    I have been in the jap scene for 8 years now - the only things I have heard about the Bee* R rev limiter is that it has caused a number of engine failures!

    You could take the limiter to 6800 OK, and a lot of people go to 7000 too, but it is one of those things that isn't going to be a lot of use on a 2.8 unless it has an M50 manifold.

    Running rich as it is isn't a good sign, as they will monitor and correct this themselves, so there is something else holding it back.

    Agree with Zircon, I've been and still am in the Jap scene and I've seen from experience the damage the Bee R Rev Limters do to engines! A definate NO if you want your engine to last...

    Yep, don't worry about the limiter - just do the M50 mod to make better use of the revs you've got.

    If you want it lower than stock, then you can try, the problem stems from having a fiddle box infront of you where you can keep upping the values and then with no warning, the engine explodes!

    upping the values? the RPM limit are you talkin about?
    if someone wants their engine to last, they should def not take it past 6800 i think

    Has anyone here actually fitted them to a e36 ECU though?

    my advice would be bin it.
    Why do you want it in the first place? so you can send petrol into your exhaust in the hopes it might ignite?
    I'd also guess that because of the e36s coil over spark arrangement it would be near on impossible to simply wire it in.
    And but if you do get it working i'd love to figure out at what rpm you get valve lift and bend your exhaust valves. I'd also not worry about you engine exploding.
