Default Would it be bad if i shifted at 7000 Rpms?

Is it Bad?Cuz redlines like what 6500?I'm not gonna be shifting at 7000 all the time just when i need too.Oh the car is a 92 honda prelude with about 151,000 miles on it and stock internals. 2.2 liter single cam.

It is never good to red line a car. It can couse severe damage. the f22 engine you are beating on is no good after 6000 rpm anyways. you're not gaining anything by shifting that high. quit beating on a good car!! respect the factory red line. you want more out of it do a h22 swap.

Depends on your level of courage.With that mileage the engine will put up with repeated trips to the upper limit of safe rpm's.If we consider the effect it has on the internals then it would be best to stay below such a high level of engine speeds.I have a 25 year old motorcycle with a redline of 11,000 rpms.It seldom goes above 9000 for good reason.

yea it kinda is bad.... youll blow your head prooly can shift at 7000 only because your motor is a 2.2 liter but in the long run its ganna cost you alot to change the head and the blown pistons. dont do it.

its not good for the engine or gearbox, if you only do it every now and then it should be ok, although mileage is quite high. the H22a in your prelude should handle it. i used to shift at 7,200 in my civic sometimes and now im getting crunching in my gear box at over 5000rpm! so be warned! the red line is where the engine should not be taken above as it will be under high pressure

i mean technically it is not going to kill the car right now, but it will burn your internals motor parts. so when your motor brakes down it will really fu*k up bro, chill with the high rev.... i always wanted that car... lucky
