Re: Qulity of a Honda Engine + how long it Last

Lol MewwY I do that constantly. Rev it too high and it will just cut out, all cars do it. Nothing to worry about.

Re: Qulity of a Honda Engine + how long it Last

will be fine, as long as u dont do it in every gear!

tolenences in honda engines are really good compared to eg ford engines. my car is capable of revving (to the limit) 8400 so the occasional 9k rev limit you find on tuned cars is okay.

i had a ford engine from the box do 85,000 miles of about 99% full throttle. the block and pistons were fine. followed service schedule and sold it on. i heard it was going fine!

mines a lot better than my ford one (all the power that had it cut out like i put the brakes on!) and mine it hits is and bounces but i dont seem to get jerked as much! better ecu? even though my engine is from the 80s and the fiesta was from the late 90s!
