    Why do you need to rev much higher then the stock red-line?

    Oh, and in response to your thread title..."Hi Dr. Nick!"

    i want to rev the limit because the turbo get full boost in 5000 rpm, so i have to remove little bit the limits so i will have more range
    the engine is not stock i replace the pistons,pistons rings,rods,bearings,head bolts ,but i did not touch the head of the engine it stays stock

    yeah dude hit the dyno your engine makes its highest amount of power at a certain rpm (normally found on a dyno) once you pass that rpm you start losing power

    Well you'd still need to install after-market valve-train components in order to safely rev that high anyway. As others pointed out, your engine power is going to peak at a certain point, and then drop. I'd say just get the turbo on it and get it tuned for now...
