    A SAFE redline is 5-6000. Normally your not making any power above 4500-5000 anyhow on a stock motor.

    5,000 rpm bone stock. Unless you're the original owner or you rebuilt it then I wouldn't go past 4400rpm. Even at 4400rpm you can break a ring on the ridge at the top of the cylinder.

    Unless you have put a manual/automatic shift kit in your TH350, the transmission will be deciding the maximum rpm of the engine.
