I might add that I used to shift at 7200-7500 RPM (Rev limiter is 7500 RPM).

The car feels like it will never stop pulling!

Once I opened the cases and saw the stock rod bolts (not 100% on this one), I felt very lucky from what I read from you guys I didn't turn the engine into connecting rod blender!

I think I will stick to about 6500 RPM tops after the rebuild. The HP peaked somewhere around there according to the dyno sheet.
