I dont go near 4000, when I accelerate hard the speed goes from 0 to 89 very quickly only reaching btwn2-3000 RPM. then a warning comes on in which the engine lights up the RPM gage with red lights only up to 4000. when I stop turn it off then back on, the RPM gage goes back to normal, without the red lights on the 4000 mark.

I do not see a feature that will disable the high rpm warning, only a custom shop can configure that. Thats pretty much what information I have, if you like I can opt out and we can try another expert and see if someone else is more familiar, would you like that?
