wont work, rev limit is set in the ecu on the 1.4 16v engines. its only suitable for non ecu cars or cars with aftermarket management.

if you fit it then the ecu will still cut the revs at 6800 rpm so it will work but only if you use it to lower the revs.

If you change down into 3rd from 5th at high speed a rev limiter will NOT prevent that.
It only works up the revs.

And x14xe's have two coils(DISpak)

She shouldn't be on the road if she gets mixed up changing down from 5th.
