Put it in first and put the accelerator to the floor. You'll find out.

Redline topic is interesting to me. I am by no way a heavy footed driver.
Besides I drive a 2004 Odyssey with kids sometimes. You get the picture!
Now, I have found that in almost all cases I could manage to pass somebody
below 4,000 rpm. I do not understand why redline is important consideration
for a car. It is meant to be used rarely.

I believe that doing redline too often shortens the life of the engine and
transmission considerably because of the heat generated which may warp the
aluminium engines.

I am not sure how they design the sports or high-rev/high-performance cars.
I was told that they can withstand more abuse than regular passenger cars
that we, the mortals, drive!

To find the redline of you 96 Accord, either check the manual or your
local Honda dealer. You can run the car up to it's rev limiter, provided
96's have them, because I don't know.

While excessive driving in high the higher reaches of your RPM band,
going to the redline periodically does not hurt the motor. Many drivers
used to driving automatics don't use the power that is available to them,
but I'm assuming that you are not passing someone turning 4000 RPM's in your
Oddssey's 5th gear (I think it has five). Your automatic has obviously
downshifted to 4th, 3rd or even 2nd (depending on throttle opening) to get
as much power out of the engine as possible. Honda has always believed in
making smaller displacement higher revving engines because they are more
efficient. In fact many cars (not just sports and performance cars) have
their transmission gear ratios specify tuned to keep the car in the power
band for acceleration and your peak horsepower is usually made very close to
the redline. It's only in top gear that the revs will drop as a concession
to fuel economy. If your car is properly warmed up, well tuned, has the oil
changed on schedule, has a clean air filter, and has had the timing chain /
belt cared for and changed at proper intervals, there's no reason to think
that a car won't reach the redline. Now I'm not suggesting that you drive
you car at the redline all the time but "running the revs" won't hurt it
either. As far as 4000 rpm's go, the VTEC in my 01 Prelude doesn't even
kick in until past 5200 RPM, so obviously "your results may vary," but the
only thing that really shortens the life of a Honda is lack of maintenance,
not revs.

Hope this helps

Rob

You are probably looking at 6500 rpm max on that engine.
