    Ive seen 6,500 rpm for the 1.9 and 6,800 rpm for the 1.6.

    Would disconnecting the battery reset the ECU and the rev limiter?

    my rev limiter cuts in at 6,700 rpm. had a play with the AFM (naughty naughty) and i could make it cut in at 5500 if i slackened the spring, and make it cut in at 7000 if i tightened the spring. the ecu takes a variety of information to calculate the cut off. let me find some information, and post again.

    I've seen the std. tach read 500RPM low on a 205. Check it against another source.
