whats the point in going above 5 1/2 k rpms on e30? The car looses power here. And if you do have a chip it raises the rev, you know why? because the people who orriginally were getting the chips (before they were streamlined) already had engine work done, and on the m20 namely the head. The m20 head does not flow good at high rpms, its a sohc low rpm torquer.
Edit... i forgot this was in e36 forum... forget the m20 stuff, i dont know much about m50
