No DME, it's CIS. The rev limiter is a "relay" (small module) under the dr seat that get's it's signal from the CDI, and when you hit apporx 7k it shuts down the FP's.

You have a spring in your wastegate that prevents your boost form going much over .7bar, so in theory, you should never hit your overboost switch, which as I stated earlier, has nothing to do with rpm's. If you fell on your face at 7k, my guess is you hit the limiter. I've never ever rev'd mine that high. If I am on it, I'll shift right around 5.5k. No need to go any higher. If you want to bounce your car off the rev limiter, then go buy the rotor with the rev limiter for a 914. I had one on one of my earlier 911's and it worked really well, as it comes in around 5.8k.
