You could hear about 7 grand come out of mine right now. Sounds like a vintage 289. I'll even give you a free snowball if ya want to stop up.

I think the sohc performs great up to about 7g's, then it drops off. I run my limiter at 7200 but seldom hop way up there. I can't see the point in a 5500 rpm limit with a solid valvetrain.. its not like theres any issues with floating lifters or valvelash..
