Default 7100 Rpm on an Auto RS Integra???

Hi, I'm new to the forum soo sorry if this is in the wrong section. It had rained earlier today, so the road was still a little wet. Normally when I floor my car it stretches to about 6800 Rpm. But today I guess I hit a puddle or something and it went to 7100 Rpm...Do you think any damage has been done???If soo what is it??? Thanks, and sorry if this is in the wrong area

Sorry another quick question. I heard that pushing your car once and awhile is good, It burns off carbon or something. Is this true?

Well red lining you car isnt a good idea but if it only happened once then there shouldnt be any damage done

7100 rpm is actually a bit beyond redline in an Integra RS but it probably didn't damage your car. Most cars have a bit of buffer built in to prevent damage just make sure you don't do it if you can help it. While redlining your car isn't horrible for it you don't want to do it all the time just occasionally when you feel the need for a little speed. Also no pushing your car every once in awhile doesn't help it run better but as long as its only occasionally its not harmful either.

It seems to help mine run a little better. If I don't let it get up to about 3500, with load on the engine, once a month, it runs like crap untill I do. Runs alot better when I get on it. I think it has something to do with the low-RPM nature of my truck's engine and probably cloggage of the CAT, which the increased gas flow blows out. I doubt your car is gonna need to do that for the carbon burnoff reasons, as it's not an aging Detroit pick'em'up. It does sound good, tho, if there's no moo-bomb present.


7100RPM for a split second on the Integra = not gonna blow it up unless held there for a while. It IS a Honda, mechanically. Plus, the computer will kill it before it spins so fast it explodes.

A car as advanced as an Acura...... you need not worry about redlining it every now and then. No harm done.

Hah, i redlined my Prelude A LOT. Still ran strong when i sold it. Redlining isn't bad unless you do it everytime you drive. That is the point of the redline, not to go past it. If you go past it, yes that is bad.

To the OP. Going past redline a few times won't hurt it if its by a few hundred rpms. Now if you go past redline about 1000 rpms a few times, that could be bad. My buddy had a Prelude with the same engine as me (H22a) and i shifted at 7500-7600 rpms, and he always reamed it to 8000-8200. Needless to say now a few years later his engine is broke. I forgot what he said it was.

Small little Honda/Acura engines can take high rpms pretty well.

The redline is just that, a line you should not cross.

Yes, some engines will tolerate much abuse,... for a while. You WILL pay for it sometime, maybe not now, but your time will come.

I have now qualms taking a good solid engine to redline a few times. But as LS1Z28 said, you don't want to make a habit of driving like this daily. The engine experiences tremendous wear at high rpm. Things are moving very quickly and the forces on bearings, pistons, valve springs are incredible.

An older engine with, say, 200,000 km I would not take to redline. If you see signs of outside the engine, fouled plugs, rough idle, surging, overheating; anything that is not as it should be, that makes it a no-redline candidate. It's not worth the risk.

I had a 1992 Acura Legend with 220,000 kms. I wouldn't hesitate to take that to redline often, just loved that sound But the engine sounded very solid, smooth, no noises, it always had fresh quality oil in it. Honda/Acura makes darn good engines. But they can be busted too. RPMs can be addictive.
