We oval track race a 2.5 ranger and run it right at the rev limiter of 6200.Our old motor had 197,000 on it and ran a whole season with it./one of the guys that race with us has one that had over 200,000 on it and he ran a chip and turned it 6600.If you just run it up to 58-6000 now and then,no big deal

I run my '83 up to 4K just getting on the freeway.

Up at the track I've seen a few turbo-efi setups that swear it doesn't open up until 6K. Terrifying if you ask me.

I'll stick to around 5K at MOST
