revving engine

can revving your engine hurt it? and i heard that you are not supposed to rev your engine.....not even a little bit.....if you have any type of cold air intake because revving an engine with cold air intake will ruin the engine if its revved. is this true that i cant rev my engine at all just because i have cold air intake??

lmao the only thing you should worry about with revving your engine is valve float but you would have to rev it pretty high for that.

The CAI has no effect on anything whoever told you that is an idiot.

x2 I did it to an old Ford with a 5.0 V8 but I red lined it. Took a little work and all was right again. The Grand Am's have a rev limiter installed @ 4k unless your in neutral and going above 15mph I think.

its not GOOD for it but doesnt really hurt anything.

now revving a COLD engine can do some damage but as long as the engine is warm you should be ok.

on older cars, you could crack the block by revving them real high when they were cold, but on newer engines this is virtually impossible.

I don't understand why you would rev the engine, unless you're trying to just make noise..... which is really fun to do sometimes, ie when you're driving past someone you know who is walking on the sidewalk and you let her rip 3 feet away from them

There is nothing performance about revving your motor unless in gear.
