    At full throttle only at 5200 rpms it feels like hit a rev limiter. I have H/C/I with a vortech. Plugs are new gapped at 30(22c). I have new MSD distributor and coil and ford racing wire(also new).It is not fuel, its spark. Has anyone else had this problem?

    do you have really tall gears? Couldn't a set of 4:10's cause this problem?

    at 5200 if you own an auto, the rev limiter will kick in. this is an easy fix.

    I hit my rev limiter two times. But I was definitely above 5200. Must been around 6500 rpms. Didn't even know I had one...
