Hi people

Just wanted to know what everyones opinion was on the subject. I was thinking of getting my rev limiter raised to 8,500 RPM. Anyone see any problems with operatiog as high as this? Is it the factory rods or the valve springs that are the limiting factor in this case? Or, is it simply the need the get the factory hardware balanced and you're all set? I imagine an extra 1,000 RPM would be great for making use of those big turbos!

Thanx in advance for any input.

The general idea is that with stock valves, and springs anything over 8,000 rpm with cause valve float. To run higher rpm, it usually requires new valves/ springs, and in some cases a balanced crankshaft.

Oh and you not even want to run higher rpms. Without the right turbo/ cam configuration, you might be losing power after a certain rpm.
