Hey just wondering if anyone else seems to have this happening? I have an 05' V6 Hatch MTX and whenever I bring it right up to redline as soon as it hits 6500 it feels like there is a loss of HP/Torque? I dont go all the way into redline on a regular basis but just relazied this today. Also its not the rev limiter cause that kicks in higher.

Thanks guys. So with saying that though to get maximum performance should you shift right before u get to redline or would it still give u a little extra power letting it go into the redline a bit.

It's awfully rare to find a motor that doesn't lose torque near it's rev limit.

At least a non-Honda motor anyway. Yea sure, they still lose torque but not very much. Have you seen the torque curves for their J series engines? Esp. their top end. Pheeeww...talk about impressive.

Eng,

You know the line dipping is the torque curve right?  They lose 50 ft/lbs in the last 1000 rpm.  Still a nice graph though!

Of course I do, why do you say? Oh you mean when the ecu starts pulling timing on the TL @ ~6200? Yea I kno that's a dip, but it's not due to air/fuel flow. :p lol j/p

And yea ur right, they do lose ~10-15wtq b/w any 2 500rpm ranges after 6k.

But I do agree, that those sure are pretty nice curves regardless.
