He means how long can he hold it there, i assume. The rev limiter will keep the engine from destroying itself in the short term.

HOw long is it safe to rev the 2az-fe? I was curious if the tC can safely hold like 4,500 rpm's. Can anybody tell me really how rev happy the tC really is.
4,500 can be sustained indefinitely. You could run multiple tanks of gas at full load and 4500 rpm and still not "damage" the engine. The only downside is your rings will wear out faster than if you run at a lower rpm. When rpm goes up, ring service life goes down, simple physics, and unavoidable.

I guess im still getting over the fact that modern engines are more durable than the cars I was driven around in as a kid. If you reved my parents 427 corvette block for more than a few minutes it was over heatin. And if you did that in the summer, well lets just say you wern't going very far. Im talkin about a car that my dad wiped with a diaper and constently kept maintained. I guess engines just weren't that good in the 70's.

A lot of things weren't that good in the 70's. I remember it well.

He sold it in 1998, He now drives a 2003 Z06. Problem is he's retired and doesn't really drive it.
