Default Rev Limiter Reset

I noticed on honda's website that the 2 accord I4 engines have the same compression, bore and stroke,and displacement. The only difference is 300 extra RPM's. The result is 20 extra horsepower. So if I were to re-locate he limiter at 7100 or 7200 on my v6 instead of 6800, would I gain performance?

I agree with davy, just because two engines have the same bore, stroke, compression etc doesn't mean all the top end parts are the same (ie camshaft, timing, different style vtec).

All you would accomplish is pushing the engine 300 rpms further out of its power band, meaning less hp and slower acceleration.
