doubt it.... power really levels out after about 6k.......
plus..... shifting that high could be dangerous to your engine........

Yea theres no benefit to reving these cars that high unless they are built for it. That would be very hard on the motor.
Your stock valvetrain wouldnt be up to the task. Also why would you want to rev higher?

cut out a hole under the pedal, that way you can push it down harder and go faster :thumbup:

If your friends cobra is on the stock engine then he is a idiot!! Pushrod engines do not do well with high revs.

+1, this will allow you to shift less often so your car will be faster.
