If you guys with autos really wanna see of there is a limiter then leave it in gear. I wouldn't though. Leave it in drive and let the tranny do the shifting.

obviously i wondered what the limit was cause there was not one marked on the tach.

I have taken mine to 5,500 with no rev limiter and I think that is about the limit based on the way the touque curve dropped.

thanks for the info, and my 3.0 will never see 6,000!!!!!

this is just something i would like to know
With my computer OBDII hookup, i can view engine diagnostics and gauges. I can hit 6189 rpms MAX from first to second gear, automatic. But however, there is a lower neutral redline for 3600 rpms (limiter). Plus, in the auto, once you hit the redline, the torque (maybe only in my case) from the shift is enough to rocket you forward
