Toyota 4AGE doesn't rev out

My Toyota 4AGE 20V silvertop makes max power at about 6000 RPM, spec sheet says max power should be at the redline 7500 RPM. Is this to be expected as an engine gets older?

    Leaking electrolytic capacitors in the ECU can cause all sorts of strange issues. I suggest you get them changed by an electronics repairer

They dont get older if you drive them at 7500revs. an electronic tune up will solve the problem,but why to you want to kill it?

Automatic transmission

Transmission will never hold the engine back if it is going through the gears properly.If it gets into high gear, eventually the engine will reach "redline" if you stay into it long enough. ("redline" for any engine is the point at which it cannot run any faster without harming itself.) DO NOT confuse that with proper shift points which should happen just before you reach max torque which happens way before you reach "redline" at which point you are way past the torque peak of the engine, and making no usable torque or horsepower. An example of this is a race engine with a max rpm limit of 10,000rpm.("redline") Depending upon the torque curve (determined by compression, stroke and type of cam grind) you would likely be shifting gears at about 7500 to 8500RPM not at 10,000.
Therefore, your shift points are like climbing a ladder. you get just so high and though there are more steps, you will fall off if you go there. Each time you shift, you are putting the rpms back into the usable power band, till you reach the next step, then start over again. If your trans shifts early the engine will lug and labor. shifting too late and it will quickly reach "redline" and self destruct or go "flat". In a conversion, you need to make sure that the electronics that control shift points are working within the usable torque range.
OR install a manual valve body and shifter and control it like a stick shift car, using your brain as the computer and a tach to tell you where you are.

Honda s2000, 2001 loose of power when vtec engages I get to around 6000 rpm it sputters continues to 9000 rpm.No Engine light or codes. Vtec is working . I removed the solenoid and cleaned, replaced the...

If youe engine is stock - the VTECH should kick in at 5000-5500RPM.
Your car should be Dyno set. Every vehicle is different.

The 5000-5500 is good because if you were to set it down low it would almost be like having a non-vtec motor. If you set it at 6000, and your redline is 7000 then its not going to realy do anything. Again, almost like having a non-vtec motor.


The first two pics are examples of where VTEC should be set earlier to smooth out the curve - the latter is an example of where VTEC should be set later to smooth the line out. You want the least noticeable transition from the non-VTEC to the VTEC lobes on your cam. That's when you'll make the most power at every point in the rev range.

Too early and your engine stumbles while it tries to get into the efficiency range of your big lobe- Too late and you have a huge jump where you could have had more power a few hundred rpm sooner.
The first graph had the VTEC set later (4400rpm) so that I wouldn't be jumping in and out of VTEC all the time on the highway, the second is the stock S2000 (6000rpm) that Honda sets so that the customer can feel the VTEC kick in (sells cars because it's cool, but isn't the best for max power), and the third was just set too early because it wasn't a custom tune.

Hopefully that gives you a more visual explanation of why you want to set your VTEC crossover point on a dyno.

Another suggestion is to unplug the IACV (Idle Air Control Valve) and see if the bog persists.

Finally - you may have a clogged cat. Remove the plug for the Throttle body Sensor and check again for the bog.

If no bog under this condition - your cat must be gutted, removed, or replaced.
