    Just thought I would share that the rev limiter kicked in at 115mph in 3rd gear and 133mph in 4th gear.

    Both times it didn't sound as if the motor was rev'd out, that is why I didn't shift and further proves my desire for a HUD display of the tach.

    Oh by the way if certain ears are listening this was all in a dream.:rolleyes:

    Ok help a brother out - is that something I can "program" and where would they show? If it's in the EVIC I don't think it would help I don't look down when pushing.

    I read manual and didn't see this option - you have peaked my interest, plese respond.

    its in the settings with the launch control on the SRT performance pages... you can set the light for what rpm u want for each gear... the entire DID display shows red so you can see it if your looking or not

    Stock the fuel cut is 6200 I believe in each gear. I have tuned my hellcat and now it holds power to 6700. Flat curve with no fall.

    I find the shift light useless in the DID, on a sunny day, it is all but invisible, I also do not like taking my eyes off the road, looking for the light.
    I think I am going to go old school and mount a tach with SL on the drivers side A pillar.
    Had this in my R/T

    The shift light is useless - I set them and as you say in the daylight I hit it again in 2nd gear. FCA IMHO provided a HUD with at least a tach - so easy, been around since at least '94 (had it on a Gran Prix GT), would have been so helpful.

    Mowe,
    Regarding your tune. Is your car a M6? If so did you notice a big difference with the tune? IE, throttle response, torque, HP increase? The shop down here in Houston will do a HP tune with a new PCM for $2400. They said you pick up around 30 to 35 HP & torque at the rear wheels. Basically is it worth the $2400.
