I dont really know the internals of my motor, i would assume the stroke & valve/valve hardware/springs would determine my safe redline,

i BELEIVE its an edelbrock crate 350cid 410HP motor, has edelbrock performer 6089 heads, roller rockers, (1.5:1? not sure )

what else should i try to find out? that is unless one of you dudes out there knows otherwise

please help lol

I was just being a smartass... But I do feel somewhat better after leaving work early and taking a 3 hour nap...

is just a somewhat expensive way to find out, that's all...

aonghus - redline is difficult to determine unless you know what all the parts are, what the cam is, compression, etc etc - IMHO There's two issues - 1. where your motor stops pulling or making power, 2. ...and redline is where it's getting close to coming apart.... most sbc's will live to 6000rpm - but it's usually an over rev that breaks a piston skirt, and weak springs that allow for a dropped valve, and or stocl parts flying apart to end up in cabooom! Real world stocker 5500-5700rpm is conservative. But yes - valve springs are critical..

According to the charts for hp/torque in the edlebrock catelog, they test the RPM engines to 6500 RPM. These engines include the 410hp Performer RPM engine, the Performer RPM E-Tec 435 hp, and the RPM E-Tec fuel injected engine 440hp. These engines use the Chevy ZZ4 bottom end which has the forged crank. If you have either of the Perfomer engines the 310 or 320 hp, they are tested to 5500 RPM. Those engines are not based on the ZZ4 bottom end and I don't think they have the forged crank. Hope this helps.
