What is the safest maximum RPM (that is worthwhile revving too) on an internally stock D16Z6(1993 sohc vtec out of a Del Sol, 110k miles)....my modifications will include: test pipe, 2 1/2 inch mandrel bent Cat-back with OBX canister, short ram intake, chipped ECU, vtec at 5100rpms, red line is at 8500 but I don't think I will be going there anytime soon :lol:

Any help appreciated, Matt

Project CX is about to happen :lol:
no higher than 7600. you will float the valves any more than that.
if you want mor revs, get valve train work
d16z6 is the sohc vtec right?? it's almost 5 in the morning in my area and came back from a night of drinking and can't really think straight right now, eheh.
