These engines in stock form fall off at 6200 rpms so what's the point of shifting out at 6500 or winding it up to 6800? And the reason why junkyard motors are still around is because they were put together right and nicely balanced so there's nothing surprising about what they are capable of. But these aren't junkyard motors, they have to live long and earn that title. chefred is one of the few lucky ones who wound up with a good engine build from the start. He's definitely earned his opinion here so I'm not trying to step on his toes but he doesn't have a stock top end. I've always had my suspicions that beating it up and driving it hard toughened them up so I guess ya never know. Sounds a little crazy but it's about the only reasonable explanation I can imagine you doing this, lol!
