Default Rev limiter question?

Okay guys I was doing 70 mph, had some open road,
Put the pedal to the metal and to my surprise 105 mph, at 4700 rpm
the rev limiter shuts down engine.
Should'nt the rev limiter be 5800 RPM as advertised?

It may not be a rev limiter. I'd be looking at some info on what, if any, speed limiter is on the truck.

With my DSP I have the top speed limiter set to either 190 or 195! So pretty much I can go as fast as I want to! It takes off when I punch it on the highway! So get yourself a DSP and release the beast!

Probably.... Most Cars newer than 1990 are equiped with a top speed limiter. My step mom had a Grand Prix GT and the limiter cut it off at 115. The older chevy pickups ie. the 1993 that my dad used to own cut off at 95 mph. The programmers can fix this problem right up for you.

Also it's how fast it gets you there that matters and i am sure it get's there pretty darn quick.
