It's on my 2010, or at least prior to changing the tune, it would not rev past 4k if you held the clutch down in gear.

They weren't. When the vert spun a bearing, you could barely get a short block for that. My fear is GM is getting out of the crate motor business with their move to EV, but that is pure speculation...
