4000 rpm???

I have the 275 and I was jack assing around last night and I hit 4000 RPM!!! is that a terrible thing!! it stayed there for what felt like a 2-3 seconds and sounded sweet but I can't see that being a great thing????

shouldn't it be governed??

I can't say that it is a good thing haha. But I've done it lots. As long as the motor is somewhat loaded and not just pinned out in park then who cares. If you hear a pop then it stops running suddenly then start worrying.lol.

I know mine looses power like a mofo after about 3500 with the manual. I'm always shifting around 3250 or so if I'm getting after it.

The trucks start to defuel heavily after 3500. Once there is more fuel available, I'm sure we'll run them up higher. Just like the 6.0L trucks, the engines are fine in the higher rpm's. The 6.4L trucks simply don't make any power over 3400, so it's not worth it.

My dyno hit 4100 RPM and when I posted the results I was lambasted for revving it that high. All ok still with 20,000 extra K in it since then!

It would be nice to have it governed at 3600 or something like that... I have heard bad stories about guys that voer rev... But I am still unsure what over revving is on this motor??
