Rev limiter should have taken care of you if you were gonna over-rev. Try not to make a habit of bouncing off of it though.

would hitting the rev limiter cause it to die down a bit..like cut the power a bit..?? if so then yea i hit the rev limiter and like i said the car is running fine, and no leaking that i can see or smell....and TRUST ME I WILL NOT EVER push it like that

Sounds like you hit the limiter. It's there to prevent you from damaging the engine.

If you damaged something it would most likely be a bearing inside the engine. You can't tell that's messed up by looking for drips. If she sounds normal while running, then you're fine.

If it's very badly messed up, it would feel like a misfire (one piston wouldn't be properly pushing on the crank or the valves wouldn't be working right).
Trust me...if something was messed up, you'd know it. The rev limiter is there for a reason and did it's job for you. It retarded the engine to prevent over-rev and damage.
You're good to go!

I have a lot of respect for someone that takes care of their car and appreciates it but for gods sake take that thing out for a walk every now and then. It is an f-body.
Sounds like you just banged the limiter. I wouldn't worry about it and move on....just don't make a habit of it.
