valve springs are the first limiting factor in the redline.
rod bolts would be the second limiting factor

ok.. well what I wanted to verify is that the description for that part says 1987-1989. What's odd is why would a 1986 3.2 be different than a 1987 3.2? Do 1986 3.2 engine have different bearings?
