sorry jorge, you're wrong. If the redline is at 8 from the factory, going to 7 every once in a while won't hurt it. I would check into maybe a chip or getting your computer reprogrammed as the next mod, then you can start diving into bigger cams and stuff like that.

your cars ivtec should kick in around 5,000 rpm not 6,000. the rsx type S k20 engine was designed to be a high reving engine so dont worry you can go up to 7,000 and it will be fine.

you can easily hit the rev limiter and nothing be wrong with that engine. it is so strong...the strongest vtec...max hp is at 7200 rpms anyway so when racing, you should prob shift around then. you should probably get some other basic bolt ons like throttle bodies and then go for the engine...cams, flywheel, make it even stronger, then turbocharge
