Default how to get more.......?

i was just curiouse .... i was wondering if u can get more rpm's out of your engine? and if so how? ...... if my stock tachometer reads 8k and i buy a new tachometer that reads 10k is there a way to get 10k out of your engine? (i kno you can set the aftermarket tach to what your engine is capable of eg.8k) I was just wondering thats all .....

there's really no point. the only thing you're doing by that is making it take longer to hit power.

well technically a heavier foot and removing a govener would result in higher RPMs but you would break stuff.

there were a couple pretty involved threads a week or two ago. i'll dig up some links.

those two have the general gist...but its not discussed much here because general concensus is that building a car that makes power that high is kinda pointless.

yeah you dpass...but its not so much a physical thing as something programmed into your computer. youd have to replace the computer with something that you can fully manage.

youre engine makes its max power @6600 rpms......so going higher is pointless on a stock motor......its a good way to throw a rod too.
