    You will definately end up doing some damage because the stock redline is only 8100

    your motor stops making torque at ~7800rpm. it's pointless to rev out higher. unless your gears are really long, you should be hitting the rpm at 5000+ in the next gear and that's well within the good stock powerband.

    not only is reving it that high harmful, it's pointless.

    what are you using to do this? air/fuel controllers aka vafc's are outdated and typically hurt performance, fyi.

    Dyno proven power or butt dyno proven power? I'm fairly sure it's just a rectal guess...

    Are you a fucking idiot, or what? Why did you even post this? I've personally told you twice now that you're going to fuck up your motor if you keep doing this, and other people agreed with me. How fucking dense are you?

    When we say that it's not making any more power up there we don't mean that the power just completely drops off, we just mean that the engine's already peaked. There's no point in revving that high because you're not going to make any ADDITIONAL POWER up there, and you're just going to fuck up the engine. There's no point in shifting that high, just shift when you're supposed to...

    Yes exactly what brutal said. Once your motor has peaked, you want to start the climb again. The ONLY reason to out rev like that is if your going to land too low in the next gear as is the case with H22s, but your not going to have that issue with a B-series.

    Since you don't want to stop reving out that far, do yourself a favor and go buy springs, retainers, valve guides, and valves so it can properly handle it... not that it would make you any faster since you would still be using stock cams.

    Please continue to do what you are doing, your motor will explode, and you will be off the streets for at least a little while.
