have been at around 5000, I know there is a limiter set at 5500 as it's normal on most bmw's that could reach over 155. And I have the fault code standing which sets this limit. Been reading up on it loads. Very common in the racing world that use these engines.

My diff ratio is either 2.18 or 2.35 which are the ratios used in the e39 530d. Couple this with 225/50/16 tyres and this gives the ability to reach 80 in third without hitting the limiter.
