I know going a tad bit over the redline is okay but were talkin about 1.5K over. What's the after effects =(.
NOTE: I was ahead of him till 55+ then i lost it (just a bit not far behind... very impressed) and i redline at ~80
Wow are you sure it went to 7K? I would think it would have a rev limiter....I dont know i've never tried that haha.
After effects....thats pretty bad for engine internals unless they are engineered to withstand it. I'm not sure what the 2.7 can take, you can be our guinea pig ok? haha
Plus going to 7k most likely does not really help you much. If the engine is not made for making power high up you are probably actually making less power at that rpm. You will probably go faster shifting at 5500rpms than you will shifting at 7k. Although you would have to see a dyno chart of your engine to confirm this.
