howsabout the RPM limiter? (supposed to be a connector beneath the ECU that
you unplug and leave that way - not sure which) I understand it to be the

you _should_ see more than that with your S4... My BMW has done better than
that with _luggage_, although I haven't visited that realm _yet_ in our S6W
