isnt that feature only available for autos? cause how does the computer compute that the car is in gear or outa gear? i can see that for autos but not for sticks.

The whole point of it is for launching. You set the neutral on for you launch RPM and then your other to whatever you want. You could do that on an auto, but your tranny won;t last long.

is a two step good for the motor? I hear that the Ford limiter pulls fuel and can cause a lean situation. So if you are slammin' the limiter at 3000 RPMs at every launch is that eventually going to damage the motor?

It won't cause damage if you only do it for short periods of time.

The neutral rev limiter is also useful for valets, kids that park cars at dealerships, tire stores, etc. where the car could be pegged in neutral for fun. Hi-revs in neutral are thought to be much more stressful on the engine than the same revs against a load (while in gear).
