Anyone have a AA,Dinan, JC, etc chip if so did any of you ever take it up to 7000 rpm because i was wondering if any m50 or s52 etc can even take that kind of punishment seeing as how we have 6 cylinders, i just want to see if any body has inputs of this, but yea 7000 im even get scared pulling up to 4700 let alone 7k

I pull into 7,000k every once in awhile; you have a rev limiter for a reason. However, power usually dies out at 6600rpm anyway, so I only go up to 7k if I'm doing it for sound effect.

Edit: Why in gods name are you scared of going to 4700? Are you crazy? That's where our cars get their power!

if u change the intake manifold and a few other things, these cars can peak at around 8000rpm. 7000 is where u will loose ur power cuz of the rev limiter so 6500 works better

Well he might be scared because he's used to driving a different generation of cars. Old Cast Iron push rod V8's. Its only in the last 15 years or so that cars rev limiters have jumped so high.

My 442 would rev to 4500......... (yes 4500)
My Grand National is a bit higher..... but not much

If you can find a dyno sheet somewhere, these cars will gain their power at 4500 through 6500. If you rev it to 7000, it wont break, if you dont do it EVERY time you're driving...

Don't be scared, they're BMW's for a reason.

i have the JC and I don't make it a point to take it to 7000 but it seemed to give me teh best runs if i took it to 6500 then shifted and it was just nice not to have it bounce off the rev limiter all the time, but yeah its good, but i know all about thinking that 7000 grand is high my last daily driver was a chevy sport truck that i shifted at 4000
