I'd be surprised by a standalone use only ignition cut for a rev limiter. At those high rpms, the last thing you need is fuel (probably at max duty cycle) washing oil off your cylinder walls. I'd stay away from those standalones if I were you. Perhaps you're thinking about the MSD ignition-only products, where they have no control over the fueling?

Well, you're dead wrong.
