well whenever I get up against the launch control, after about 3-4 seconds the car will go into limp mode every time. I am not to sure what the heck the problem is and the dealership can not seem to figure the problem out either. I had a Boost leak and fixed that, well it cured the problem for about 2 days or so then it was back to going into limp mode again. Any help would be much appreciated guys and please no smart ass remarks like should not have bought jap crap or whatever.
How to recognize Limp in Mode
Sometimes the way a engine runs is because it's being told to run that way
so it will protect the engine and converter. We call this limp-in-mode.
It allows you to drive the vehicle but it limits power. In other words, it
allows you to "limp in" to the repair shop. Here's one way to recognize
that your in that mode.
How NOT to launch an EVO
I guess the main problem here, was that this driver was not the owner, and
because of how respectful he is, he ent want to launch the car hard, like
the owner might...."Drive it like you stole it man!"

Mk4 1.8t limp mode quick fix
On my way Driving to work car suddenly went into limp mode. Used code
reader/clearer to find what was causing this, came back with three codes:
16519 believe was O2 sensor
16684 + 16687 had to do with 3rd cylinder misfiring
Swapped out #3 coil pack and was good as new!
Possible things it could have been are: coil packs ( which it was), spark
plugs, wires connecting to coil packs, and also head gasket leak causing
antifreeze to leak into cylinder(thankfully not that!)
Among other possible thing.
went to limp mode with out even givin it gas
v6 integra (in limp mode)
j32a2 swap into a 1994 integra. Currently in limp mode with a 5800 rev
limit. Using/testing RPM SYSTEMS rpm converter.
Worlds fastest EVO X
phoenix productions presents
i shouldnt jump the gun and say this is the worlds fastest Evo, but hey,
it's pretty damn quick, so that's good enough for me!
Im down Puerto Rico way and I think we can safely assume that this white
Evo X is now making a little more than it's stock 291hp. The driver gets a
good start - so he's either rowing through a 6-speed or he's taking
advantage of launch control on the SST. Either way, the car does a very
respectable 10.77 seconds @ 125mph.

Potential EvoX TC-SST malfunction
In this video, I'm headed towards Denver on I-70 before the Eisenhower
tunnel, going uphill. You can see the RPMs jumping as the clutches in the
transmission feel like they are slipping. Near the end of the video, you
can see the center display say "SLOW DOWN" because the transmission
temperature is too high, likely because of all the slippage going on.
This all ended up being caused by a chain of items that were replaced. turbo, Exhaust manifold, downpipe, MAF, and more.
