um......... either a motor swap that can handle the higher RPMS
OR keep your foot off the gas! you running HIGH RPMs all the time is destroying your car/tires/brakes/MPG, not only will get you into trouble with the cops VERY FAST! runing high rpms is louder motor/exaust, which usualy means speeding as well. so get used to the high insurance rates or wrecking your car for a total loss...

dont be stupid...... high rpms are only ment for the race track!

save for everything.... lead footing everywheres gonna make just about everything fail ALOT FASTER! brakes/motor/clutch/ gas/insurance/speeding tickets......

be smart about lead footing it! high RPMs kill everything.... could even kill you.
if your pushing the motor to its redline than its gonna blow in time! just chill out and slow down. higher rmps/racing is gonna get you in trouble FAST.

Honda motors love high RPMs, but a stock motor isn't designed to be there all the time. Like Addiction said, you'll need to be saving up for repair parts mostly, like brakes, etc. To actually make the motor run at high RPMs safely, the costs start going up very fast...

if you are wanting to rev high maybe look into a d16z6 vtec and build form there, if you build it right you can rev it high all day long. the non vtec motors are not really designed to be above 4500 to much
