    It's the top end you need to worry about... The stock valve springs will float out. Upgrade them, you'd be good to 7k !!!
    I sprayed my stock bottom end for 4 years, shifting at 6900 - 7000 rpm !

    yeah, the top end is what you should be more concerned about. On a stock valvetrain I'd keep the stock limiter.

    thanx for the info,the top end is not stock already(h/c/i) was just wondering how much RPM i could get away with,with some reliabilty and most hp possible.

    have you had the car on a dyno yet? I'd set the rev limit about 200 rpms above where the cam strats dropping of (if your valve springs are rated higher)
