For those thinking a higher rev limiter overkills the engine let me tell you this. I used to have a RenaultSport Clio 172, I put hotter cams and remap to suit, the limiter was set at 7,600 wheras the original setting was 7,200. The car is still out there punching all its power, it has 156,000 km, the last 50,000 are with cams in, plenty of trackdays and as said, in a dyno day it was still going very strong. I don't see the modern N52 engine being any weaker than the old F4R from Renault. In Erope the 130i cuts around 7,100, so 300 more nothing!
