Was wondering what the RPM limit is on the 5.4 (2001) since the tach gauge doesnt indicate anything at all.
Thanx

They have a fuel shut off so I wouldn't worry about it. The motor will stop making any useable power before that shutoff anyway. If you want a guess I'll say 5500 RPM. The old 5.0 would shut off at 6250. I believe because of the increased piston speed/longer stroke 5.4, 5500 would seem about right.
