V6 RPM

Any data on maximum RPM of the 2005 Mustang V6. In otherwards the stock RPM redline and what would be the maximum RPM, with reliabilty when modifying the engine. Thanks,Spad

Re: V6 RPM

the key is not the max rpm the engine can take, its where the peak power is made, reving above that wont get you anywhere. In order to find that out you can look at stock dyno sheets etc or get yours dynoed. Redline != peak power.

Technically letting your car rev to redline let's you go faster even though you're dropping off the hp curve... When you shift higher you end up higher in your powerband...

Re: V6 RPM

thats very true in some cases, but just as its true in some its not as true in others but good point. Valve float I believe on the 3.8L is around 6400rpms-6500rpms

Re: V6 RPM

I'll try and be more specific, speaking of the 4 Liter, German derivatave V6 that is installed in the 2005 Mustang. Usually the revlimit is determined by the failure of various engine parts, mainly the crankshaft or valve float. I'm tryingto get an idea of the the V6's rpm limits. Thanks for yourcomments.
