Is it bad? I had a friend last night drive my car, and he bounced the rev limiter twice before shifting into second gear. While it sounded cool and all, I was afraid if done too ofter, that it might **** up something. So, should I be paranoid about doing this or is it ok to bounce it??

thanks,

Nah!!! that's what it's there for. If you didn't have it then there'd be something to worry about.

Just don't run it that high all of the time, as long as you do it in moderation, it shouldn't hurt your engine too much, but that's what the 10 year warranty is there for...

Drive it like you stole it.

But yeah, the rev limiter is there for a reason, and if you bounce off it it's ok, just don't make it a habit!

Rev limiters are good for naturally aspirated cars. I run nitrous and rev limiter is bad, when I am juicing it and racing,if I hit the rev limiter I'm ****ed! The rev limiter is a fuel shut off, well the worst thing that could be for a juiced engine is leaning out. so yes they are good for naturally aspirated cars, but if your turbo'ed or nitrous'ed and you hit it your ****ed!<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Well, that last point about it being a good thing is true.

Our cars our HLA equipped (Hydraulic Lash Adjusters), and don't really like high rev's. You wouldn't want to rev past 7,000, because you risk damaging HLA's, and our head design will actually lose power at those rpms.
