Software or No Software?

When I picked up my car in July, the previous owner told me the car had software. (Shark Injector)

Now I've been doing some reading and looking at dyno's and realized most 328's rev limiters are at 7000rpm. (With software)

Mine however, is only 6500. Isn't this stock?

What can I do to find out if I have software or not?

you probably don't have a software because most will rise the red line at 6900 rpm.
sorry !

Well I guess it's nice to know I'm putting out 198 whp with less mods than I thought I had.

did you search up the software?? see what the software upgrade provides... just cuz your rev limited might not be changes doesn't verify that you dont have it, see what the specs on it are first

I've been trying to find specs for 328's. I can find everything but upgrades for a 328 lol.

So far for every e36, the limiter is bumped to 7000. I don't see why the 328 would be any different.

Clue #1. He should have given you the shark programmer itself?

call Conforti. I believe they register the shark injector based on VIN, so they might be able to let you know if it's been purchased for your car.

Yeah the previous owner never gave me the shark. I don't even know if he was the one who would of sharked it.

I guess its a mystery. Is it possible to have the ECU scanned at a shop?

I'm 99% sure the M52 software has a 7000rpm limit. Your ECU is stock.

Poooo

Figured. Well on the upside I'm glad it's making a lot of power without it.

Guess I'll be looking into a JC Shark or AA software this summer.

Thanks for everyones input!

Talk to MarkD too. You may want some custom tuning for the manifold.

Good point. I planned on going to him if I got cams. But I'm still debating between cams or S52

We'll see.

BTW in the interest of science we need to race. Stock M52 with a 3.73LSD in my Ti, I'm curious.
