Funny ECU dump data

I am in the process of trying to sell my 2006 Exige. I had an ECU dump done today at my local dealership for a prospective buyer. Most of the data seems appropriate, but there were a few strange things.

Max engine RPM - 13207, 8635, 8630, 8610, 8605.

I am of the opinion that the 13207 overrev would cause the engine to explode. As my engine is still fully intact, I question the validity of this reading. Further, the engine time on that RPM reading is within the last 2-3 hours of engine time. I have not had a misshift since owning the car that I can remember, much less in the last few hours of seat time.

Another strange reading is the Faster 0-100 KMH time - 25.5 seconds, and Last 0 -100 KMH - No Data Available. I think that means the the ECU has no record of the car ever going 0-100 KMH quicker than 25.5 seconds.

I ran across a post by xtn that seems to echo the 13000 RPM oddity.

Has anyone else encountered some ECU data that doesn't make sense? Any idea how this could happen? Corrupted data?

Hey, My Elise did 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds! Take that Veyron!!! :D (And I've got the ECU dump to prove it.)

It has been discussed before. It is a computer error.
+1. I had the exact same reading on my 06 Exige. Talked to the Regional tech rep for LotusCars USA, who in turn talked to the guys at Hethel. It is a known computer error, and I ultimately got documentation from LotusUSA indicating that the reading was an error and that my engine warranty was fully intact. Good to have with the documentation for the car if/when you sell it.
