Basically the Rev limit is there to stop you going over 155 mph. So by lowering the Rev limit to 5500 there's no way you could reach that speed in the higher gears.

There are boxes on sale to replicate the signal if you are using non standard clocks but they are around 400! I did read up and find you can splice into the car sensor which has the correct output!

If you are only running up to 5500rpm, you have got no where near the full on power output from this engine - it is literally just getting going over 4000rpm, and keeps pulling harder and harder upto 8000rpm.

Get it sorted - you are missing so much more fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
