7K? Dude, I'm scared to push my lil motor over 5K. They may be tough but why push it harder than needed? I can burn rubber in my V6 5sp on 1st-4th gear and never touch 4K. So anything more is excessive. The sucky part bout the V6 is my speed maxes out at 115mph. My Ford Windstar did 130 and still had more to give. Kinda sad a van outdoes a sports car right?
