View Full Version : KA24DE Cutting out up top?

11-13-2004, 04:53 AM
This is a ka24de question, but the engine lives in my 510. when im driving the car hard, usually in a straight line, but some times around turns and such, up towards the top of the rpm range the engine will cut out some times. im not sure whats causing this, and it could be from the fuel pump starving (all of the gas sloshing to the back). Is there anything related to the engine that could cause this to happen?

do these motors have a fuel or ignition cut at a certain rpm? what rpm is it at, and what does it feel like to hit it? i dont have a tach, and since its a swap into a non smog car that didnt come with the engine, not ALL of the electronic stuff is hooked up. is the rpm cut built into the ecu, if it has one?

thanks for any input, ill be happy to clarify if my discriptions suck.

There is an RPM limiter built into the ECU. If it's an engine from an S13, redline is at 6900 RPM and the limiter is around there.

Get a tach!
