Default d15b6 rpm

i know ive asked before in another post, its about the d15b6 only turning 5k rpm but i found somthing on d-series.org about the engine was

only designed to turn 5,000rpm i didnt know honda ever made a engine that did not turn at least 6,000, i figured this engine would turn

6,500-7,000 rpm been trying to find somthing wrong with it and cant other then it smokin. does anyone know if the 5k rpm is true or not for the d15b6

I don't see the point in revving it above 5k anyway.

weve taken the b6 up to 7500.........but of course the engine was bolted to an si tranny with an si head bolted on top with accompanying(sp?) parts). this makes for a very potent yet very very cheap set up. we put that set up into my buddies crx hf......it was potent enough to outrun my obd1 converted z6 swapped ef hatch pretty badly. the engine actually holds up pretty well in those rpms, and being the engine has lighter internals its a nice little screamer.

Given that peak hp occurs at 4500rpm, that is surprising final.
