The problem is really is just that the large venturi needs a large throttle to get a reasonable amount of signal. In other words an 850 is a better combination with the 1.430 venturi (same as the...

Your answer sucked and made zero sense. Allowing the engine to rev higher than what is safe by not using a limiter is much harder on parts according to your argument rather than cutting the spark. ...

Ok the loads are higher at high rpm I understand that and how those loads increase geometrically. But what does that have to do with a rev limiter? Allowing the engine to rev higher and not stop it...

There is a circle track in my area where they have a 6200rpm rev limit. Those guys hit the limiter hard two times a lap usually. They run about 1800 laps a year so that's about 3600 times that they...

So? How is that any worse than dropping the rpm on a shift point? It all still seems a LOT better than over speeding the valvetrain and dropping a valve. I say that stuff is myth. How would...

A high volume pump is completely unnecessary on just about any engine and the real trick is to simply build it with the correct clearances and reduce any unnecessary leaks in the system.
