Would it cause any damage lets say shutting off engine while revving?

A little more detail please?

Are you wanting to know if … Revving the engine up and holding it there, then turning the engine off while still at high RPM’s will cause damage?

Is that the question?

If that is the question, then I would say no. The oil pump / water pump are still working while the crank is spinning. I see no probable harm, but that’s just my opinion.

I’d ping Recon and see what he says.

Short answer, killing the ignition does nothing to harm an engine. It's will stop rotating pretty quickly. We've all done it in the foxbody days when you're going for it and the gas pedal hangs up behind the floormat.
