well its nothing that i like to admit, but i accidently put my car in 2nd while trying to shift to 4th at 70. turns out that this was the 2nd time that this had happened, as my brother did the same thing when i let him borrow the car for the day. i have put about 10k on the car since and nary an issue. you should be fine. besides, thats what warranties are for........

I think you will be ok Jarrett,
You are over 1000 miles, which to me is break in ...The engine redline is lower than what an engine can really handle. You are good to go..The engine must have sounded YUMMY!!!!![cheers]

Most modern cars have rev limitters that will keep you from really frying the engine.

I'm sure you're fine.

I don't know how high you revved, but I shot over 7,000 many times while racing and quite frankly this engine feels like it car rev much higher than redline, although I wouldn't try it.[:D]

I confess, I've hit the limiter a few times in first when I forgot I had it in manumatic. No harm done. It didn't blow up or anything.

If you go a little pass the redline. I wouldn't think twice about it. All cars go pass the redline (a little) and the computer will not let you pass into trouble waters. The tranmission, has a safety which will not let shift down if you speed or rpm or to high. And if the engine and trans good, you covered under the warranty. (IT JUST HAPPEN).[angel][boink]

The rev limiter will not help you when you are traveling fast in 5th gear and want to downshift to 4th and accidentally hit 2nd. This is a sure fire way to blow your eninge espcially if it revs past the redline.
