Max Safe RPM?

Thinking about having my tach recalibrated to a higher RPM scale on my track car and trying to determine the maximun safe RPM on the following engine...

'86 3.2l with Cosworth 11:1 Pistons + Niresist
Pauter Rods, 930 crank
Ti retainers, Triple coil valve springs
Twing plug/ Electromotive Crankfire
Elgin 315/300 (like a GE 80)
Boat-tailed, Ported
46IDAs Webers

Putting out 260HP@6.6K and 194Ft# @6.2k measured @ wheels. HP curve was still going up straight...


Thanks! Lou
