    You will very likely have to change out the Spitfire igniton for an aftermarket such and Crane , Mallory , or heaven forbid MSD . I have never heard of being able to change the the factory limiter on OMCs
    You can never have too much horsepower or money...It's just hard to have both.

    Re: omc spitfire ignition

    yep thats what we were thinking as well....change it out. but, i have seen in another forum where the rev limiter is bypassed by tieing one wire with another and the third wire is connected with a diode to ground....thanks for the input.
