    Are you driving a diesel? Just ride the redline once in a while and you'll be good

    My car has no lift shifting above 5k rpm, if you actually commit to it and don't back off thinking you're about to grenade the clutch it works quite well. Just need to keep the throttle absolutely pinned

    My red line is 8.5k and it’s good because it direct injection and you got to shake off the carbon and get the oil warmed up and engines run better when their loosened up anyway.

    I take my 16 year old 200k mile N52 up to the redline (7000 rpm) at least every couple of days.

    When I do that I’m more worried about the aging AC and power steering pulleys, the engine takes it like nothing over and over.

    I floor my 330k km IS200 and take it to 6000+ rpm regularly because it's a slow POS. Of course, I wait until it has warmed up first.

      Are you the guy with the oil disappearing issue? Did you end up finding anything?

        Nah, I'm not the same guy. Although my car burns some oil for sure.

    When it comes to car advice, don't listen to boomers.
    >don't rev over 5k
    >let her warm up for 5 minutes before you go
    >change oil every 3k

      You don't need to let it "warm up" before you go as it will take forever to warm up if it's just idling.

      But I think a lot of people are moronic and will start it, then after 30 sec think it's fine to rev it to 5k.

      Personally I redline my car every time I drive it. Low mileage straight 5 and it sounds too good not to rev.

      Starts just as fast as it did the day I got it and sounds just as good.

      I've had things break on me and I wonder if it's related to my way of driving. For example last year I replaced cambelt and all pulleys. I'm replacing the idler pulley this week because it is already fricked.

      So redlining and driving your car harder than the average person will wear components out faster. In my ownership I've had to replace basically all pulleys and belts more often than other people. But I also skimp out a bit on price and get the slightly cheaper ones.

      You do want to change your oil every 3k miles, thoughever. The "newer oil last more miles" is a meme made by car companies to sell more engines and spares.

        They do last more miles though. But still change every 3k. Just makes your maintenance that much better.

    Is it bad to bounce off your rev limiter?

      Do you own a Honda? If not, then yes it's bad.

      If yes, your Honda only grows stronger from it.

    At startup cycle, or after warming her up for a good long few? If the latter, fine. Do that to my Murican Pilot so often to “Italian tune up” the engine (not that it does anything, just feels like it does cuz dur dur murica logik)

    What engine? Cummins 6BT? No. BMW S54? Yes. Sportbike engine? 5k rpm is highway cruising speed.

    the only reason i don't do it as much is because i'm lazy and i like not having to top up the oil between changes
