    It raises the limit a little. I think to 5800 or 6K. The shift points are the real limiting factor. It'll only ever hit redline if you manually shift it. It has a ignition cut limiter, so you WILL...

    As long as it's the same SCT model number and unlocks are available, it should work. Might even get a little power bump from it as it may have a canned tune that's a little more aggressive than stock.

    +1 bad meter. Use the lower (20V 2V) AC settings and see if those work. My experience with meters is that they usually don't break all settings, but just one here or there.

    1G alts may not have the output, but they are pretty well built and lost a long time. The 2G alts are a fire hazard and could burn a car to the ground.
