Your car won't have any problems yet, but I have problems with you doing it to your poor car!!!

They're good engine's, but nothing is invincible, and certainly isn't any young engine by any stretch of the imagination. Be careful.

no doubt, you cant help but open the thing up...thats what theyre designed for. i have 90k-ish and i have no problem flooring it, but you gotta be easy on it too...not even a new ferrari enzo is going to hold up long under extreme pressure.
hope youre using great oil, buddy lol

+1 on the oil.

if your gonna run it hard, at least have all the necessary fluids changed frequently.

Why do that to your car?

Did you think we would respond well to that comment?

I rapidly accelerate VERY often but go over 5500rpm maybe once a week and NEVER redline as i think it is pointless

In reality, you would have to neglect the car to hurt it as the engines are very strong and so just driving it hard shouldn't cause too many dramas
