    I was passing this no driving cell phone talking fool earlier and sure turned my little motor up real tight real quick. Where I was at I was not able to look at the Tach because I was too busy concentrating on not crashing.

    Does a 03 Silverado 2WD have a rev limiter?
    There is no redline on the Tach.

    I stomped it from about a 25mph roll and it downshifted hard and then wound up real tight, real fast. It seemed like it had to be above 5000rpm when I let off a little and let it shift and then hammered it again.

    So if I drop the hammer on this pig and hold it till she squeals, at what RPM will it change gears at.
    In other words: what are the factory WOT shift points?:eek:ut:

    hell i have an 05 silverado 2wd and i can stand on mine and it winds up to about 5800 and i know w/o a programmer that it will shutdown at 101 mph. i think the limiter is around 5900-6000

    Mine was the same way. My 1-2 shift is at 5400rpm but now that I have a programmer, I increased it to 6000 also.
